IGN Movies reports that Nichols — who will be seen running around a parking garage and screaming a lot in P2 this Friday — might be “up for an unspecified role” in Trek. The rumor makes sense, given that Trek director J.J. Abrams worked with Nichols on Alias. From the article:
The Nichols rumor was first reported by FreezeDriedMovies.com. TrekMovie.com speculates that Nichols could be up for characters such as “Number One” (Captain Pike’s first officer), Nurse Chapel or perhaps Carol Marcus, the mother of Captain Kirk’s future son David. CHUD.com suspects that Nichols might play Yeoman Janice Rand.
Kirk’s baby mama? Yeah, we can see that:
