Yelchin to search for nuclear wessels.

It won’t arrive on screens until Christmas of next year, but the casting dominoes for Star Trek XI are starting to fall — fans recently received official word of Zachary Quinto as their new Spock, and now ComingSoon is reporting on who will be taking over for Walter Koenig as navigator Pavel Chekov.

Representing Mother Russia for the new Trek crew? Anton Yelchin, who can be seen with Robert Downey Jr. in the upcoming Charlie Bartlett. Yelchin’s filmography is slim, but he doesn’t strike us as a bad choice; Koenig often maintained that Chekov’s presence on the bridge was an effort to inject a little teen idol flavor into the show, and this should do the trick. We should hear more casting news soon, according to the article:

Casting is under way in New York and London for Kirk, Bones, Uhura, Sulu, Scotty, the film’s villain and the Federation captain. J.J. Abrams, who will direct the untitled film, is expected to sign bigger-name actors for the latter two parts.
