Letters of Note posted this memo regarding casting Star Trek: The Next Generation. Dude, Kevin Peter Hall could have been Data or Geordi! If you do not know who Kevin Peter Hall is, shame on you. He played THE Predator and Harry of Harry and the Hendersons fame. Sadly, he passed away in 1991. Yaphet Kotto was considered for Picard. That’s G from Homicide you ignorant dummies! If you like The Wire, watch Homicide. Anyway, just think how different Star Trek could have been. I love Yaphet Kotto, but I cannot see anyone else as Picard. Patrick Stewart is the man.
