‘Star Trek 2’ wish list hinted by actor Bruce Greenwood

HollywoodNews.com: As J.J. Abrams keeps any kind of news about the “Star Trek” sequel under wraps, Bruce Greenwood, who played James T. Kirk’s mentor Captain Pike in the film, would love to be in the film; in fact he’d love the character to have his own franchise.

Speaking with Collider, Greenwood exclaimed “I think Captain Pike is an essential component to the whole franchise. I think there should be a whole offshoot of Pike’s adventures.

“There’s nothing that says Pike can’t get up and out of that wheelchair, get his own ship and go off on some adventures of his own. I’m now an admiral but I just want to get out of the wheelchair.”

And since Star Trek takes place in the future, human limitations can be cheated quite easily.

“I had a long conversation about that with J.J. (Abrams) early on because he wanted the hair to go [white]…because in the script it says the hair goes all white. I said ‘Do we have to get so Malcolm McDowell about it?’”

Greenwood recently appeared in the Jay Roach comedy “Dinner for Schmucks.” “Star Trek” is rumored to start shooting in January. The reboot, released last summer, chalked up $385.5 million worldwide.
