First Cast Member Announced, Sort Of

E! Online is reporting that someone named Zachary Quinto from Heroes, don't watch the show so I don't know who he is, is very close to closing a deal to play Mr. Spock in the upcoming Star Trek movie. And this is what I've been worried about. Remember how people reacted to Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom in the Pirates movies? Look close to how these two women react to the news. They're going to turn this movie into a "insert star name here" movie and not a Star Trek movie. They're only going to care about who's in it and how hot they are and not the movie. The big rumor going around is that Matt Damon will play James Kirk. If that happens it will officially kill the movie. At least for me. The official cast announcement will be make later this week at Comicon. If J.J. Abrams is going to commit blasphemy and make this, I wish he would cast unknowns.
