Matt Damon, Adrien Brody And Gary Sinise In J J Abrams' Star Trek?

IGN are alleging that Matt Damon, Adrien Brody and Gary Sinise are in talks to appear in J J Abrams' Star Trek film - as Kirk, Spock and Scotty, respectively. [Of course, I meant Bones McCoy, not Scotty. Because, you know, I was wide awake when I wrote this and I even care a tiny little bit about Star Trek and everything. Thanks to Adam for the correction]

So I can give up on 'hoping for' Leonardo DiCaprio, D J Qualls and John Hannah then. [Or, in this case, DiCaprio, Qualls and... er... I dunno. Who was this Bones chap anyway?]

Ahem.

Speaking of ahem...

"US, February 26, 2007 - IGN Movies has learned from studio sources which actors may play the Big Three in Paramount's Star Trek XI. By the "Big Three," we mean, of course, Captain James T. Kirk, Mr. Spock and Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy"

Now, reread your blurb...

This rumour seems to be all about squeezing star actors who bear some form of physical likeness to the original cast (in their youth) into the roles, rather than casting actors who'd inhabit the roles the way Shatner, Nimoy and Kelley did.
