Default Roles You'd Luv To See Voyager Actors In

I'll start. Kate Mulgrew as Lady MacBeth. Tim Russ as Barack Obama when they make a movie about his life.

The problem is that Tim Russ is older than Barack Obama already.

I'm talkin TV movie, HBO. They wouldn't have the bucks to afford Smith. Russ would be better anyway. He looks more like him.

I think I missed the part where Shakesphere mentions an age for Lady MacBeth, can you enlighten us?

If (and only if) she can sing, I'd like to see Kate Mulgrew be Donna from Mamma Mia. She'd be fab at taht. She is excellent as an old lush in "Mercy"

I'm just following Patrik Stewart's interpretation of MacBeth, that he is sexual dominated by a younger woman.

When I began reading MacBeth, VOYAGER was on the air and for some reason I naturally imagined Kate Mulgrew as Lady MacBeth. I see her more as a strong, power hungry woman who dominates a weaker willed man, I didn't really get the hint that sex had anything to do with it.

But Kate was about 38 at the time Voyager started, she's now about 54.
