This just in from Variety.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you: the new Montgomery Scott, Chief Engineer and third-in-command of the starship USS Enterprise.
I have no opinion on this.
Just thought I’d share that with you.
This’ll either be brilliant or painful beyond belief, I think. But at least he’ll have a better chance of getting the accent right.
Yeah, but do you want him to get the accent Scottish right or Scotty right?
There’s going to be tears either way.
Well, personally, I want him to get the accent right right. James Doohan’s attempt is one of the things I find perpetually cringe-worthy about the original Star Trek. Not, perhaps, as cringe-worthy as William Shatner’s… inappropriate… pauses, but cringe-worthy enough.
Could be a lot worse.
The Mister Scott on the New Voyages – lord alone knows where his accent comes from.
And now we know who get’s to be Kirk.
Who’s Chris Pine exactly?
He was the male lead in Just My Luck opposite Lindsay Lohan…
More to the point, he seems to have had a solid track record over the last few years without yet having a breakout role. IMDb.
