*Mods* Kindly feel free to move this to either of the Movies, or the TV boards, as you see fit.* Hey gang, Here are my casting choices for a remake of the original series of Star Trek, as either a movie or a new series: As Spock, there can really be only one choice, can't there? My pick is Hugo Weaving. Duhh!! We already know that he looks great in pointed ears, right? And thanks to the implosion of the Matrix franchise, I can't say that he's already typecast. Athough its a mighty tall order, I believe firmly that he's got the skill as an actor to make us forget Nimoy. And he's the right age for the part. As McCoy, I admit I'm partially basing this choice on physical similarity, 'tho he's surely no slouch in the acting department. He's Gary Sinise. 'nuff said. My casting of Kirk poses the greatest difficulty. The problem in casting the three parts, to my mind, is that there must be a semblance of 'balance' to it. That is to say, it cannot star BRUCE WILLIS AS KIRK, above the title, and two dudes in the other parts. While the role of Kirk is likely the showiest, playing Spock is probably a far greater challenge for an actor (playing with no emotion is like playing a part beneath a mask. Ask John Belushi or Micheal Keaton). Therefore, the role of Kirk requires an actor of mid-level stature (could come from TV or movies, but the name must not be big enough to upset the Weaving/Sinise apple-cart), in possession of serious chops, and the actor must be a few years, but not too many, younger than either of the other fellows. My pick for the role of Kirk is...Thomas Jane. I'm surely not the only one to have ever considered this, and as such, opinions are heartily welcome. Cheers! DS.
