    Awesome! Peter Weller's great. Loved Odyssey 5, and he was great in Enterprise's "Demons"/"Terra Prime" two-parter.

    I love me some Weller. Rumor has it that he'll be playing Dr. Banzai. ;)

    Okay, does nobody know how to spell "Khan"? Now they're getting it wrong in published news articles?

    (Not the main point, I realize, but it drives me nuts that 3/4's of the world seems to think it's spelled "Kahn," not Khan as "Genghis Khan" or "Kublai Khan.")

    Interesting. Is he the first person, apart from Leonard Nimoy obviously, to appear in a prime-timeline story and nu-Trek?

    No one has ever known how to spell "Khan."

    I think Kael got it right. ;)

    I recently made the mistake of watching 'Leviathan' and he was the only good part of the movie :p

    Re: Peter Weller joins Star Strek Sequel cast

    There have been several, depending on what you consider "counts".

    Wil Wheaton and Majel Barrett had voice overs.

    Greg Ellis and W. Morgan Sheppard had speaking and somewhat memorable roles in the film.

    Richard Arnold, Anna Katarina, and Christopher Doohan, if those count, all had cameo appearances.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there are others.

    Nope. Morgan Sheppard had a couple of guest shots on TNG and Voyager and was head of the Vulcan Science bunch in the 09 movie.

    No, because W. Morgan Sheppard has done it with previous on-screen roles on TNG and Voyager TV episodes and TOS-based movies as well as Trek 2009.

    Be funny if Chris Pine landed the role of Robocop in that remake, as has been rumoured.

    Edit - and thank you all for clarifying the 'first actor' query.
