The casting of Peter Weller (and Leonard Nimoy) in Abrams Trek

Peter Weller is now the second actor, following Leonard Nimoy, who appears in both the old Roddenberry/Berman Trek and the new Abrams Trek (although, strictly speaking, Majel Barrett had voiced the Enterprise computer in ST09).

Both Nimoy and Weller had also previously guest-starred on Fringe. But only after they had first appeared on a Star Trek show.

Nimoy: TOS -> Fringe -> Abramstrek
Weller: ENT -> Fringe -> Abramstrek

Interesting concidence (?) I might say.

Which former Trek actor who has also appeared in Fringe will be featured in the next movie after STID, I wonder?

I thought Nimoy was on Fringe after Trek XI?

I checked it. You're right of course... by exactly four days. ST09 premiered on May 8, 2009 and Nimoy's first appearance on Fringe was on May 12, 2009. (Probably not a coincidence).

Leonard Nimoy had a secretary named Weller.
Peter Weller had a secretary named Nimoy.

They both showered on a Friday.

Coincidence?

Yes, but Nimoy filmed his Trek XI material in 2007, possibly early 2008, while his first Fringe episode would have likely been filmed winter 2009.

Of relevance to this thread, I think Nimoy was Peter Weller's acting mentor or something back when Weller was in acting school. I remember Weller mentioning it in an interview done around the time he guest starred on Enterprise.

Well, Clint Howard appeared on Fringe. Which probably means a Clint Howard cameo in the next Trek movie is pretty much inevitable.

Or even in STID. Perhaps Harrison is Balok's puppet?

Orci & Kurtzman also got Weller in Hawaii 5-0
I think they got him to do it after STID.

Anyway, how about an Anna Torv underwear Trek scene?

Re: The casting of Peter Weller (and Leonard Nimoy) in Abrams Trek

I'd settle for more Buckaroo Banzai actors in Trek. We've got Weller, Vincent Schiavelli, and Christopher Lloyd. Who's next?

William Morgan Sheppard was in TUC and in XI ... I don't think he was in Fringe, though.

As well as TNG and Voyager. And Doctor Who, though that came after XI.

Re: The casting of Peter Weller (and Leonard Nimoy) in Abrams Trek

I seem to recall something about Lance Reddick being a Trekkie, and getting to visit the set and sit in the captain's chair during filming of the 2009 movie. He'd be cool to have on board.

Joshua Jackson auditioned to be James T. Kirk and Leonard McCoy!
