Clifton Collins lets die-hard fans know that this Star Trek is different than classic Star Trek.

As reported by Creators.com, Collins, who plays a Romulan along with Eric Bana, had this to say about Star Trek XI. "He's [Abrams] totally reinvented the whole thing and taken the cheese out of it."

According to Collins, "I tried to watch some of the old 'Star Treks,' and with all due respect, they were probably cool at the time, but I couldn't watch them. This is the real deal. It's just got a lot of reality. It's not corny at all."

He also spoke about the roles that he and Bana portrayed. "I can't tell you too much, but me and Eric are some real bad dudes. If you think you've seen me play some bad dudes on this planet, wait 'til you see me off this planet, raisin' up in outer space."

Speaking of Bana, the first photo of him in character has appeared as reported by TrekMovie.com as taken from an article in Entertainment Weekly. The picture can be seen here. Three other cast photos have also debuted, including Chris Pine as Captain Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Spock and Zoe Saldana as Lieutenant Uhura. The four posters combine to make one large poster. Fans attending Comic Con next week will be given one of the four posters.
