Bruce Greenwood, who played Christopher Pike in Star Trek XI, is eager to be a part of Star Trek XII.
“I can hardly wait,” said Greenwood, talking about the sequel to J.J. Abrams‘s Star Trek reboot. Greenwood has spoken to Abrams about Star Trek XII, and Greenwood’s participation in the film. “…there are no guarantees,” said Greenwood. “J.J., one of the nicest guys on the planet, has indicated there will be a place in the project for me.”
Star Trek XII is expected to begin shooting next summer.
Greenwood’s latest project, a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie called A Dog Named Christmas, will air on November 29. A Dog Named Christmas is the story of a developmentally-challenged young man who convinces his family to participate in an “adopt a dog for Christmas” program. Greenwood plays the father of the young man.
