Neither, they can't not play themselves in a role. Nicholson would be 
the most amazingly stupid choice for the part ever.  You wouldn't get an 
Aral, you would get NICHOLSON in every scene chewing away.

Random running through the top 200 male actors born 1950 to 1960 [to put 
Aral between 50 and 60] 5 9 to 6 feet tall.
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0499791/ Frederic Lehne. Good solid career as 
a TV actor. Good solid rugged decent looking face.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0618057/  Ulrich Muehe  Again, good solid 
history as a TV actor, rugged decent looks.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0191688/  Steven Culp A bit of a pretty boy 
but not too handsome, solid actor.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0225963/  John Diehl. Again rugged looks, 
interesting facial scar =)

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001409/  Tcheky Karyo -  rugged looks, solid 

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0751638/  James Russo. Going by looks again.

And a real contender, http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0002332/  Stephen Lang. 
Look at that bio pic, can't you see him facing off  with Bothari for 
that little sparring session?  Marching across a planet with Cordelia 
and an invalid in tow? Shoving Ges into the wall of the spaceship and 
threatening him?
