Okay people, you seriously
need to start paying attention to this thread! Mr. Original-Spock Himself, Martin Landau, has been cast in a pilot.
Written by Emmerich and Harold Kloser and to be directed by Emmerich, the project centers on Carter (Max Thieriot), an astrophysics grad student in NYC who learns that he is the chosen one to destroy the forces of evil. Landau, repped by TalentWorks, will play Mr. Armin, a blind former German soldier in World War II who is the executor of Carter’s father’s estate and one of Carter’s only true friends.
I hope this will be considered significant enough in and of itself that I can eschew further manufactured controversy.
