He's too old, for cryin' out loud! This has been mentioned many times before. I love him as an actor and he would have been perfect for the role if it had been set sometime around the period when TMP took place. But the man is 53 years old now!
Besides, Karl Urban has received a lot of praise so far for his performance (and that only from a couple of scenes) so I think he was a wonderful choice as well.
