    Professor X seems like a mentally-augmented Picard.

    No, unless they're not very good actors who can only play themselves like Robert Beltran.

    IIRC, in the X-Men/TNG crossover series, there was an explanation as to why Captain Picard and Professor X looked remarkably similar (the comic went with the idea that Professor X looked like the Bryan Singer version).

    I'd be lying if I said I did.

    I pretend they're men and women doing a job.

    I'm weird that way.

    Actually, the familiarity of an actor playing one part too long can create a bias against hiring them for that very reason (the reason of "oh look it's Data playing in a romance movie") this is referred to as type casting.

    I think you haven`t watch the cult classic ""Eating Raoul" yet. You should.
    The Criterion Collection releases an extras-laden version of cult comedy Eating Raoul on DVD and Blu-ray.

    I will be honest, and say that I couldn't get through an episode of Seventh Heaven without thinking that the family was headed by an ancestor of Will Decker, who happened to marry Gillian Taylor's identical twin sister...

    When Michael Dorn played Beckett's psychiatrist in Castle; kind of sounded like Counselor Worf, which was just weird (and cool at the same time).
    Otherwise, no.

    Its funny you mention this OP since I watched an early season of Dallas where Kate Mulgrew played a country singer and it struck me funny to think that Capt. Janeway likes Dallas holodeck adventures. LOL

    There was a "Spiderman" episode which featured William Smithers(I think that's his name) and Andrew Robinson. (Merrick and Garek.) Can't do holodeck adventures with cross-cast persons.

    It must be Lore instead of Data, then, in that movie where Brent Spiner has some people locked up in a cage, since emotion is shown. (No idea what the movie's name is, and I frankly don't give a crap.)
