New Kirk and Scotty Chosen for Star Trek XI?

Oh, and by the way, Adrien Brody could have played Spock.

It’s been a while since we took a look at any of the casting rumors swirling around J.J. AbramsStar Trek XI, but we’re making up for lost time today — here’s a triple shot of Trek buzz from around the Web!

First up: Yesterday’s IESB report that Mike Vogel has been tapped to play James Kirk. Though unable to obtain official confirmation from either the studio or Vogel’s reps, the site did get the nod from the ever-popular unnamed “studio insiders,” and it’s worth noting that Vogel’s handlers at the Gersh Agency “asked…nervously where we heard the news.”

Film credits for the 28-year-old Vogel, a former model, include appearances in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Poseidon, and — perhaps most importantly — a role in Abrams’ forthcoming Cloverfield (or whatever it’s called).

Meanwhile, IGN Movies reported yesterday that Paul McGillion — best known for his role on Stargate: Atlantis — has confirmed that he has auditioned for the role of chief engineer Montgomery “Scotty” Scott. McGillion issued the obligatory “great honor” statement, saying “Obviously it would be a great honour to follow in James Doohan[‘s] footsteps.” The IGN report goes on to note that Doohan’s son has tossed his hat in the ring for McGillion, calling him “a GREAT choice for the role of Scotty.”

This last bit isn’t really a casting rumor, but it’s interesting nonetheless: In a report posted yesterday at MTV Movies, Adrien Brody confirms that he was at least briefly up for the role of Spock:

“I did talk to J.J. [Abrams] about that…that would have been cool. I told my parents. They got a kick out of it. ‘I may be Spock!’ Oh, well. Could have been cool.”

There’s no denying Brody’s chops, but it’s hard to argue with Abrams’ ultimate choice of Zachary Quinto for young Spock. Aside from Quinto, the latest Trek‘s confirmed cast now includes Zoe Saldana as Uhura and Anton Yelchin as Pavel Chekov. With the film’s release date still over a year away, we can expect to read plenty more of these reports.
