A familiar name might be coming to the new Star Trek series set to debut next January
During a podcast for MORTIS, actor Tony Todd claimed to be on casting short list for Star Trek Seven.
Todd is very familiar to Trek fans as Worf’s older brother and as an older Jake Sisko in Deep Space Nine‘s The Visitor.
“CBS is doing their own series again,” said Todd. “I’m on a very short [casting] list.
“It’s a year away. They’re not even going to get official cast until, probably, the fourth quarter of the year. And my only concern about it is that it’s going to be that [CBS All Access] online thing. I don’t understand that part.
“I’ve never done a series regular — I’ve always avoided it because I like playing different characters — but this is one year that we’re looking at some stuff, so I’m sure that we’re going to be popping up and everybody’s going to move on sometime very soon.”
Until this is confirmed, it’s just a rumor, but an interesting one nonetheless.
