Its very late, or early depending on your point of veiw, but gavin and I end the night with tears streaming down our cheeks after watching the best documentary we have seen in these past few years. As trekkies, William Shatners 2011 film titled, "The Captains" spoke to us on an extreamly.deep level, during many parts of this film, we had tears in our eyes, and I will just say, it was the closing words, that truly, started the tears flowing. I hope, someday, we are able to meet some of these captains, mainly Patrick Stewart, William Shatner and Avery Brooks, before they go to the stars above. It would be a dream come true for me, to finally meet such inspirational actors, and individuals, as well as give our little girls the chance to see some of the people who inspired us to be who we are and more.
So many Star Trek actors do voice overs of documentaries. Got one on now with Avery Brooks. Jonathan Frakes is another familiar voice.
Saw a picture of Wil Wheaton and Patrick Stewart, looking as if they were in a firefight dressed in TNG era uniforms made me think of the following list of characters from DUNE, but cast from any Star Trek franchise... Wil Wheaton as Paul. Patrick Stewart as Gurney Halleck (duh). Gates McFadden as Lady Jessica. Chris Pine as Duncan Idaho. Benedict Cumberbatch as Piter DeVries Avery Brooks (in a fat suit) as Baron Harkonnen George Takei as Thufir Hawat Nana Visitor as Reverend Mother Mohiam. Michael Dorn as The Beast Rabban Cirroc Lofton as Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen John de Lancie as Emperor Shaddam IV Zoe Saldana as Chani Robert Beltran as Stilgar Jonathan Frakes as Duke Leto
Military Channel has showing programs about Biblical mysteries, hosted by Avery Brooks. I keep waiting to hear him say "Spen-SER!"
"You're like The Lord of the Rings of oils." - Brenna Joy McCullough to Robert Avery Brooks
I would hit on Avery Brooks so don't even feel ashamed about it.
having met most of the cast before seeing it, I'm glad, I'd be too star struck now. Especially Avery Brooks whose voice is so smooth
My father in law is watching The Bible's Greatest Secrets ... Narrated by Avery brooks!
yeah... She won't even let me touch her...
I went to see Gordon Parks' 1984 treatment of the Solomon Northup story which he called "Solomon Northup's Odyssey." It was part of a film festival on slavery yesterday at The Museum of the Moving Image.Love the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria; easy to get to from Manhattan, will go there again. This PBS docudrama gave a gentler interpretation of the narrative and we saw more of the everyday fears, frustrations, loves, and losses of the slave community as a whole. The women's issues surrounding Northup's saga were illuminated well. Avery Brooks was elegant, determined, and perhaps more three dimensional as Gordon's Solomon takes on a love interest that happens to also be the preferred mistress of Epps. The near-lynching of Northup was too grisly to be dealt with in 1980's tv. This film is equally relevant and should be used to show to younger audiences.
; 12 YEARS A SLAVE ; is a great film but NOT an original. The story of Solomon Northrup was filmed years ago starring AVERY BROOKS. Does anyone remember that movie ?
Re-read was through read by Avery Brooks. Both excellent, but I wish BARD would put up the older version.
I still wanna do a St. Louis photo shoot with you
Yesss for you I will 💛 maybe can come but she will sleep on the floor
I'm sad I didn't see you when you were in town that one whole night:( can you come back like really soon? I want a sleepover

My falsetto sounds like Avery Brooks and Keith David had a white baby together.
I got skunked, sort of! I got 4 of RBP's Spenser novels today including a rare copy of Promised Land, the story that was used for the TV pilot starring Robert Urich, Avery Brooks, & Barbara Stock. But one of the books The Professional is a paperback! GR I only collect hardcovers. Anyone interested in a free pb copy of The Professional and Small Vices? I've had Small Vices for a long time now and both are decent shape. Vices has had only one loving owner. Must go to a good home with mystery fans. Let me know. :)
I love Avery Brooks. Especially when he was in Spencer for Hire. What is he doing now?

Watching "Facets" and I never realized how creepy the music gets in the Sisko as Joran scene. Great combined with Avery Brooks's acting
After watching The Captains documentary by Shatner...Avery Brooks being my favorite out of all the captain actors was only solidified. To be fair I really like Shatner, Stewart, Brooks, Mulgrew, Bakula AND Pine. Sisko remains my favorite though. Fun video.
So, found a new show I like. The BBC's "Luther". I'll start out by saying that I've always liked Idris Alba in whatever I've seen him in. He reminds me of Avery Brooks. But this show definitely beats a lot of American police dramas for sheer twistedness. For a country that wags its finger at the US for all our violent imagery in media, this show breaks the mold. Even Criminal Minds hasn't come up with criminals this twisted.
Not to downplay Avery Brooks, I love him as Sisko, I just ALSO want to see Idris Elba as Sisko
"12 Years A Slave" Was First Produced in 1984 - Starred Avery Brooks and Was First Directed by Gordon Parks?

I just watched "12 Years a Slave" a couple of days ago. It is a great film that didn't disappoint. While researching interviews about the film on You Tube primarily to satisfy my "Lupita fetish" I was shocked to find out that this is the second film based on Solomon Northrop's book. The late great Gordon Parks directed a film in 1984 starring Avery Brooks entitled "Solomon Northrop's Odyssey".

Avery Brooks has such a distinctive cadence and lilt to his voice when he plays Sisko. It's really interesting.
Remind me to remind you of the Avery Brooks cycle re: DS9.
Thing I didn't know before last night: Gordon Parks directed the TV version of 12 Years a Slave & Avery Brooks played Solomon Northup in '84
I just bought a Godsmack Jumper. Right onnn
Just found and bought my Miley shirt. Done and done.
yep Seven was hot. I actually named my son after Avery Brooks aka Commander Sisko.

I hadn't realised 12 Years A Slave is a remake. It was first a film for US TV in 1984 starring Avery Brooks.
Avery Brooks was first actor to play Solomon Northup in film based on
Yes good article. When do we get to meet Gates hubby? Suggest Ernie Hudson or Avery Brooks.
Calm your *** Just one *** Leave the other one crazy and out of control. Thats your party ***
Avery Brooks is one of the most uncharismatic actors ever to grace Star Trek franchise. Not saying he's bad.
I do the same thing for the same reason. Avery Brooks is the actor doing the IBM commercial.

When I watch Brooklyn Nine Nine why is my mind turning it into an updated Spenser for Hire? Terry Crews would make a great Avery Brooks
I want a Spenser reboot with Avery Brooks reprising his role as Hawk
Avery Brooks did the movie 12years a slave in the 80s.
So, my friends and I have been having a great time recasting Star Wars with Star Trek characters. It's been fun! The idea occurred to me as I imagined Avery Brooks performing Mace Windu's part. Who would you choose to fill certain roles? I've been basing my choices on matching personalities and/or what character would feel right. So far my list is... Guinan as Yoda (hundreds of years old, wise, hidden Q-thwarting powers) Wesley Crusher as Luke Skywalkwer (don't hate, it works!) Sisko as Mace Windu Kira as Leia Organa (feisty rebel princess who would rather fight than be diplomatic) I feel pretty good about those so far. What are your thoughts and ideas? Spill!
Avery better like all her new stuff

There's No Place for Racism in the Final Frontier: Star Trek's Brilliant Episode on Discrimination Posted by Ross Pomeroy January 17, 2014   Star Trek has ever been a beacon for equality. In the sci-fi show's bold vision for a space-faring future, mankind is united. All of Earth's genders and races step out into the vastness of space together.   When the original series first aired back in 1966, such a future was difficult to grasp. Though the Civil Rights Movement opened a portal to equality through which our country walked, not everyone was transported. Individual minds are not as easily changed as laws. No doubt many were uncomfortable when an African American actress, the stunning and intelligent Nichelle Nichols, appeared on screen, not as a futuristic maid, but as Lieutenant Nyota* Uhura. No doubt even more people were irked when she and William Shatner, better known as Captain James T. Kirk, shared what's popularly considered as the first interracial kiss on television.   Over Star Trek's  ...
Spent MLK watching both 12 years a slave directed by Steve Mcqueen and the original directed by Gordon Parks featuring the brilliant Avery Brooks. Each version displays the horror of slavery and what this country produced. As we celebrate MLK let's hope we dont have amnesia and remember those that paved the way for justice. As MLK said, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere". There are brothers and sisters in our country that need our solidarity.
Who remembers that "Twelve Years a Slave" was orginally shot in Savannah. The book written by Soloman Northup and titled "The Oddosey Of Soloman Northup" was filmed in 1984 staring Avery Brooks, John Saxon had a minor role. Several locations were used including Oatland Island, the dock at the old Wilmington Island Hotel, a home on Isle of Hope and a local cemetery.The director was Gordon Parks, always wearing his red beret and always a pure gentleman. The medical services were provided by a staff of one, yours truly
Asha, Jessica, Saul, Tony Medina. All yall set that stage verbally on fire today for Baraka. Bluiett and Avery Brooks flipping Round Midnight like it was a page out the Kama Sutra up in Craig Harris slow drag arrangement--baaad. But what Savion Glover did with his feet was like our marching orders for Armageddon. Then came Ras. Like a brother said to me on the way out the Hall,''All those people thought they had finally got rid of Amiri, he didn't even give em time to catch a breath before he came back through his son.''
An audio book I'm about to listen to is narrated by Avery Brooks! Ee!!
Midnight. Angel wakes up and asks me a question. "In Deep Space 9, Avery Brooks' character, Captain Sisko...what was his first name?" The transformation is nearly complete.
I have deep respect and regard for this most gifted actress and as a person. I have admired her work as far back as I can recall ( as the love interest on "Hawk" with Avery Brooks). Yet while I hold performances in high esteem, and will always be her and Mr. Vance's fan, I find it very difficult to celebrate anyone of color who accepts this particular honor while the great Ethel Waters has none. If I had the money I'd put it up myself. Of course, Miss Waters will be remembered by somebody "next month. . ."

Thank You to everyone that was concerned and left messages. I didn't get the flu or Virus as bad as my friend Bobby did. But I have certainly had it just a little longer. MAN !!! Sinus Headaches and then you can't breathe. Take meds and it drops to your chest, where you can't breathe, but you don't have the headaches… I lost my voice for few days - ( You should have called me then, I was as squeaky as a doggie toy ) Then when my voice started to come back, I sound like the Actor Avery Brooks, from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine… Deep Gravely Voice. I am starting to feel better. Hopefully it's going away now.

King: A Countdown to the Holiday, a 1-minute program series airing this week, is an intimate portrait of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. through a combination of actualities, music and host comments. Each of the fifteen 60 second vignettes, hosted by the late Avery Brooks, reveals a facet of Dr. King’s character and beliefs as we listen to excerpts from his speeches and comments from those who knew and loved him best. This award-winning series is a perfect prelude to the celebration of one of our nation’s finest leaders.
That show is why I am a "Private Investor" now...My man Avery Brooks...played the *** out of that part!
William Shatner puts together a miniseries called "The Captains" in which he interviews all the actors who played Star Trek captains. Episode one is him and Avery Brooks, who is incomprehensible to the point of sounding absolutely out of his mind.
So I just found out that the actor of one of my favorite TV shows as a kid - A Man called Hawk (starring Avery Brooks) [spin-off of Spenser for Hire] was none other than Commander Benjamin Sisko of Star Trek Deep Space Nine. (yes. yes, Aaron McComb - I know you already knew, you're bad *** But How often do you learn somethin cool like this?~!?
The top 5 awesome things I did this year: 5. Planned, executed, and did not spoil a surprise party. 4. Actually managed to start a campfire with no lighter fluid and make s'mores. 3. Met William Shatner, Michael Dorn, Avery Brooks, Gates McFadden, Bruce Boxleitner, and J. Michael Straczynski at sci-fi conventions. 2. Began construction on a 5 foot long model of Babylon 5, and a 3 square foot castle for Tara. 1. Actually went on vacation for the first time in 5 years. Tara Hill and I had our 5-year anniversary trip to Washington. Farewell, 2013! Greetings, 2014!
Randomly, I came about the inspiration to discuss some of my favorite movie characters that I’ve encountered in my journey into film. This list is subjective and only contained, so far, to the movies that I own. As I ponder more on it, it might change. Feel free to comment on my choices for favorite movie characters or talk about your own. (I will provide clips in the comment section if applicable.) They are, in my opinion, performances/characters for which the film would not be the same without… • Pinky (Clifton Powell, ‘Next Friday’) - Actually, David Bowie’s “Fame” came across my song-list and I remembered the scene where we were first introduced to Pinky which provided the inspiration for this post. Makes me laugh every time, great character! • Cisco (Lou Diamond Philips, ‘The Big Hit)- I’ve seen this movie a dozen times and still can’t tell if it’s more comedy or more drama. Mark Wahlberg is definitely comedy, Avery Brooks is definitely drama. It’s LDP’s performan ...
Asking $15. Has voice acting of William Shattner, Patric Stewart, Avery Brooks, Kate Mulgrow, and Scott Bakula! Works great!
It feels a little trivial given the sheer volume of interesting material and stories in Spike Lee's book about making Malcolm X, but I perked up a bit when he revealed that the short list for West Indian Archie, before Delroy Lindo was cast, included Sam Jackson, the original choice, and AVERY BROOKS, who I did not realize was a professor at Rutgers at least at that time. Avery Brooks! I've always wondered why he never worked with Spike, and now I want his West Indian Archie damnit!

That was probably the best episode of any Star Trek show. Avery Brooks though. I love Avery Brooks.

The answer to the question "which Trek actor has the best album?" Is also Avery Brooks.
Wouldn't be so bad if not for Avery Brooks' acting, which even his biggest fans can't defend in that episode.
That interval on Deep Space Nine when they decided Sisko should have a beard but Avery Brooks hadn’t grown it yet so they glued on a fake
On another DS9 kick. Made better by the knowledge that Avery Brooks is completely insane.

I think my Tumblr post with that excerpt from my interview with Avery Brooks has the most notes of any original post I've done.
Hard to picure anyone but Avery Brooks as Sisko. He owned that role.

When you see Avery Brooks, be sure to rave about Locusts! for me.
Avery Brooks is the weirdest actor to ever headline a TV show. Such bizarre (and totally engrossing) acting.
"That is a beneficent fiction, born out of the imagination of how we can be." - Avery Brooks
Avery Brooks, way to deep for William Shatner to interview properly.

Either Jason Momoa's had a funny turn or that's actually (And what's up with Amanda Tapping and Avery Brooks?)
Avery Brooks, nice. DS-9 had best opening music. I can still hear the French horns climbing the scales.
Yeah, it's not great. I'll still be happy with Avery Brooks and Alex Siddig and so on, but Nicole DeBoer would've been ace...
Watched "The Captains"... Wow. Avery Brooks is out there. Shatner is pushy. Sir Stewart is awesome. Mulgrew is hard working. Baccula is rad.
The dude has style! Gotta love the DS9 era uniforms with that turtleneck thing. Different Avery Brooks though ;)
Who did they pick up? HOWARD? You know Avery Brooks is a free agent. As well as Brandon Jennings. Knicks should look into starting pt,guard.
When actor Avery Brooks starts talking I want him to immediately stop talking.
Awww, poor you. Doing research for Shipwreck Trek? I've just watched DS9: Through The Looking Glass. Avery Brooks.
Kate Mulgrew and William Shatner last year, Patrick Stewart this year. Need an Avery Brooks and Scott Bakula show.
Right? Avery. Brooks'. singing. voice. (Incidentally, have you seen The Captains, wherein he terrorizes Shatner with a piano?)
Avery Brooks would make an amazing King of the King. But yeah the days to play T'Challa for him have passed.
Wish Avery Brooks were younger to maybe play Black Panther (re: Love Vin D, but he's not it.
Holy crap. All my friends are getting skinnier and I'm getting fatter. I'm the Anti-Avery Brooks.
I had no clue there was a followup to the first Captains documentary. What songs does Avery Brooks hum along to in this one?
Softball Rampage - Free Return Shipping
I think Llanview needs a little "order in the court" & Judge Avery Brooks should pay a visit,played by :)
Holy crap. Avery Brooks is a freaking AMAZING actor.
I would give a lot to see Avery Brooks acting with Ian MacShane and Powers Boothe.
It would be tough to pick my favorite captain. I love William Shatner's Kirk, Avery Brooks' Sisko, Patrick Stewart's Picard - even Kate Mulgrew's Janeway grew on me. I never got into Star Trek: Enterprise so can't comment much on Scott Bakula's Archer.
I was inspired by Avery Brooks, Tony Todd, and Eddie Kendricks.
Avery Brooks, Richard D Anderson and Jim Buther are all going to be at Dragon Con...Man I would love to add those three to my autograhics. Then you also have the green ranger, William Shanter, Adrian Paul and on top of that get another chance to see Cruxshadows play. If only it was not so much money..ag

Following the recommendation of Eric Samuelsen, Melissa and I ended up watching The Captains tonight. What can you say? William Shatner manages--both through obvious staging, as well as just through his own odd mannerisms and words--to make the entire world a stage, for and of himself. Some of the actors he speaks with knowingly play along (Patrick Stewart), some play their own game (Avery Brooks), some resist his script (Kate Mulgrew), and some just seem genuinely pleased to be in the Shat's orbit (Scott Bakula). Anyway you slice it, the result is a charming, sweet-smelling slice of pop culture ham.
I watched the William Shatner directed documentary "The Captains" last night and while it started out pretty slow it ended up very fascinating. Avery Brooks came off as a total nutcase and that was weird to see but what was most interesting was the very real warmth and developed friendship between Patrick Stewart and Shatner. It was fascinating watching them talk as candidly to each other as they did. The back and forth between Shatner and Chris Pine was also pretty amusing.
:: I was unable to post at the Star Trek convention on Sunday, so, here's a quick recap of the day. On Sunday, most of the events we attended were Q&A sessions hosted by various notable Trek personalities. We sat in and listened to: LeVar Burton (TNG: Geordi LaForge), Brent Spiner (TNG: Data), Jonathan Frakes (TNG: Commander Will Riker), Cirroc Lofton (DS9: Jake Sisko), Avery Brooks (DS9: Captain Benjamin Sisko), and part of the session by Richard Arnold (former official archivist for Star Trek productions). All of the sessions were fascinating, humorous and, at times, wonderfully philosophical. Kelli and I also had our personal photo with LeVar Burton (Geordi LaForge) personally autographed by LeVar himself. Good guy. I really like him. After exploring the Star Trek vendors a bit (and buying a print of some Star Trek artwork), and spending a little time with some wonderful fellow Star Trek fans, Kelli and I left Chicago, and returned home. Both of us were exhausted. So exhausted, in fact, that I ended up ...
