    As the title says, are there any actors or actresses out there that you would love to see cast in the next series?

    You can be as realistic or outrageous as you want (though please make sure they're living, no zombies on set please :)).

    If you want, you can create a character idea for them as well.

    For me, I would love to see Summer Glau in the next Trek series. I don't know exactly why, but I love her.

    Where's the fun in just looking up old, tired, and wore out threads, when we can begin fresh and start anew?

    I nominate 44 year old Michael Weatherly from NCIS. A real good looking guy, with a nice wide acting range. Just right for starship Captain.

    The OP didn't just limit our choices to just who we'd like to see play captain either, so that's different from the other thread.

    I'd nominate Arthur Darvill (who recently played Rory Williams on Doctor Who) as an occasionally high-strung, but still loveable chief engineer.

    That other thread was for starship captain, this is for any cast member, regular or recurring. For example, I could see 31 year old Summer Glau being Operations or Science Officer.

    T'Girl, good call on Mr Weatherly :bolian:

    Lance Reddick is my vote for the next captain. He's a big Trekkie and Fringe is ending so he'll be at liberty soon.

    I'd like to see Ben Browder cast as a villain of some sort.

    Eventually, in Star Trek: MY Way, Summer Glau will portray a robot with a positronic brain. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

    Wow. I've made up entire casts for threads like this. May not have it in me again...

    Ah, WTH. Let's be outrageous:


    Erica Cerra: Commanding Officer, In command of the ship and overall mission.

    Charlize Theron: Science Officer, co-captain and mission specialist.

    Anna Silk: Chief Medical Officer

    Christopher Judge: Command Master Chief, the most senior enlisted man.

    Chris Hemsworth: Head of Security

    Michelle Borth: Commander, Support Craft Fleet

    Enver Gjokaj: Tactical Officer

    Elise Neal: Chief Engineer

    For Security Chief, I nominate Snake Plissken.

    Plissken? I heard he was dead. Wouldn't that d-q him in this thread? ;)

    Which means he gets killed first. Perfect! Any opportunity to kill Justin Bieber!

    Justin Bieber is invulnerable, owing to the field of invincibility generated by his perfect hair.

    He could be like Remmick and hosting another mother parasite, so that we can watch him explode, the rewind and watch it again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and...

    I'm no fan of Justin Beiber's, but, why such hatred? It's not like he's a sparkly Vampire or anything ;)

    He's worse because he actually exists :lol:

    As for sparkly vamps, I have never and will never watch Twilight, so to me that isn't even an option :)

    But enough of the Bieber hatred, and back to the thread. Who would you want cast?

    I thought teacake's choice of Morena Baccarin (sp?) as nuT'Pring - or basically any potential Vulcan/Romulan - was inspired. Come to think of it, wouldn't mind either Claire Danes or Damian Lewis as captains. Can you imagine Danes as pyscho-nuJaneway? :)

    For T'Pring, I'd opt for Kristen Ritter or Lizzie Caplan.

    I don't have any solid demands for Main cast, but recurring and Guest, I have a pile of wants

    Mira Furlan would make an excellent Vulcan or Andorian (Or even a Romulan)
    Fionnula Flannigan, we've seen as Cardassian and Vulcan, I'd like to see her as an Andorian
    Jefferey Combs hasn't done Romulan yet
    Ronnie Cox, I'd love to see him in one more Iconic role before he retires
    Michael Emerson could be great as a Gowron Relative (Or actually anyone in heavy prosthetics, because of his intense eyes)
    JG HErtzler as another Alien
    I third Morena Baccarain as T'Pring

    Yes, that list skews old, but, again, not main cast, and of course I'd settle for them as new Aliens
