Re: Orci Drops Trek 2 Character Hints
I'm reading the article and I find this interesting.
' “All I can say is that when I did that radio interview I had just been doing 22 hours of press. I had just got off a flight from New Zealand…,” said Orci.'
That blows his list of characters that are not going to be in the movie.
Look at the next line.
, but are you sticking with your original comment and it isn’t Gary Mitchell. "
The "callback" is Orci parodying a comment Karl Urban made just a few days before when he was asked to follow up with his comment that Cumberbatch plays Mitchell.
"All I can say is that I did that interview after a 22-hour flight from New Zealand. I literally hopped off the plane into the interview."
Orci then followed up with TM's question and said (verbatim) "I would say that I never lie."
Orci called into a radio show a few weeks ago and explicitly stated that Gary Mitchell is not in the movie.
No reason to go further, it's right there.
What reason would Urban have to pull Mitchell out of his ass? And didn't Pegg say it wasn't Khan?
Someone's lying somewhere...
