Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. This is a notoriously slow news time... but the good people at UGO have a nice juicy rumor that I have to share.
Their source has a line on an actor, his character and a very interesting situation in which we'll meet this particular person. If you're worried about spoilers and want to keep it all a big surprise, then you might want to skip over this next bit.
Oddly enough, the rumor is that Tyler Perry will appear in JJ Abrams' STAR TREK. Out of left field, right? I know when I think of STAR TREK I think of Tyler Perry.
He'll be playing a man this time out and, according to UGO's source, he'll be the head of the Starfleet Academy. He filmed a scene recently with Spock and Kirk... apparently he's displeased with Kirk over the rigging of a certain test... Thaaatttt's right. If UGO's source has it right (and I don't doubt them) Kobayashi Maru will be dealt with in the prequel. I would describe it for those that don't know, but if you don't know what Kobayashi Maru is then Netflix WRATH OF KHAN...
Pretty neat, huh? That gets my geek up a bit... Don't know what to think about Perry... I honestly don't know enough about Perry's work to have strong feelings on it one way or the other, but I can say I like the scenario we'll see him in. What do you folks think?
