Urban On Playing A Cranky McCoy

Sunday, April 12th, 2009

For Karl Urban, the key to Dr. Leonard McCoy is to look beneath the irascible front.

As reported by the New Zealand Herald, the appeal of Star Trek was the conflict between three strong personalities. “In my opinion Star Trek was always a cult of personality before science fiction,” said Urban. “You wanted to see the conflict between the characters, the grouchy, irascible Dr. McCoy argue with the rational, logical Spock, and see the hero, James T. Kirk make a decision and then go and bone the green girl. To me, that’s what was most intriguing about it, the fact it was a character-driven show with such strong personalities.” (more…)

Orci And Kurtzman: Fitting In What Fans Expect

Thursday, March 26th, 2009

Co-writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman had a job ahead of them when it came to including the necessary “signature bits” to make Star Trek XI feel like Star Trek.

As reported by Sci Fi Wire, it took careful thought to include important character references yet keep Star Trek XI from seeming contrived by doing so. “The key is to introduce those things in a very organic way, so that the audience doesn’t feel like, ‘Oh, this is the scene where they design it around [that bit],” explained Kurtzman. “It’s more about creating a story so that all of those things that you are hoping you will see in the characters comes out.” (more…)

Pine: Fans To See Full Spectrum of Kirk

Wednesday, February 25th, 2009

Chris Pine‘s portrayal of Kirk will combine the old and the new, with the character maturing over the course of Star Trek XI.

As reported by CNN, fans needn’t worry that Pine’s version of Kirk will be too different for them to accept. “I think that with this Jim Kirk you’ll get the flavor of the old,” said Pine. “I tried to bring my own take to it and do justice to what Mr. Shatner did before, but you get to see the full spectrum of Jim Kirk. There’s the young, bold, brash, cocky [quality] and I think there’s a maturity that happens within the arc of the character in the movie that’s really fun that I think people will respond to.”
