Some really intersting casting choices that J.J. is making for Star Trek

Bruce Greenwood is Capt. Christopher Pike

Rachel Nichols is unconfirmed but likely as Yeoman Janice Rand

and the arguably bizarre casting of Winona Ryder (36) as Spock's mother, Amanda


So I guess they are going to do some, hopefully, realistic aging on her.
Spock's mother??? Is this going to be a flashback to Spock's early childhood? I sure hope so.

Here's a recap of the current cast for the new Star Trek movie:

Shaping up to be pretty interesting.

We'll see how it goes.....

Zachary Quinto (Sylar on Heroes) is Spock

Chris Pine is James T Kirk

Karl Urban has supposedly been offered Dr. McCoy

Simon Pegg is Scotty

John Cho is Sulu

Anton Yelchin is Chekov

Zoe Saldana is Uhura

Eric Bana is the villain, Nero. Rumored to be a Romulan.

Leonard Nimoy will play an old Spock and it is possible that Shatner will play old Kirk.

Got this from AICN.
Zach Quinto - Sylar from Heroes - is playing Spock.
The rest are TBD but here’re some guidelines.

Feature Film

[JAMES KIRK] 23-29 Handsome,cocky self assured and earnest. Great physical condition. 6 ft or less

[LEONARD(BONES)MCOY] -28-32 Medic on the Enterprise. Smart, clever and a bit danger-loving. Dark hair, blue eyes.

[UHURA] 25ish -African American. Brilliant, beautiful, heroic and FUN!, Uhura is almost tom-boyish - as if she grew up in a houseful of brothers.

[SULU] 25-32 -Asian American male (preferably Japanese). Helmsman on the Enterprise. Extremely fit, capable and dedicated. A bit of a wildcat

[MONTGOMERY(SCOTTY) SCOTT] -28-32 a brilliant ship’s engineer. Must be able to do a flawless Scottish accent!

Here's some more Trek fan-filmage. Only two completed episodes so far.
These guys built the sets that the "Of Gods and Men" folks are using.
1st episode is not bad - although a bit convoluted :-)
They've improved a lot with episode two. Walter Koenig (Chekov) stars in that one.
