I think they just picked her for the resemblance to Quinto.

Not to mention Winona Ryder and Jennifer Aniston's kiss on Friends was sizzling.

Re: RLM finally did it / Plinkett reviews Star Trek

Actually, given that people in the Federation live to be 120-130 years old, someone who is 45-50 isn't going to look that old. . . hell, even actresses in their 40s and 50s today don't look old. . .I think people are operating under antiquated ideas of what old age is. . . I believe people are saying 50 is the new 30. . .

Great Review of Latest Star Trek Movie

Have you heard of redlettermedia? This guy does great reviews of films. Below is the link to his review of the latest Trek film by JJ Abrams. It contains intelligent commentary mixed in with some good comedy. I find myself agreeing with a lot of what he says. I really loved the movie and I appreciate the fact that he did not mess with the TOS universe too much (and made it work where he did), but it is not quite the TOS feel. Check it out and let us know what you think.

Discussion of the RLM review has been ongoing over here. I'm going merge your thread with that one, so that it's all going on in the one thread.

Please stand by...

Why didn’t they just give the role to an age-appropriate actress?
There's a deleted scene of young [pregnant] Amanda and young Sarek during Spock's birth, to sort of coincide with the birth of Kirk. They used Winona for both old and young Amanda, obviously, for continuity reasons. Now they did put some old-age makeup on Winona, you can tell, but it doesn't seem extreme enough which, yeah, I guess we can chalk up to aging just not being as drastic in the 23rdC.
Diane Lane. She's in what? her late thirties/early forties? You could easily make her younger for the birth with the right lighting and make up and then older for the rest of the movie just by accentuating the crow's feet she already has on her face. I love Winona Ryder. I grew up watching her in movies. But there are planty of actresses out there who could have played both scenes without being a distraction.

For the movie Zodiac, the director David Fincher wanted Gary Oldman to play real life lawyer Melvyn Belli (who was an actor on TOS, btw). The problem was Oldman looked nothing like Belli so they gave him a gray wig, old man make up, and a fat suit, only to realize how big a pain in the ass this would be for the actor, so they cast Brian Cox instead.

^What killed me was they even talk about the show's (then) recent demise. "I saw your episode of Star Trek.." "...Yeah it was a real shame [about the cancellation]. Good people over there."

And this is different from what they did to Winona Ryder, how?? Ryder is going to be 39 in October, btw, and Lane is going to be 46 in January. . .Ryder and Quinto look like they could be related. . . I'm not sure you could say the same if Lane had been the actress playing Amanda. . .
