Submission + - Wesley Snipes Was Almost Geordi La Forge

jbuck writes: "Wesley Snipes Was Almost Geordi La Forge, and Other Star Trek: TNG Casting Fun. In a strong argument for the existence of alternate realities, according to this purported 1987 Star Trek: The Next Generation casting sheet Wesley Snipes was once a front-runner to play Geordi La Forge.

From the article: "The above actors will be brought in to read for Gene Roddenberry starting next week however, Patrick Bauchau did come in and read for Gene today for the Role of "Picard". His reading was well recieved; He and Partick Stewart seem to be favorites for the role of "Picard"...

UPDATE: As for authenticity, LeVar Burton himself (!) confirms:"
