Haters gonna hate


Man I don't know. The Arjun recast is still jarring for me and he is just a minor character. It's going to be really off when it's someone who had many lines of dialogue in just about every episode.

I agree there - I think that was a bad recast. So I'm really hoping the Alex recast would be better. I've watched some other shows with WAY better recasts, so I'm optimistic? Maybe haha

I think the US is dumb for not using Celsius

If they are going to do something, they need to just get rid of the character.

By the same logic, I can see recasting as the best route. I hope they choose well though.

This seems the most likely to me too.

I honestly think the Arjun recast is the worst I've ever seen. I don't mind if they recast and they look different (Game of Thrones for example) but recasting and completely changing their dynamic, and their chemistry, was awful. I think the entire political arc would've hit better if originally Arjun had been involved and had the same story.

Blending in like it ain't no thang

The Arjun recast was a complete gently caress up honestly. Arjun in the books is this quiet, contemplative college professor that serves as a rather hilarious foil to his foul-mouthed, outspoken and ambitious wife. He serves to show how she acts when she is with him vs when she is with everyone else, and that she has a much more vulnerable human side that is constantly hidden when in public. If that kind of actor had been cast, then the fact that she was starting to act aggressively with him too would have had more weight.

Just take some inspiration from Dark Matter and pull a Jace Corso/Derrick Moss.

e: hey if we're invoking Bezos, I'll also accept a fourth season of Dark Matter as an apology for a fifth season of Cas Anvar

While the Arjun recast couldn't have been more jarring, I still think recasting Alex has my preference. Have the character kind of low key hanging out in the back for a few episodes, then bring him into the forefront.

Daario recast actor probably has lots of free time these days and people already used to him showing up half way through.

Or have Scott Bakula quantum leap into Alex. He's pretty good in sci fi.

Trans Alex, she takes Space HRT and bing bang boom the Roci becomes less of a boys club ahead of the books. Get woke points, hires a (T)WOC for Amazon buxs, pisses off the worst fans, and best of all more gynophillic expanse fans.

Universe existed for 13.8 billion years before humans and will exist for trillions years more after the last human is forgotten.
So what was your problem again?

Chaos option: make Alex trans, replace with trans actress

Cyberpunk option: deepfake Alex in without Cas using Bezosbux

Little known fact, Claudia Black's first role on TV was playing a trans character for an episode, and I still remember watching it when it first aired.
