For Noel Clarke, one of the newcomers signed for Star Trek 2, the audition for the latest Trek movie was just another audition.

“It was just an audition like all the others, really,” he said. “You do your lines and see what happens, and luckily this time I got the job. It was just a standard audition.”

Although happy about being cast, when Clarke received the news, he tried to keep calm about the good news. “I was at home, in my kids’ room, because they were making noise in the living room,” he said. “So I went into their room. And, yeah, I was told I’d got it, and, yeah, I was happy. I was happy. I don’t get over-excited about things because I’m just kind of like that. I was happy, but a job is a job. You get some and some you don’t get. You can’t get over-excited about stuff because that would mean if you got a review that was good you’d have to be really happy and if you got a bad review you would have to be distraught. I can’t switch it off, so I just read ‘em all. So I got the job and was like, ‘Hey, I’m in Star Trek.’”

Being cast in Star Trek 2 might have a positive impact on Clarke’s future career. “I think it’s just one of those things where it’s another level of accomplishment, where you’ve done another job that is bigger than the ones you’ve done before,” he said. “All of that stuff helps in your career, so hopefully it will just help me in mine, but I have no idea. How people look at me is up to them.”

Clarke was signed to play a “family man with a wife and young daughter”  in Star Trek 2.

    You will be living a different, more exposed life after being in this franchise.

    Hmmm, he sure seems to like himself. I wish they would hire people who loved Star Trek, instead of giving us chicken, when Star Trek is labelled beef.

    I got something completely different out of reading this. He sounds humble and down to earth. I’m not sure where you get “he sure seems to like himself”. He’s trying to be realistic about the business. As to positing that he doesn’t like Star Trek…where in the article did you get that? It seems like you just don’t want to like the new movie before it comes out.

    “Star Trek 2″???? ARRRGGGHHHHH!!! It’s Star Trek frikkin’ 12!

    12th of all Star Trek movies ever, yes. But anyone with common sense knows that we’re now in a new era, and legacy numbering is not needed. It’s #2 of the reboot.

    After all if we’re talking about a movie in production right now, I doubt anyone will go “What, Wrath of Khan?”

    No more than if we say 2012, no one says “BC or AD?!?!?!”

    I think “Star Trek II-A” is completely appropriate.
    Here’s an idea. How about reaching back to that bygone era where sequels had names, and not just numbers? How about something like “Star Trek Rides Again”, “Star Trek: Harvesting the Cash”, or “Star Trek: The Banging of the Hot Green Chick”?

    …and that’s saying a lot, considering how rabidly reverential the British Who community is. Come to think of it, he may be well prepared for this leap.

    So he’s a Vulcan in real life?

    Obviously Tuvok, Sisko or Geordi

    Is “Star Trek 2″ the official title now? I thought a named title was still an option.

  • Ensignahkinum

    I heard he’s going to play the alien humping the Enterprises-hull while everything else is going on, it’s going to be cool.
