Wesley Snipes as Geordi LaForge?

The mind boggles at some of the casting suggestions in this memo, dated from the beginnings of ST:TNG:



in scientific notation, hoo to the ha power.

Could you imagine Reggie Jackson(!) as Geordi?

Of course we know that Denise Crosby was cast, but as Tasha not Troi.

It is interesting to note that Brent Spiner, Gates McFadden, and Marina Sirtis are not even listed.

Wait, do they mean the baseball star or somebody else with the same name?

I assume the baseball star.

I notice he's 16 years older than Snipes. They must not have had a very specific image in mind.

The ones I'm kinda intrigued by are Rosalind Chao (Soon-Lee in MASH, Keiko in TNG) as Tasha Yar (and the favorite, even) and Ben Murphy (!!; Gemini Man) as Ryker. Weird that J.D. Roth (now most known for The Biggest Loser) was the "only possibility" for Wesley at this point.

BTW, Gates McFadden's full name is Cheryl Gates McFadden, so she was favorite as Beverly Crusher from early on (it looks like the play in San Diego worked out).

I was wondering about Cheryl = Gates, but I didn't a very deep search. :=/

Per our previous conversation:
I find it interesting that only one of the actors considered for Picard would have been a native french speaker.

You may want to have another look at Jacques Cousteau's programs. I'm becoming more and more convinced that he was the model for Picard.

(Not only that, I'm pretty sure he was the model for Captain Majors of the Calico in the old 1970's Godzilla cartoon.)
