Star Trek Into Darknesscast Gets Trekkied
Finally , a man boldly went there.
Look, the beauty of the 'Star Trek' franchise is how unabashedly geeky Trekkies can be. Those nerds just don't give a flying eff what anyone outside the Starship Enterprise has to say about them, so there's a ton of fun to be had with it.
Here in this 'Star Trek Into Darkness' junket interview with J.J. Abrams and his cast — Chris Pine , Zachary Quinto , Benedict Cumberbatch , Zoe Saldana , Karl Urban , John Cho , and Alice Eve — quirky YouTuber Daniele Rizzo posed as Spocko, a Vulcan-slinging weirdo with no qualms about asking tough questions like who this John Harrison baddie is and how the 'crew' feels about the term 'V.I.L.F.'
And while Captain J.J. looked pretty peeved about being demoted to craft services, the thespians among the crew handled the wannabe Vulcan's pressure pretty well.
Alice Eve and Karl Urban got cool points right away for offering up proper 'greetings' at the outset, and Chris Pine earned some space cred too by throwing a 'live long and prosper' into the mix. Zach Quinto and Zoe Saldana, meanwhile, did well to muscle through all the deadpanning and answer the odd inquiries with (mostly) straight faces.
That said, it's best to just live long and...watch the video.
