Montgomery: 'Enterprise' Cast Like My FamilyBy Lisa

Anthony Montgomery (Travis Mayweather) said today that the other members of the Enterprise cast feel like his family.
"I'm closest with Dominic [Keating]. But I'm close to everybody," Montgomery told Zap2It. "I'm as comfortable calling Dominic in the middle of the night as I am Scott [Bakula]. I've got four brothers and two sisters now. We're a family in every sense."
Of course, having two seriously attractive 'sisters' can be problematic. "As soon as people realise that it's me that's in front of them - because I look like this, I don't have the visor, I don't have the forehead, I just look like me - they inevitably start freaking about Jolene," the actor explained.
"I go, 'Yeah, Jolene is cute.' They're like, 'Oh my God, don't you just...?' 'No, I don't. I never do. I never thought about it, quite honestly. She's my sister.' I don't think about having sex with my own sisters; I promise you I don't.
"We have a job to do, and realistically, differently than any other show, we're probably going to be part of each other's lives for the rest of our lives, more so than any show that people will ever work on," he continued.
Continuing the family theme, Montgomery has spent time thinking of Mayweather's ideal parents. "I'd love Morgan Freeman to be a grandfather. Danny Glover would be a wonderful father," he said. "But what would really be wonderful - I don't think it would ever be possible - is having Nichelle Nichols play a grandmother or some sort of mentor to Travis, somebody he went somewhere and saw."
"I would want it to be Nichelle, just because the first original African-American in space to meet the current one - that would be absolutely great, and having her impart some wisdom into Travis... I just want him to keep growing, whatever it means."
