Deep Roy, the genre actor who portrayed Scotty’s sidekick Keenser in Star Trek XI, has his fingers crossed that fans will see his character again in the next Star Trek movie.
In a video taken at the 2010 Sci-Fi Expo in Richardson, Texas, Deep Roy, best-known to fans for his role as an Oompa Loompa in 2005’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, spoke about his admiration for J.J. Abrams as well as his hopes for a future role in Star Trek XII.
“J.J. Abrams is another talented director, writer, creator. I love him, I love J.J. Hopefully I will be in the sequel of the Star Trek, which is still writing at the moment. I am glad he put me on the starship, on the Enterprise. And let’s see what happens in the sequel.”
