Default Klingons wanted

I think Christopher Lloyd and Christopher Plummer have been the best Klingon villains so far.

if any sequel involves the Klingons, what actors do you think would be good?

I think the guys from Prison Break would be good. they all flippin' huge!!!

I like to see some hand to hand combat between a Starfleet landing party and those guys.
Imagine Kirk going fisty cuffs with Linc the Sink??

the guy who plays Terry Tate (also of Prison Break) woulds be an awesome Klingon to "bring the pain"

Terry Crews, Damon on the Friday after Next movie.
Bill Romanowski, he's already a Klingon....he just doesn't have the head ridges.

Dang, I just had a mental picture, Sapp from UFC, one....BIG....FREAKIN...ANGRY KLINGON.

But among them, they will also need a venerable, honorable Klingon that serves as a catalyst (and somehow ends up cooperating with Kirk and crew) for helping bring the movie to a satisfactory (and very Trek-like) conclusion.

Say someone like Sean Connery or Ian McKellen.

Laurence Fishburne? Great voice and presence, fine actor but would he do Trek?

Not a single Klingon on this movie. At least they could have shown the battle between the Romulan ship and the Klingons.

I'd need to have an idea on what the Klingons will look like before I take a stab. Most people would expect something big and bulky like the previous saga but with this new one, anything can happen. Hell Klingons could be puny for all we know (goodness forbid!)
