Sallah Leaving Indy's side! (Updated Sept 6, 1999 8:57 am PST) - Rhys-Davies to be Gimli
The situation seems plausible enough and the conversation brief enough (heck, I even met Rene Auberjonois--Odo from Star Trek: DS9--at L.A.X. once), .
Honestly though, I'm having a really difficult time picturing Rhys-Davies as Gimli--too much jolly, not enough grit. Plus, his girth is a bit too expansive...
Harry over at Ain't it Cool News has Confirmed that John Rhys-Davies will be playing Gimli. I personally think that he can pull this off. I have seen several episodes Sliders and I think he did a great job in them. I've also loved him as Sallah in the Indy movies. I think this is another good casting choice!
