Simon Pegg, co-writer and star of Hot Fuzz (fantastic), Shaun of the Dead (wonderful), and Spaced (best ever) has been cast as Scotty in the upcoming Star Trek motion picture reboot. Awesome!
I am unabashedly excited about this new Star Trek flick. The casting has all been interesting without being too close for comfort.
