Star Trek: Enterprise may feature an original series Romulan playing a Vulcan in an early episode this season - Jack Donner, who played Subcommander Tal in the episode "The Enterprise Incicent."
An unnamed source has reported to TrekWeb that Donner may play a Vulcan priest in the episode "Home", which begins shooting this week at Paramount. Reportedly the episode features an arranged marriage planned between T'Pol and another Vulcan.
Donner, who auditioned to play a Romulan Praetor in Star Trek Nemesis, has appeared on many genre television shows including Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Roswell. While the original Star Trek was filming at Paramount, he appeared Mission: Impossible, which filmed on adjacent sound stages.
Earlier reports indicated that producers were looking for a known name to play T'Pol's mother in "Home", and possibly to consider "stunt casting" for her fiance as well. None of the information has been confirmed by Paramount, so it should be treated as rumour.
The original report is at TrekWeb.
