Production on 'Star Trek: Nemesis' is now moving along at warp speed, with two new faces recently added to the film's supporting cast.
Steven Culp and Dina Meyer will both have featured roles in the film, the Hollywood Reporter said yesterday. The pair will portray the characters of Commander Madden and Commander Donatra, respectively.
Culp has appeared in films such as 'Thirteen Days,' 'Nurse Betty' and 'James and the Giant Peach' in addition to his recurring role on the television series JAG. His character, Commander Madden, takes over as Enterprise-E first officer at the end of the film when William Riker leaves to command his own ship, the U.S.S. Titan.
Best known for her performance as Private Dizzy Flores in the film 'Starship Troopers,' Meyer's work includes a role in 'Bats,' written by 'Nemesis' scribe John Logan. Commander Donatra is a Romulan who works closely with Shinzon, the movie's principal villain.
The trade paper also listed Whoopi Goldberg and Majel Barrett among the cast - no doubt reprising their respective roles of Guinan and Lwaxana Troi. Goldberg and Barrett join Kate Mulgrew (Kathryn Janeway) and Wil Wheaton (Wesley Crusher), who are also making special appearances in the movie.
Directed by Stuart Baird, 'Star Trek: Nemesis' was written by John Logan from a story by Logan, Rick Berman and Brent Spiner (Data). The film is currently slated for release late next year.
