Jason Isaacs, who will play USS Discovery Captain Lorca, spoke briefly about Star Trek: Discovery while being interviewed about the Netflix series The OA, in which he plays an obsessed scientist.
“Trekkie fans are desperate for any kind of homeopathic hint of what’s going on,” he said, referring to the secrecy that always shrouds Trek projects these days. “I can tell you that it’s called Star Trek Discovery. I can tell you I’m in it and I have started shooting. It is absurdly cool. I feel like a five year old. Anything else I tell you would just ruin it for you.”
