Winona Ryder Going To Get Pointy Ears


Winona Ryder has agreed to join the cast of Star Trek as the mother of Spock. The film which is set to begin shooting this month and will be released next Christmas has Lost creator JJ Abrams at the helm. He has already cast Simon Pegg as Scotty and Eric Bana as the bad guy.

The move which seems to about the 400th different one will be a prequel of sorts as it takes place at the Starfleet Academy and how the Enterprise crew members all met. The original Spock will be in the new film, but the original Captain Kirk, William Shatner will not. Shatner has been quoted as saying he feels slighted and upset that he hasn't been asked, but promises to hook everyone up with free rental cars from Priceline if they let him have at least a cameo.

Spock's mother was human, so no pointy ears.

I know that Winona is like 40 now, but really doesn't look that old. How is she going to be Zachary Quinto's mom?

lol, is it rude to call dreadpirate a dork for knowing this? not in a mean way, but in a well, semi-dorky treky way.
