A cyberspace journal about my experiences as an NYU film school grad student, reviews of current and classic films, film and TV news, and the rants and raves of an admitted (and unapologetic) film snob.

Continuing Trek Casting News

Now that we know who will be manning the starship Enterprise bridge, it's high time we find out who else will be popping up in the new Star Trek movie, directed by LOST's J.J. Abrams, which, incidentally, began principle photography this week, just ahead of the writer's strike.

Earlier, it was announced that Eric Bana would appear as a bad guy named, Nero.

Now, it's confirmed that Alias' Rachel Nichols is aboard for a as of yet undisclosed role...

...Bruce Greenwood (an actor I've always liked) is set to play Capt. Christopher Pike, who, as the mythology tells us, commanded the Enterprise before Kirk, and was the main character of the first failed Trek pilot...

...and Winona Ryder will appear as Spock's mother, Amanda.

Winona has always had cleavage; if anything, I've been hearing complaints that she's been losing it lately.
