08:45 pm: I think he's the perfect choice...

Pegg Seeks Approval From Star Trek Fans

22 August 2008 12:09 AM, PDT

British actor Simon Pegg is not surprised he has come under fire for landing a role in the upcoming Star Trek film - but still hopes to win over the franchise's fans.

Pegg has been cast as Scotty in the new movie and has received criticism from sci-fi fans who believe he will ruin the role - originally played by late actor James Doohan - with his comedic background.

But Pegg is desperate to win them over.

He says, "I am not surprised by their reaction. I think that's because they immediately thought I was there to undermine the franchise having had a background in comedy, but that's not what it's about at all."

Why would his comedic background be a problem? Scotty was FUNNY! *sends a wave of handsmackers at the dumb complaining fans*

Yes and no--I just started accessing Yahoo Messenger from my cell phone. I've had limited computer access for the last several weeks so I started tinkering with options on my phone. For some reason, I get logged in (or out) and I never know until I go to make a call and see the alert. I promise I'm not willfully avoiding you! :)

Also, if I can get over looking at Spock doing a Vulcan Mindmeld, and not stand up and scream, "DUDE, HE'S STEALING YOUR BRAIN, FOR GOD'S SAKE FLEE!!" I can get over anything with this movie.

Seriously...after the last 5 movies or so...how could Pegg undermine the franchise more than the franchise itself with it's crappy sequels...they make george lucas appear to have writing talent.
