Winona Ryder and Bruce Greenwood Join Star Trek 11

Two more cast additions to J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek 11: Winona Ryder and Bruce Greenwood. Ryder will be playing the Vulcan mother of a young Spock, to be played by Zachary Quinto, while Greenwood would play Christopher Pike, the Enterprise’s first captain, a character that appeared in the very first Star Trek episode before giving way to Kirk and company. Ryder and Greenwood joins a cast that already includes Chris Pine as Kirk, Simon Pegg as Scotty, Karl Urban as Dr. McCoy, and Eric Bana as the Romulan villain Nero. And no, there is no truth to the rumor that I’m up for the role of young Sulu.

The movie, to follow the early days of the Enterprise crew and possibly involve time travel, was written by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, and will be directed by J.J. Abrams.

This is actually the second time in outer space that I know off for Ryder. The last time she shed her indie girl image for sci-fi was in Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s “Alien 4″ movie, where she was so out of her element it bordered on the comical. Bruce Greenwood recently played the U.S. President in the upcoming Nicolas Cage sequel “National Treasure: Book of Secrets”.

    I don’t know why Variety reported that as such. Spock’s mother was human; her name was Amanda Grayson, and she was from Earth.
