The Sunday Mirror reports James McAvoy has been cast as Scotty in JJ Abrams' new Star Trek prequel. The rumor has been circulating for awhile now, but this is the first time it's been confirmed. I don't really know anything about this James McAvoy guy, but I still say they should've gone with my idea: digging up the original Scotty's corpse and moving him around like a puppet. You know, put sunglasses on him Weekend At Bernie's style. Academy Awards here we come!
