Simon Pegg Geekily Pranked Co-Stars on 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Set

You might think Benedict Cumberbatch is the kinda smarty you just couldn't get one over on, but Simon Pegg's got just the right amount of nerd cred to make it happen.

In this behind-the-scenes set video from "Star Trek Into Darkness," Pegg conspired with the makeup team to create "Neutron Cream," a substance said to help protect the cast from excess neutrons floating around in the laser room ('cause wouldn't you fall for that?), and Cumberbatch — or as Pegg calls him, Cumbersbumberswumbers — totally got gotten.

'Star Trek 3' Producer Puts the Brakes on J.J. Abrams Return News

Paramount Paramount

We knew something seemed a little fishy when Zachary Quinto boldly announced (read: casually said at some film fest, setting us all into an unintended tizzy) that he expected "Star Trek 3" to begin filming next year with "Star Trek" and "Star Trek Into Darkness" director J.J. Abrams returning to his captaining station behind the lens.

'Cause everyone with an ounce of nerd cred knows that Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode VII" is going into production in January, and that's totally not some kinda Joss Whedon-esque pocket project he can bang out on the side in two weeks. That's a year's commitment, if not more.

So, we're not surprised that producer Bob Orci, when asked about the "news," calmly laid the smack down on that chatter, essentially telling Zap2it that the words were incredibly premature and unfounded. Get More »

Zachary Quinto: 'Star Trek 3' Filming to Start Next Year...With J.J. Abrams?!

Paramount Paramount

Live long and prosper — that's certainly what the folks at Paramount Pictures are hoping their "Star Trek" film franchise'll be able to do at the box office.  And it looks like the studio might just be aiming to set the threepeat into motion sooner than later as Zachary Quinto has spilled the beans that they might be eyeing a 2014 start for "Star Trek 3"...with J.J. Abrams directing.

According to BuzzHub, while Quinto was present for a Q&A interview session on Friday, July 12 at the 2013 Galway Film Fleadh in Galway City, Ireland, he let it slip that all that "Star Trek Into Darkness" cash had the studio wanting light speed turnaround on a third installment to the spacey franchise.

"'Star Trek 3' should be filming, I suppose, next year," he said in response to a question about the J.J. Abrams-led reboot series. "It's going to be made a lot quicker than the last one. That's the plan, although nothing is confirmed yet."

Quinto also reportedly mentioned that he believes Abrams himself intends to direct "Star Trek 3," which, for those keeping count of all of Abrams' commitments — he's got "Star Wars: Episode VII" heading for production in London early next year as well — might be a tad baffling.

Interestingly enough, Quinto also declared that he'll not be re-teaming with Abrams on that other intergalactic reboot, though he did not say why.

Who Does It Better? Original 'Star Trek' Cast Vs. New 'Star Trek' Cast

Star Trek Paramount

While most sci-fi fans are over the moon about "Star Trek Into Darkness" and the whole J.J. Abrams reboot, you may be surprised to learn that there are still quite a few "Star Trek" traditionalists who decry the new films as a monstrous blasphemy. A self-professed "Star Wars" fan turning "Star Trek" into a shoot first and ask questions later action franchise? No way.

And that got us wondering: Which is actually better, the new "Star Trek" or the old "Star Trek"? Get More »

Our 12 Favorite Sets of Hollywood Lookalikes

Separated at birth? Long-lost twins? Vague coincidence? It's all possible when actors look so alike they could be siblings.

Is that Zachary Quinto, the Chief Science Officer of "Star Trek Into Darkness," running from the horror of "Aftershock"? Ah, no, at second glance, that's actually Quinto's doppelganger, Eli Roth, the man who gave us "Cabin Fever" and shot Hitler full o' holes in "Inglourious Basterds."

Anyway, with "Aftershock" and the new "Trek" being released back-to-back, we figured this was the perfect time to match up our favorite Hollywood doubles as they compete for roles, attention and DNA. It's like looking into a mirror! Get More »

'Star Trek Into Darkness': Chris Pine And Zachary Quinto Talk Bromance


[From MTV NewsJust like Kirk and Spock in "Star Trek Into Darkness," Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto have developed a relationship that's seemingly built on a firm bedrock of respect and bewilderment. While attending the red carpet premiere of "Star Trek Into Darkness" in New York City, the two actors revealed that their relationship toward each other has grown to be as playfully opposed as the Enterprise's captain and his first officer.

"The worst thing is that Zach likes to play these ridiculous vocabulary games," Pine revealed, "which he will tell everybody he wins, which is such a crock of bullsh--." Get More »
