Riddle me intrigued:
Paramount Pictures is beaming up Simon Pegg to play Scotty in J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek."
Pegg joins Eric Bana, Anton Yelchin, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana and Leonard Nimoy in the latest bigscreen incarnation of the classic TV series.
I'm not so sure I know how to feel about it. This movie is shaping up to be so weird. I mean...the Star Trek gang in their Starfleet days? This kind of sounds like a fake movie that would have been pitched in The Player.
Frankly, though, I adore Simon Pegg, and I'll see him in almost anything (ALMOST meaning I couldn't handle two hours of Tom Cruise and steered clear of M:I 3). He's funny, adorable, and 'take a look at his arse'.***
Plus, Eric Bana is the villain, and there's always the possibility he'll capture and enslave Scotty at some point.
Don't give me that look! You know that would be amazing.
