Simon Pegg to play Scotty - Awesome.

"Brit thespo Simon Pegg, who's previously entertained the crowds in Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, will play a young Scotty in the next celluloid Star Trek outing, Reuters reports.

Pegg joins Zoe Saldana as Uhura, Anton Yelchin as Chekov, John Cho as Sulu and Zachary Quinto as Spock in the film which reportedly, and logically, "chronicles the early days of the Enterprise crew". Leonard Nimoy will also put in an appearance, while Eric Bana signed up this week as the movie's villain, Nero."

If they really have to recast it, and they do because the real poor old Scotty is long since passed into the nether, then I really can't think of anyone better to take the role. Pegg must be jizzing in his pants at the thought. Well done that man. Lets just hope the film isn't a big pile of wank; because that will surely be upsetting, not only for me but for fans like Pegg too.

Time'll tell.
