Yeah, but I'll bet his paycheck would have been a lot bigger than Urban's. Besides, given the age difference between Urban and Sinise (17 years), I believe Urban was the better choice. He just looks more the part. If they were doing a movie dating 20 years forward from it's current setting, then Sinise would have probably been a good choice.

Actually, the more I think about this, the better it sounds. Senise would be a brilliant choice! He also looks pretty young for his age. I think Urban will do a great job, but I think Senise would have been perfect with his voice and mannerisms. Good thought . .

Your all a bunch of bone heads...if you bothered to check the birthdates of any of the actors...you'd find their ages are right on the money for this period.

Urban is a bit young, Sinise a bit old. I too prefer the distinct difference in age between the characters of Kirk and Bones.

Urban will be great though. (I think Sinise would have been cool also)

I am going to speculate that Urban will be played as older then Kirk in this movie. Academy together deosn't mean that Bones isn't older. Damn'it he's a doctor!

It's all gonna come down to the story. Will it be any good? Thats the real question.

Oh, and on a side note, I live in the south (grew up in NYC), and Bones never had much of a "southern" accent. It was more Western then anything IMHO (and even then waaay light).

Remember DeForest had played in many westerns and to me that is the tack he took.

Oh I agree. He kinda talked like he was from New Mexico honestly. But there were times when he kinda put on a Southern Accent. I mean look at Star Trek V when he was talking about Tennessee whiskey.

This is from Wikipedia:

Kelley was born in Toccoa, Georgia, the son of Clora (née Casey) and Ernest David Kelley, who was a Baptist minister. Kelley was delivered in their home by his uncle, a prominent local physician. As a child, he sang in the church choir,[1] where he discovered that he enjoyed singing and was good at it. Eventually this led to solos and an appearance on radio station WSB in Atlanta. As a result of his radio work, he won an engagement with Lew Forbes and his orchestra at the Paramount Theater. In one of the Star Trek comic books it was stated that Dr. McCoy's father had been a Baptist preacher, an idea that apparently came from Kelley's own life as the son of a Baptist minister. Kelley had an older brother, Ernest Casey Kelley.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So he was born in Georgia...a true southern man. Sinise was born in Illinois...so I can forgive him for it.

But look at this comparison guys...Holy crap the resemblance is STRIKING...
