I doubt we'd get the Eternal Sunshine Carrey.

No need to worry. Carrey will play Q similar to his Ace Ventura character.


Goodbye, Jean-Luc, I'm gonna miss you. You had such potential. But then again, all good things must come to an end.

Carey as Q would be a personal nightmare for me.. never ever liked him.

Why can't we have DeLancie? Send him to the gym!

Re: Star Trek III - The [Speculation Begins] (Spoilers)

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson should definitley do Star Trek again, he would be a good Klingon!

I am being serious, Star Trek helped to start his acting career and hes done very well for himself since. GI:Joe and Fast & Furious have certainly benefited from his presence, and he is recognisable worldwide!

Mila Kunis is a big Trekkie and would certainly be in the next movie. If she is free!

Tom Hanks is still a big star and would make a good Starfleet admiral (Pike Replacement)!

Re: Star Trek III - The [Speculation Begins] (Spoilers)

The Rock is actually not that bad of an actor. I mean, what is professional wrestling if not acting? And I agree he would make a great Klingon.

You're kidding, right ? Did you ever watch the WWE back in his heyday ? The man played the crowd like an instrument. Even when he was a heel, he'd get them to chant his name, and even as a face, he'd manage to get boos on demand. Man's a natural with a microphone.

Yeah. Given the choice, I'd take Carrey.

Kathleen Quinlan would be a good Romulan captain, she has the looks, a little point on the ears and tugging of the eyes and she would be perfect.

Even if Dwayne's Walking Tall movie was terrible, I'd still rather watch him over Carrey anyday.

1. It'll either be Klingons, Borg, or V'ger.

2. I support The Rock being in the movie. For The Gratuitous Underwear Scene (TM).

3. I think Shatner should deliver the "These Are The Voyages" Speech.

4. It needs to be big. Like fucking huge. They set the bar really high.

Looks like they're having a Romulan Klingon War in the After Darkness comic so I think that that theme's out for the next movie

Dwayne Johnson is quite a good actor and despite having been at it for a while is probably at the beginning of his real career.

Re: Star Trek III - The [Speculation Begins] (Spoilers)

It's interesting to read the mostly positive comments about Dwayne Johnson. When he appeared on the VOY episode most trek fans on this site were outraged, saying a wrestler had no business being in a trek episode and it was nothing but UPN promoting their wrestling show.

I was one of the few people who supported him, pointing out that he already had acting experience since he was a WWE wrestler. Also he was playing a wrestler type athelte on the show and not some scientist. He was good in it and it was a decent and entertaining episode but got bashed by VOY fans.

Eh, I liked it. Johnson was pretty much playing the Rock role, but he was good, Hertzler and the Hirogen Fighter/Seven interaction were very good, and Combs was appropriately slimy in his role. What's not to like?
