Simon Pegg, who plays Scotty in the films, is writing the next film. Absolute Radio caught up with him and talked about the pressure of writing it and he talked about it, saying, "It’s enormous pressure. I’m barely able to speak right now, I’m so terrified. It’s good. It’s going well. We’re working at it hard."
Then they asked him whether Idris Elba will play a Klingon in the film. Pegg denied that Elba is playing a Klingon saying: "That’s not true. I heard there’s a rumor he’s been spoken to about stuff — so he may be in the film, but he won’t be a Klingon." Then he laughed and said, "Or maybe he will."
Of course, we know Pegg lied through his teeth about Cumberbatch playing Khan in Star Trek into Darkness, so we know he's full of it. In fact, in a bizarro world, maybe this is confirmation! You heard it here first! Pegg confirms Elba will play a Klingon in Star Trek 3!
Do you think Idris Elba would make a good villain in the next Star Trek movie?
