    Not familiar with her, but from photos, she looks like roughly the right type.

    Not an Orange is the New Black viewer, then? She plays a character named Brook Soso.

    For whatever reason, I always cast Nan Bacco as looking and sounding like Future Janeway Despite there really being no connection there.

    Oh, Soso is good casting for T'ryssa.

    I've always thought that mental image (because I've had it myself, and tried to get away from it since I've seen KRAD get frustrated about that particular imagery) came from the cover - there is something about the posing, stance, and the hair of the image on the cover of Articles of the Federation that gives off the 'Admiral Janeway' appearance to me.

    After seeing The Force Awakens, though, I think Carrie Fisher might be a good fit for President Bacco. Especially considering all the interviews she's had plus her tweets.

    Thinking about it, he would make a wonderful David Gold.

    ^ He was also in the WKRP "Turkeys Away" ep, I think.

    The thing that made me think of Fairman was that he kinda looks like the Thelin who's on the cover of Myriad Universes. I wonder who that actually was.

    Oh yeah, Fairman might actually make rather a good Gold......

    I've only found one other suggestion for Julia Paris (though, I honestly haven't ready all 136 pages of posts), but I always picture her as Blythe Danner, and I thought I'd share that with you all...

    ^Every time I hear her name, I think "Hail to thee, Blythe Danner! Bird thou never wert."

    How about Ragnhild Gudbrandsen for Pres. Bacco? She plays spymaster Wenche Arnesen on the excellent Norwegian series OCCUPIED.

    My choice for Bacco is Kathy Bates. I cannot see anyone else doing it,

    I pictured her in the Bacco role for the Typhon Pact and Fall novels. She's a great fit.

    I'm reading the S.C.E. novellas and my head decided to cast Michael Gross as Bart. Anybody have casting suggestions for the non tv characters of S.C.E.?

    In my most recent sweep, I put down Ellen Page for Soloman, Linda Cardellini for Carol Abramowitz, and Michael Sheen for Bart Faulwell. That last one's definitely not perfect. I'm not familiar enough with voice actors to come up with anyone suitable for P8 Blue.

    I just started my first adventure into the LitVerse and I did this for a ton of the ENT Rise of the Federation characters. Gonna go through this thread a little to see if anyone has pitched in before I list anything. Can't wait to keep moving through the books with some of the creative visual input here.
