If you were still curious about how the characters will be portrayed by the updated cast in Star Trek, Simon Pegg has surfaced to discuss the lot of them.

Star Trek Characters

The good people at TrekMovie have caught up with Simon Pegg to not only discuss how he landed the role of Scotty, but his fellow trek actors.

[Zachary Quinto & Chris Pine]
Zach Quinto, who does Spock, is phenomenally like… I mean, he looks like Leonard Nimoy. On set, out of the corner of your eye, you’d think it was Leonard, it was really weird. And Chris [Pine], who’s Kirk, has just got that fantastic sort of swagger, you know, that Shatner had and it’s… I think it’s going to be right, I’m so excited about it.

After covering a few other actors, Pegg goes on to discuss the odd numberered Trek movie curse...

[Leonard Nimoy]
It is quite like the snake eating itself. I think when we started making references to Spaced in Shaun of the Dead that’s was the most crystal moment of self indulgence ever. In Spaced there is a line where Tim says something about every odd number Star Trek movie being shit which is a huge irony considering I’m starring in Star Trek 11. So it is funny how those things come back to haunt you. Obviously the rule doesn’t apply anymore [laughs].

Star Trek opens to theaters on May 8, 2009.
