dream cast: hypothetical ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ movie

It’s Thursday, so it’s time to remake an 80s classic TV show or movie with an all-new cast. This week: Star Trek: The Next Generation, the 1987-1994 syndication science fiction show. Hey, if J.J. Abrams can do it with the old Trek, we can do it with the new.

(If you have a suggestion for an 80s TV show or movie we should play with, feel free to email me.)
The original cast included:

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Patrick Stewart
Commander William T. Riker: Jonathan Frakes
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: LeVar Burton
Counselor Deanna Troi: Marina Sirtis
Lt. Commander Data: Brent Spiner
Lieutenant Worf: Michael Dorn
Doctor Beverly Crusher: Gates McFadden
Wesley Crusher: Wil Wheaton
Chief Miles O’Brien: Colm Meaney
Lieutenant Tasha Yar: Denise Crosby
Guinan: Whoopi Goldberg
Q: John de Lancie
Barclay: Dwight Schultz

My dream remake cast:

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Linus Roache
Commander William T. Riker: Nathan Fillion
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Will Smith
Counselor Daniel Troi (gender switch!): Milo Ventimiglia
Lt. Commander Data (gender switch!): Vera Farmiga
Lieutenant Worf: Hugh Jackman
Doctor Beverly Crusher: Gillian Anderson
Wesley Crusher: Michael Cera
Chief Miles O’Brien: Daniel Craig
Lieutenant Tasha Yar: Kerry Washington
Guinan: Frances McDormand
Q: Sam Rockwell
Barclay: Seth Rogen

Who would you cast (Feel free to reimagine the show as you like, too.)

Boldly reimagining credit sequences:
