    The guy who played Security Officer Cupcake was originally on the IMDB for Star Trek Into Darkness as well as the IMDB listing under his name, Jason Matthew Smith. I took a look this afternoon and he is no longer on the cast listing. I wonder what happened? He was in the latest edition comic 'Countdown To Darkness'.

    Maybe he was cut in the editing room.
    Personally, I don't trust anything imdb says, it's probably a screwup.

    IMDB also doesn't have Deep Roy listed even though Keenser was in the nine minute preview. Nothing new here.

    I'm more concerned about why Jason Matthew Smith felt compelled to state that his birth status was governed by the Treaty of Algeron rather than the Federation charter.

    It was obviously a double bluff. He isn't going to live past issue 4 of Countdown and IMDB got wind of it. :devil:

    I see the film has an actor with the name Gary-7, playing some alien.

    I heard the role was recast, some guy named Harrison Ford.

    And yet the "meter maid" remains...

    I was skeptical about the meter maid too, but then I saw the trailers, and the traffic in the streets on future-Earth (not to mention Noel Clarke and wife driving to the hospital in the prologue). In the future, there will be meter maids.

    IMDB is a fantastic resource for stuff that has already aired, but, since anyone can update it, prior to a movie premiering or a TV show airing it ends up with folks putting up rumors or even starting rumors by putting up stuff.

    JJ Trek isn't True Star Trek without Cupcake.

    If there's no money in the future, how do they fine you? Or do they just send you to a rehabilation colony?

    Well it's not listed on his page either, so maybe that means he isn't going to be in it after all. Who knows.

    OK...,
    Now I'm imagining a rehabilitation colony planet with robotic parking meters, that follow you around constantly shoving coins/tokens into your slot.

    You know those tags on mattresses that aren't supposed to be removed. If you remove them in the 23rd Century, they remove one of your pinky toes.

    I'm actually disappointed that Cupcake isn't returning.

    BTW, it oughta be "struck" not "stricken". "Cupcake was stricken with space herpes" vs. "Cupcake was struck from the duty roster." :)

    He's probably in it, don't trust IMDB. If it were accurate Uwe Boll would have directed movies based on Halo and Metal Gear Solid.
