Shaun and Harold Join TREK

I'm not a big STAR TREK fan by any means. I watched the original show on occasion and liked a couple of the movies (especially KHAN) but that's about it. So I wasn't waiting with bated breath to find out who was going to play the young crew members in JJ Abrams' upcoming reboot of the series. Well, I don't know who the living hell Chris Pine (Kirk) is but I was glad to see SHAUN OF THE DEAD/HOT FUZZ star Simon Pegg signed on to play Scotty and John Cho of HAROLD AND KUMAR fame on board to play Sulu.

Speaking of HAROLD AND KUMAR, the teaser trailer for H&K2 is finally on-line...

My interest in this project spiked as soon as I heard the Simon Pegg news. Can you honestly think of anything better than that? I don't know if it's official or not, and I can't remember his name off the top of my head but the guy who plays Sylar on Heroes is, allegedly, Spock, which would be another perfect piece of casting news. Between this and his kaiju movie, JJ Abrams is on fire!

Yep, Zachary Quinto (I think that's his name) is playing Spock. Seems like good casting to me. I'm surprised they didn't go for a bigger name for Kirk but it's such an iconic role that might have caused some people to shy away.
