Michael Dorn really needs to shut up about Worf on Twitter.

There's no shortage of old, fat men who speak Klingon. They can easily hire someone else. They can call him "Work" instead.

You sure Worf isn't part Ferengi? Maybe Quark taught him the Rules of Acquisition?

Michael Dorn, according to a rumour, refused to appear in Star Trek: Discovery because of a pay issue

what, they were asking him to pay too much to be in it?

Nope.

CBS has already broke even, maybe even turned a profit on it because of overseas sales. Whatever fools sign up for US access is just gravy.

How would that even work? Would he be the father or grandfather of the character he played in Star Trek VI, who was himself the father or grandfather of Worf (I don't remember how they justified it, who gives a shiat)? Is that necessary?

The strangest plot point of BTTF is that Marty's mother doesn't like to talk about the time she tried to f*ck the guy that looks identical to her own son in 1955.

It wasnt just him.  Klingons routinely got their asses kicked by other species including humans in hand to hand combat.  They kind of sucked for being the Spartans of the galaxy.

Brent Spiner played a Soong on Enterprise who was a geneticist.   They were some really good episodes which include Uncle Phil as a Klingon and explain smooth headed Klingons.  It was work.

I'm genuinely surprised that nobody actually seems to agree with Dorn here.  From TFA:

"...they had offered him less than 1 percent of what he made in his last contract as Worf."

Being offered less than 1% of your previous appearance contract pretty much is an insulting offer, and remember, in the entertainment industry, once you agree to do stuff for a certain amount of money, that will affect the offers you get in the future (your "going rate").**  If this claim is true, he'd have to be completely insane to take that offer, because it'll torpedo his going rate for future gigs.

**There are times you can appear for under your going rate and not hurt your future prospects, but it's done under specific conditions and usually really blatantly pointed out you're doing it for a friend or for charity or something.  ST:D falls under none of the usual conditions for undercutting your own going rate.

I started to write out a whole thing about how that would at least make sense, since Soong built Data to look like him. Then I realized, since I hadn't seen any of Enterprise, that it sounded, based on your description, like he played a Soong different than the one that built Data. Is that true?

The waters are already muddy with actors returning in different roles like Lenard and Combs (among others). Hell, Diana Muldaur played 2 different characters on TOS, and then came back to be Dr. Pulaski on TNG.

I'm slowly talking myself into being OK with the concept. Ultimately it's moot, because he's not doing it anyway.

He actually does a lot of voice work, and has been for a while.

As for a previous poster implying that he was fat, he is actually quite thin an eats very healthy.

Dorn was at our comic book convention a couple of years back. I didn't go up to speak to him but I watched the panel from a distance and he came across as a total douchebag. He sat there the entire time with his earphones on, even when fans were talking to him and barely acknowledged them (no eye contact, etc).

The first movie was set in 1985 and with Marty as a high school student, who at most is 18 or 19 years old, putting his birth back around 1967.  For Marty to be the son of Calvin Klein, he would have been born around 1956 and about 29 years old AND in high school.

No.  Lorraine has to deal with the fact that as her son, by George, got older and older, he grew into the guy she tried to fark when she was in high school...

2017-04-15 12:17:40 PM  
He's probably also grumpy they didn't go with his Old Man Captain Worf series pitch. Eh, I don't blame him. No idea if he's a dick in person. I rather stupidly missed the Megacon a few years back where they got most of the TNG cast to show up. My friend says the panel with everyone was pretty damn good.

Ok.  Let's say his last contract was for a cool million, be it for a film or a season of television.  That would mean they offered him less than $10k to do Discovery. Do you honestly believe that was ever the case? Feel free to consult SAG-AFTRA rates for reference.
