It’s no secret that Conan O’Brien is brilliant at impersonations. OK, he’s really good at superimposing his face and mouth (or body, in the case of the following YouTube clip) on a celebrity and making them say and do funny stuff. Is it just us or is he a dead ringer for the commander of the U.S.S. Enterprise, Captain Kirk? Perhaps Conan should be beamed up into the next Star Trek movie.
If you slapped some pointed ears on The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons and pumped him full of green blood, he could be Mr. Spock’s twin. Both Spock and Parson’s Sheldon are brainiacs who make everyone around them feel like they’re still using sticks and rocks to do math problems. No starship should be without a curiously eared genius.
What a striking resemblance! Is it the hair? The round face? Or is it the can-do spirit both these men possess that accounts for the similarity? Scotty is the irrefutable HTIC (Head Trekkie in Charge) of the U.S.S. Enterprise and The Donald is the HDICE (Head Dude in Charge of Everything) — or so he thinks.
Not only do Dr. McCoy and Gary Sinise look as if they're twins separated at birth, but Dr. McCoy is the U.S.S. Enterprise’s chief doc and Gary Sinise played a doctor in The Forgotten! Yeah, so Gary played a psychiatrist, but playing a medical doctor and surgeon can’t be much of a stretch from there.
Chekov, who started out as the U.S.S. Enterprise’s chief navigator, bears a bold likeness to Jane Fonda. The proud Russian officer was known for being a bit of a hothead in his youth, and Fonda too has been very outspoken over the years. All Fonda would need is a Sam Donaldson-like wig and she’d be a dead ringer.
Wow, it’s as if Ken Jeong was genetically engineered to play the role of Sulu! Naturally when we think of Ken Jeong, we think of him as Mr. Chow, the kidnapper in The Hangover. We can hardly imagine Sulu shouting “Toodle-oo, mother f***ers!" at the top of his lungs. But if we're going on looks alone, Sulu and Mr. Chow are practically interchangeable.
How much did we want to be the ultra-cool, Swahili-speaking Uhura when we were kids? She got to wear that sassy uniform and those killer boots, and she got to play with a control panel all day. Then she got to go on various adventures like capturing humpback whales to save Earth! If Jackee shares our childhood desire to be Uhura, she could easily be cast as Uhura’s double — they're the spitting image of each other.
