    If I lost some weight, and Dr Boudreaux was interpreted as Cajun...

    I have the right accent and wouldn't trip up on medical jargon, so I have that going for me.

    I haven't really followed this thread for a while, but I had some new cast ideas come to mind.

    Zhao Sheng: while I agree Chow Yun-Fat would be a good choice, I actually picture (of all people) Ken Watanabe.

    Ming Xiong: Jet Li is a good enough choice, but my personal pick is Will Yun Lee. Partly because he deserves bigger roles, and partly because I'd love to see him in Star Trek!
    Rick Yune would be a good alternative.

    Any roles you guys could recommend for Bryan Cranston?

    I can't think of any literature roles for him but I'd love to see him play Ronald Tracey.

    Lela Dax (Specifically as of First Steps)?

    Emony Dax, as of Old Souls?

    Audrid Dax, as of Sins of the Mother?

    Torias Dax, as of Infinity?

    I went with Juliana Margulies (The Good Wife) as Audrid. The reserved but caring mother and professional just seemed the type.

    Ken Leung as Torias Dax because he seemed the young and energetic type.

    Emony was a gymnast, so how about Amy Jo Johnson?

    ^Yes. However, it's only in minor roles, such as 'USS Enterprise Operations Division Ensign'. Nothing especially grandiose!

    Everybody risks Mary-Sueing themselves at some point. Not Trek, but I did cast myself as the lead terrorist in Destination Zero, just because if I was an actor I'd find that kind of character more fun to play.

    As for casting myself in a role in somebody else's story that I'm reading, well, there's always the Doctor...

    You wish to be a perpetually half-dead criminal madman on the run for terrorism, piracy and the murder of children? :p

    He was deformed without ridges. Not a real albino.

    I've mentally recast Janeway as Kirsten Beyer, which may sound strange, but I'm not fond of Kate Mulgrew. It was this photo that gave me the idea :

    I love this idea. Never disliked Mulgrew, but I think Kirsten would make a great Janeway.

    Someone suggestet Helen Mirren as Bacco. That was my thought exactly. Or Dame Judi Dench as Bacco.

    Esperanza: Salma Hayek

    Any suggestions for Sam Bowers, Shar and Vedek Yevir?

    Samuel Anderson (Danny Pink from Doctor Who) would make a good Sam Bowers.

    He would. I've always imagined the guy that played Principal Wood in Buffy's seventh season, but that's also a strong choice.

    I will never not picture Sam Bowers as played by Terry Crews.

    It's so wrong, I know, but also so very right.

    I disagree with those options. I think Mirren and Dench's affects are both entirely too upper-class English. You need someone who's more abrasive/charismatic, salt-of-the-earth, American, or at least has that vibe. More of a working-class or middle-class vibe.

    I still vote for Kathy Bates, m'self.
