Zoe Saldana has been picked to be the new Uhura for the new Star Trek movie.

Saldana who has previously been in Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl and The Terminal (with Tom Hanks) already knows a thing or two about Vulcans.

Uhura’s casting follows casting for Scotty (with a scotsman), Chekov (with a real Russian), Spock (with a guy that has pointy ears). The secret script has apparently been completed and Star Trek XI should be in theatres for X-mas 2008.

Now if they could only cast Kirk…

But without any futher do..here is the future Uhura showing us what she knows about vulcans. Live Long and Prosper Zoe Saldana!

Star Trek XI Chekov To Be Played by Russian Actor August 30, 2007

First Scotty played by a Scotsman

Now Chekov being played by a Russian. I guess J.J.Abrams and his casting staff on Star Trek XI are aiming for real ethnic authenticity.

Anton Yelchin – a relative unknown in North America has been officially cast as Chekov…
I wonder if he’ll be able to find the ..’nucleal wessel…”

There are also active rumors circulating today on Uhura…nothing official yet though.

And the big question – who will be Kirk still remains.

James McAvoy has been named as the actor who will play NCC-1701 chief engineer Montgomery “Scotty” Scott..

The only movie that i’ve ever seen this dude in is the Chronicles of Narnia – though he was also in the Last King of Scotland.

Considering that Star Trek XI is set for an X-mas 2008 release, and i’d assume there is alot of special effects work to be done…i gotta say the producers are really cutting it close by only figuring out their cast now. At least the script is done..so maybe Abrams and co have already started on specing out the effects and are just going to do principal photgraphy last….(officially set to begin in November).

We don’t know who is playing Kirk yet – but we do know that Zachary Quinto is Spock, and Leonard Nimoy and possible Will Shatner will cameo.

Who Cares!

Star Trek XI is rapidly going from a highly anticipated film to a total disgrace rivalling even the mockery that was Star Trek Enterprise.

The film has already been scheduled for an X-mas 2008 release – the script ready to go since late June. Shatner in maybe??

speculation is now surrounding who will play Kirk and Spock. Personally I hope that two unknowns are chosen. Unknowns that are true fans and that will not bring any acting baggage with them.

Star Trek XI if it has any hope to boldy go and redefine Star Trek for a new era of movie goers needs new blood. Sure it would help if could get kids that look like Shatner and Nimoy (maybe they’ve got nephews?)…but I for one do not want to see the same guy that plays Jason Bourne play Kirk and I don’t want Zachary Quinto, who introduced himself to television audiences last year as the bad guy Sylar in NBC’s “Heroes,” to be Spock.

South Park’s Buck Rogers (aka: Cartman) January 23, 2007

One of the great SciFi shows of the 80’s (or not so great from today’s perspective) had to be Buck Rogers with Gil Gerard. Evidently South Park’s creators felt the same way and created an ‘homage’ to Buck Rogers in a recent two part episode where Cartman gets frozen and thenrescued 500 years into the future.

What I didn’t realize until I saw the video linked below was just how closely South Park matched up to the original Buck Rogers intro. The vid shows the two intros side by side, starting with the Buck Rogers audio, it then repeats with the South Park audio. You gotta see this…awwwweesome!
