I always thought it was the other way around, that the cardassian's were modeled on Walken!
I can totally see Damar going "I got a fever...and the only prescription...is MORE KANAR!"
Fun fact: You know who was almost Kruge in ST III? Edward James Olmos. You can look it up.
And that would've been just as bad as Jack Lord (of Hawaii Five-o fame) as Captain Kirk. Don't get me wrong: EJO is awesome, but imho only Christopher Lloyd could pull off being Krudge level nuttiness.
As for my pick for an alien: James Marsters as a Romulan. I think he'd be brilliant. He had auditioned for the part of Shinzon in Nemesis and I think he would've been a better choice.
Geez, how many people auditioned to play Shinzon? Apparently Jude Law and Michael Shanks did, now Marsters too?
Speaking of whom:
Shanks as Tobin Dax. You know you want it.
Yeah, but Marsters is the only one who can kinda be confirmed (if Marina Sirtis can be believed).
An interesting choice.
^ I thought I remembered that Shanks actually tried out for Tobin as well, although that was probably only a rumor or hoax.
Bjork as a Vorta.
I'm surprised nobody has thought of it before.
I love this. One of my "hobbies" is matching actors to their Star Trek alien races.
William Fichtner (could also play a Rommie)
Romulans or Vulcans:
that guy who played Brutus in Rome
Elizabeth Mitchell (could also play a Cardie)
Rosario Dawson (she's said that she'd do it)
Adam Baldwin, in whole-hog, crazy-ass mode
She's too weird for us, no thanks.
I think she is a Vorta. Your people don't have a sense of aesthetics. That was a huge giveaway.
Oh, you're right. We can't carry a tune.
Just to avoid spamming the thread with lots of huge pics, I'm just going to send you over to my Trek art gallery, where you can see Jude Law, Claire Danes, Katee Sackhoff, Gina Torres and Marc Warren as various Trek aliens (these were manips done for RPG characters).
Jude Law is an Andorian chan, Katee Sackhoff is a shen, Warren is a thaan, Danes is a zhen, and Gina Torres is a Klingon.
I'll take "Things that do not surprise me at all" for $1000, Alex.
I can see him as Gowron's little brother.
I agree that Adam Baldwin would make a great Klingon, but I'd like to see him do it as a QuchHa' - that is, a TOS Klingon. Having him be a 'normal' one would be too Jayne Cobb-ish.
The Olson twins, one klingon, one romulan. Let them play off against each other.
Romulan's are fairly slim, let the druggy twin be Romulan.
James Marsters doesn't look anything like a young Patrick Steward. But that it seems wasn't one of the qualifications for the role.
I kept getting distracted watching the Auburn-Mississippi State game yesterday because the ref looked like a young Marc Alaimo. Not kidding.
I can't believe I've never thought of it before, but Christopher Meloni definitely needs to play a Cardassian! I watched this Oz video recently and was reminded what a looong, muscular neck the guy has! Look at the beginning and end of the video in particular:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWp2cor35E8 And that body is perfect for the Cardie uniform!
Elijah Wood. No need for eye enhancement
Clancy Brown screams Klingon to me. And with her foot-long neck, Morena Baccarin is perfect for a Cardassian.
With just a little makeup, Mel Gibson and his beard could easily pass for a Tellarite.
