Greenwood: Trek Secrecy

Friday, July 27th, 2012

Like everyone else associated with Star Trek 2, Bruce Greenwood wants to keep details of next year’s Star Trek 2 away from the public.

“You can’t blame people for being interested and excited, trying to find out,” he said. “But everyone who’s involved in the film is committed to keeping it under wraps.”

Greenwood explained why such secrecy is necessary. “So the audience can have an experience that isn’t complicated by having to pretend they don’t know what happens,” he said. “It makes it trickier to conceal things so that when you see it for the first time you don’t know what’s coming, but that’s okay.”

Greenwood: Pike Essential To Trek

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

Bruce Greenwood, who played Captain Christopher Pike in Star Trek XI, would like to see more of Pike in future Trek.

Greenwood would love to return to Trek, and he couldn’t resist giving his tongue-in-cheek opinion of Pike’s importance to the Star Trek franchise in a recent interview. “I think Captain Pike is an essential component to the whole franchise,” he said. “I think there should be a whole offshoot of Pike’s adventures.”

But what about Pike’s physical impairment? Would that make a difference? Not according to Greenwood. “There’s nothing that says Pike can’t get up and out of that wheelchair, get his own ship and go off on some adventures of his own. I’m now an admiral, but I want to get out of the wheelchair.”

It is not known if Pike will be back in Star Trek XII, but fans, as well as Greenwood, can only hope.

Greenwood – Return To Trek?

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

Although character actor Bruce Greenwood (Captain Christopher Pike) has plenty of acting work, he would not be averse to returning to the Star Trek world.

Pike could return, according to Greenwood, and since Star Trek XII is in an alternate reality, anything can happen to the character, who is not bound by “canon Trek.” “Oh, I’ll be there in a second, in a hot second,” he said. “I know they’re writing the script and I encourage them whenever I see them to make Pike a critical element.”
