Trek cast could be...

02.27.2007

So it turns out JJ Abrams isn't leaving STAR TREK after all... Gotta give credit to Latino Review for just coming out and being man enough to admit they were wrong. Hey bum information happens. It's happened to me, them, AICN, pretty much everyone who does this for a living. But we move on. Speaking of moving on, now that it's officialy that Abrams is directing STAR TREK XI, we can officially start talking about casting. IGN's Stax is reporting that there are already three names on Paramount's wish list. Starting the list off is Matt Damon who was previously rumored to be a young James T. Kirk. Also on the list for Spock and Bones? Well you'll just have to head to IGN Movies to find out. I dig the choices but I'd give Abrams and Paramount all the credit in the world if they were able to secure this cast. I still think Zachary Quinto, currently starring on NBC's "Heroes" would make a great Spock, but that's just me.

Star Trek XI

You had me when you said there was going to be a Star Trek XI, you had me when you said Matt Damon was going to be a young James T. Kirk, what more do you need.
Sure beats my idea to cast David Schwimmer as the Vulcan, but for a title nothing can beat Star Trek XI: Legends.

Forgive me, Star Trek XI. Star Trek IX still sucked, though. So did X. Can someone explain why they're making XI?
Besides money.

Thank you, maf, for the rebriefing. Marcus or Michaels, she has to be hot, no? As far as timing, why Academy days anyway? Wouldn't a competition b/w Kirk and Pike for the first Enterprise assignment be dare I say, logical. That could establish all the primary characters, with room for the first Vulcan officer in S-fleet, etc. etc.
How about Star Trek IX: The thing that wouldn't die.

@stock - It's Carol Marcus, not Michaels. Obviously you're not a Trek nut and seen Star Trek II a million times ;)

Not Sylar

I'm not sure I see the Zach "Sylar" Quinto thing as Spock...not tall, lanky and "elf like" enough.

Would be nice to see no names cast. Damon just doesn't give off a "young Shatner" feel to me at all.

How about:
"Star Trek: Sucking the last bit of life out of an already dead franchise"

Is it lost on everybody else that Matt Damon is already older than Shatner was when he started doing Star Trek? Doesn't that make it tough for him to play Kirk in his academy days?

Subtitle: Star Trek: Genesis. That way you can bring in a little hottie for Kirk by name of Carol Michaels.

Unknowns

Except for Sinise, I'd say go for unknowns. Its a little too cute to have Damon as Kirk, and the other guy, (feh). Spock should be the focus as he's torn by a human desire for adventure and his father's(Nimoy himself perhaps?) strong mistrust of Starfleet and Spock's "friends."

I would love, Damon, Sinise, Kim, and McAvoy in all those roles, but I'm not liking Brody as Spock. Much rather have Zachary Quinto. Great idea Mike!

Sinise!!

Gary Sinise would be PERFECT for Bones! They need to get that done. Hopefully we will finally have a ST movie that doesn't suck ass. Perhaps it should be called Star Trek: before it sucked ass.

I believe it will be called: Star Trek: The Degrassi Years. Isn't The Shat Canadian after all?

Enterprise

But it's been done... How about "Oh, after two generations of marijuana smoking, we get it and think we can make a buck off it..
