I had hoped he would have instead have been in the next movie.
This makes little sense why they hired Rainn Wilson. Discovery takes place prior to TOS so Mudd would be younger. Yet Wilson is 51. Roger C. Carmel died in 1986 at 54. Carmel would have been about 35 to 36 when he played Mudd.
Poor casting choice. A actor mid 20s should have been cast.
