The New Enterprise Crew

Not personally a fan of Star Trek but I thought a number of you would like to know that Simon Pegg (Spaced; Shaun of the Dead; Hot Fuzz) has been cast in the role of Scotty for the new Star Trek Academy film which start filming in a few months time. The film explores the early days of the crew. As I mentioned a few months ago on here, the guy who plays Sylar in Heroes is going to be playing Spock.

Simon Pegg is Scotty! (Empire Movie News 12th October 2007)

I'm not so sure that he's a good choice for that role. he looks and sounds nothing like Scotty (even a young scotty). At least the Sylar chap does look like a young Spock.

I'm actually pretty pleased by that. Pegg's a really good actor (Run Fatboy Run is one of the year's best movies by a mile thanks largely to the dramatic heavy lifting he does), he's smart, he's articulate and crucially, he's not comic relief any more. Hopefully this means Scotty will have something to do.

Hopefully he can "get into character" without hamming it up too much. I have not seen him in a more serious role (not that Star Trek is all that serious) yet.

Re: hmmm.
He did a plausible American one in 'Big Nothing' so he can 'do' accents to a certain extent. No idea about Scottish though.

Don't you mean *Canadian* Scottish accent?
