Bruce Greenwood (Captain Pike) shared his memories of his Star Trek experience, from the initial phone call from J.J. Abrams, to differences between Jeffrey Hunter‘s Pike and his Pike.
The call from Abrams came out of the blue to Greenwood, who nevertheless jumped at the opportunity to be involved in Star Trek XI. “I wasn’t aware that J.J. knew I was on the planet,” Greenwood said. “Why would he? But he called me out of the deep blue … and wow, OK, sure I’ll come in! I’d love to do it.”
