JJ Abrams, the creator of Lost and Heroes, is also the driving force between a new reboot of the Star Trek franchise starring the original Enterprise crew during their first missions. All well and good, and I’d rather see JJ Abrams tackle Trek than Rick “yeah, I’ve been out of ideas since the mid-90’s” Berman, but apparently he’s cast Simon “Shaun of the Dead” Pegg as Scotty. Pegg has appeared in Doctor Who and I have no doubt of his genre bona fides….but Scotty? Something about that just doesn’t work for me.
WTF? Simon Pegg as Scotty?
