Scotty Casting Buzz
A Scottish actor has been chosen to play to Scotty in the upcoming Star Trek movie. Read on:
Reports from across the pond claim to reveal which U.K. actors are up for the role of U.S.S. Enterprise chief engineer Montgomery “Scotty” Scott in director J.J. Abrams’ new Star Trek movie.
TrekMovie.com points out two reports from Scotland’s The Daily Record that name Scottish actors who are in the running to play Scotty. One reported contender is Martin Compston, 23, whose credits include A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, Monarch of the Glen, Sweet Sixteen and Neil Marshall’s forthcoming thriller Doomsday.
An unnamed “friend” of Compston’s informed the paper, “Martin has had a couple of callbacks for the part of Scotty. But they’re a way from making a decision on the part yet and there’s some stiff competition. … He has joked that he might look a bit too young for the part and worries it might be one of the rare examples of someone in Hollywood being held back because they look too young.”
