Well, it looks like this might be one of who-knows-how-many of those Hollywood productions he's attached to in some manner.
Variety is reporting that the actor/writer/director/producer/playwright/etc has been cast in J.J. Abrams' sequel to the successful 2009 Star Trek movie, currently known strictly as Star Trek 2.
No word on what character he'll play, whether he'll be human, or behind a whole bunch of makeup and prosthetics that we don't even recognize him, or...
Although Variety says he'll play a family man with a wife and kid. So I guess we can take that to mean he'll be human :)
The film, which Zoe Saldana should also be returning to in her role as Uhura, is scheduled for release on May 17, 2013, likely after being post-converted to 3D, Abrams himself previously stated.
