    Sense8 Cast in a Babylon 5 Reboot – The Game

    This is a little game for those of us whom have seen both Babylon 5 and Sense8, but feel free to make choices even if you have no idea who these characters are. LOL

    I am going to use non-gender specific labels for each character. Pick which of these you feel would work best in each role. (I’m not going to lie – there are certain people I feel are perfect for these roles. They are usually the first name listed if I feel that is true. And, yes, it will become obvious who some of my favorites are, but I also took into consideration a desire to see them tackle the role and if I thought they could pull the role off. I also tried to think outside the box on most of them.)

    (I think Terrence Mann is an interesting choice as an older and more experienced twist on Ivanova.)

    (I know Mumbi Maina wasn’t in the show that much, but I just love her. I did add many secondary characters because I loved what they did in Sense8 so much.)

    (I really didn’t even want to mention Ki-Chan Lee and Chichi Seii until I got to Bester, but as I was thinking about the characters I realized there were other interesting places to plug in those two actors. Chichi Seii just made me think of mother, which led me to think of the Psi Corps and what a great Bester she would be. As we saw in Sense8, Ki-Chan Lee just played evil so well that it would be great to put him in Bester’s place. Unfortunately, in the case of Lee and many of the actors, I don’t know if their age would sell as some of these characters. Age aside I still think these are interesting choices.)

    AND PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ADD YOUR OWN CHOICES TO THE LISTS.

    This is cool.

    I'd have my reservations about Doona Bae in a lead role with a lot of dialogue. I think she's ace, but even in the finale I struggled to understand some of her lines as a native English speaker. She'd need some intensive dialogue training, or deliver it in her native tongue.

    TBH, I'd love to see Terrence Mann as Sinclair! Or Naveen Andrews as a second choice.

    I have a few other thoughts on those that would fit certain roles well:

    Londo - Alfonso Herrera - He has the poise and depth to play the role.
    Vir - Miguel Angel Silvestre - He has that lightness about him, and I think he could carry a bumbling, yet conscientious character well.

    Delenn - Daryl Hannah, can't think of anyone else on the cast with the required acting chops.

    Bester - Naveen Andrews, I think he could do a great bad guy.

    Garibaldi - Max Riemelt

    I'm not too inspired by the rest of the cast in this context.

      I have to admit I am kind of surprised this didn't attract more responses.
