Default Who Should Play Cain?

With all of the talk of Cain surfacing on the new show the question is who should play the part? My top choice would be Michael O'Hare.

O'Hare would be OK, but he doesn't strike me as being flamoyant enough (at least, he wasn't as Sinclair). If nothing else, Cain came across as flamboyant in LL.

We need an actor who can play someone as larger than life, the way Lloyd Bridges did. O'Hare's got a good look, but can he do that?

Patrick Stewart (if he wasn't so identified with ST:TNG) might be a good choice (he can be flamboyant). James Garner, Mandy Patinkin, (I'm just taking names off the top of my head here), even somebody like James Caan, although he might lack the physicality of a Lloyd Bridges.

How about one of the Bridges boys? I don't like either of them, but if they buffed up a little.....

I am

Some names that come to mind:

Bill Shatner - (similar to Dawg's assessment of Patrick Stewart, he is probably forever typecast as Captain Kirk).

Harrison Ford
Michael Ironside
Robert Conrad - (before his recent difficulties)

IMO, these 4 men would possess the same 'stage presence' as did Lloyd Bridges.

Once again, like Dawg, these are names off the top of my head.


Come on folks, got any more ideas??
