Star Trek fans, meet your new Captain Christopher Pike!

The Hollywood Reporter shares the news that Bruce Greenwood has been chosen to play Pike — the character Trek fans know as the first captain of the Starship Enterprise — in the J.J. Abrams-directed Star Trek XI.

While perhaps not a household name, the 51-year-old Greenwood has compiled a long list of credits during his decades in show business, including roles on television (St. Elsewhere, Knots Landing) and in film (Thirteen Days, The Malibu Bikini Shop).

Before suiting up as Captain Pike, Greenwood will be seen in I’m Not There and National Treasure: Book of Secrets.
