Re: Who is John Harrison (Possible SPOILERS or Insane Babbling)

I appreciate the snarky retorts, and enjoy reading the discussion.

I should have done a forum search, 'tis true. I've been off-BBS for quite a long time and this is the only thread I read before my post.

JJ is gonna get my $$$ no matter who is right on this one...but I will eat my ticket stub if I'm wrong. AND I'll be really disappointed in him if he picks an obvious villain like Khan or Mitchell. About as much as I was when he obliterated Vulcan, but not so much that I'll wait for the BlueRay.

I also hated Cromwell as Cochrane, because he looked nothing like Glenn Corbett. I wasn't a huge fan of TNG, so I was unaware he played Minister Nayak until I just looked it up. I don't much care if the actor plays multiple parts with lots of makeup, but it really wrecks things for me if the same actor is used in a recognizable manner for multiple parts. But that is beside the point of the thread...

Weller had to be convinced to play Paxton; I'd be hard pressed to think he would be willing to play someone else in the Trek universe. No offense to myself, I think he would be a slave to canon. He's a history professor, after all.

And admittedly I wouldn't mind to see some sort of homage to ENT. That show sucked for 3 years and then they cancelled it when it was finally getting good. It deserved better, but that is also beside the point of this thread...

I don't remember what it took to get Weller on Enterprise, but that was a failing tv show.
This is a big budget blockbuster with big names in the business behind it. I'm guessing it would be easier to convince Weller to sign on for that.

True enough.

(He signed a deal to direct 2 Season 5 episodes of ENT, that was his price. He signed it the day before ENT was cancelled. Per Memory Alpha...)

Could be a genetically engineered hybrid of Sherlock Holmes and Professor Moriarty. Sherlock's appearance and Moriarty's criminal personality with some amazing powers tossed in by the scientists for good measure?

I shall. My wife might think I'm crazy when I do it, but I guess that won't be out of the ordinary.

Re: Who is John Harrison (Possible SPOILERS or Insane Babbling)

New to the board....looking forward to the new movie. I am very interested in who the bad guy really is. I am hoping he is Gary Mitchell. Like most, I do think John Harrison is a fake cover name for the real bad guy. It could be made up. Cumberbatch will also be playing the part of Brian Epstine in upcoming Tom Hanks movie about the Beatles manger. Make me wonder if the name "John Harrison" is a name that Abrams came up with from combination of John Lennon and George Harrison.

John Harrison will be revealed to be the dreaded villain Harri Johnson, a vengeance-obsessed manscaper.
