(Trailer) Star Trek XI

Overall I enjoy the new Star Trek Trailer (and this is from someone who DOESN'T LIKE STAR TREK - but I've been hearing from other Trek-neutrals and anti-Trekkers that the new Trek film also has them intersted so I think it is going to be absolutely massive when it's released).

But one thing has been bothering me about it. Simon Pegg as Scotty I thought was a great idea but OMG his accent sucks. His accent in this trailer (and hopefully he'll be better in the overall film) reminded me overwhelmingly of another comedy character - Pippin from Lord of the Rings. Scotty sounds like Pippin.

Listen for yourself...
Star Trek XI

 
Generally speaking the trailer looks fab though.

I like Simon Peggs accent.
It's exciting.
Billy Boyd is Scottish.

It's just whether or not I can get over the Scotty-Pippin connection in my head when i watch the film now ;p

It's not like the original scotty's accent was Scottish anyway. Aye! ;)

true, but he has years to go to be the true scotty, an accent bread from repeated "she canna take any morrrre" (and the drinking that probably eventuated from it)

I can just tell I'm going to hate Kirk all over again.

It looks fucking ace.

But yes, Pippin.

Although as a Scot, it's not a bad accent. He sounds like a weegie, not a bad one at that.

but in that "mind meld" scene he looks like Sylar doing his brain nomming trick. His face is far too animated. Nimoy managed to keep his still and only raise the odd eyebrow.

As to Kirk, there can be only one.

I have to say that I've not been truly disappointed by J.J.Abrams yet so I'm hoping this will be a good reinvention of the franchise. I think it's a bit early to judge his accent based on just one snippet and I like Simon Pegg as an actor enough to think he's probably done a good enough job of it to make the character. I remember seeing him on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross and he absolutely refused to do a snippet of his accent for fear of getting sued. It was funny.

It IS Pippin.
And whats more, they will to9tally ignore the character of Tom Bombadil!
BASTARDS!
