Much better .
Greenwood's an excellent actor, but he's a bit too -- I dunno, sonorous? -- to be Pran. Pran's a bit more loose and freewheeling. I can see either Glass or Hyman in the role with little difficulty -- though, again, the template for the character is Arlo.
I really enjoyed the character, and I hope we see him again soon
Just finished "Articles of the Federation" For parts of the novel, I just had a mental image of Richard Schiff as Kant Jorell.
It's probably down to recently rewatching some scenes where his West Wing Character was acting as Press Secretary
^Actually, lately my mental image of Kant Jorel has been the guy in your avatar. (And I'll specify that's Hugh Laurie, so this will still make sense if your avatar changes.)
I always saw Kant Jorel as Kurtwood Smith in full Red Foreman mode. Though Richard Schiff and Hugh Laurie would no doubt do wonderfully, too.
I can't see past Nathan Fillion for Calhoun, but I never read that many New Frontier novels.
My mom, says the same thing too, and I could definitely see. NF is the only Trek that she reads, but for a while now I've been trying to convince her to read some of th other series. Sadly I haven't had any luck yet.
Me too. Kurtwood Smith would be perfect for Kant...just a little younger than he is now...
Hm. I see no reason for Kant to have any particular age.
Believe it or not, there are working black actresses other than Angela Bassett. (Granted, there aren't many roles for them -- fewer still than for white women.)
For Captain Eden, how about Barbara Eve Harris? (Agent Lang from Prison Break.)
I like that. She would be great in the role IMO.
I have a tendency to imagine Andorians as Shran, so Shar is stuck with Jeffrey Combs for me. His mum always speaks with a very posh British accent in my mind.
Vaughn sounds kind of like Shatner's voice (Shatner's voice nowadays, that is) to me (Though I certainly don't imagine him looking like Shatner).
^ No and emphatically no.
Good grief, this thread is over 1550 posts long. I wonder how long it would take for someone to go back through it and compile a list of the most popular casting suggestions for each character, maybe broken down by series. If someone could spare the time to do that (and I doubt that I could), maybe it could be made the start of a new pinned thread to replace this one -- otherwise it would pretty much get lost in the middle. (But with a link to the old thread so other suggestions would still be accessible, if anyone wanted to slog through 1550-odd posts.)
^Not a bad idea. Good luck to whoever endeavors to do that though.
Shall I appear to be utterly stupid by making casting suggestions for Iliana Ghemor? I could do that.
^I think Nana Visitor would do a commendable job as Ghemor. I know she already played Kira on DS9, but I just can't picture anyone else
LOL. I actually was making a list awhile back and still have it. I just haven't updated since page 57 or 58 on here.
Well, if you ever update it, feel free to start a new thread, and either LS or myself will do closing, unpinning and pinning.
