Pegg/Cho Trek

10.12.2007
100%
Two new bits of casting for you STAR TREK fans today; Simon Pegg (HOT FUZZ) has signed on to play 'Scotty', the Starship Enterprise's chief mechanic, while John Cho (HAROLD AND KUMAR, or the MILF kid) is onboard to play Sulu, the helmsman. I never really expected - with JJ Abrams in charge - that this film would get another othan a dynamite cast, but I thus far haven't heard anything about this movie that I don't like. Eric Bana's recent casting as the film's villain, Nero, is my favourite of the bag, but Pegg and Cho are great too. Cho's next project is going to be the Oscar magnet and early contender for greatest movie ever made in the history of the world by humans, HAROLD AND KUMAR 2, while Pegg can be seen in David Schwimmer's directorial debut RUN, FATBOY, RUN. All that remains now is to see who's gonna land that Kirk role!
Extra Tidbit: Cho is the lead singer of a band called 'Left of Zed'.

Run Fatboy, Run ain't Schwimmer's directorial debut. It Since You've Been Gone back in 1998. Check your stuff, man.

interesting

The Trek franchise needs a real shot in the arm. I hope it goes on a little "grittier" direction, while still having a classic Trek-ish tone at it's base.

Its fact

Pegg's agent just says they've got to dot the i's and cross the t's at Paramount's end.

As long as he can do a decent Scots accent, which I'm sure he can... He could be a brilliant Scotty... He can play straight as well as the light relief that Scotty occasionally brought to the series. So far, the casting has been really good. I wonder how many films these deals cover?

Dear God this bettter be 100% real b/c thinking Pegg is involved and having the rug pulled from me would be disastous.
