    Zachary Quinto and Joseph Gordon-Levitt would both be good as force users I think.

    ALL acting is meant to be playing a character - but not the same character ALL the time.

    I'd like to see him as a rogue warlord.

    Or a good guy.

    Please see my above post. And then read the Wikipedia entry on "character actors". Then we can continue this conversation.

    Nothing wrong with him being in both - just like every movie needs more Emma Stone, they also need more Karl Urban. :)

    He is unreal as McCoy - no pun intended ;)

    I disagree - he was a Han Solo type, but sufficiently different.

    But I think all space captains will forever be compared against Solo - no matter how different they are.

    Oh, I know that. He would be cool in the ST as a nod to that, but IMO he's become a charicture.

    I wouldn't mind it but I wonder if it'd be a bit of a distraction since sci-fi geeks like me know that he's the new McCoy. Although, I thought he was forgettable as McCoy. i've liked him better in the other things he's done.

    I did read the post - but why should I look at Wikipedia?

    And even Tommy Lee Jones thinks the phrase "character actors is silly.

    Daniel Day-Lewis. It would be hilarious to see how he would get into character for the film.

    If you're referring to Meer and Hale, they're the voice actors who portrayed Commander Shepard in the Mass Effect trilogy. Since the player could choose whether to play as a male or female character, there were two voice leads with the same dialogue.

    It would just be a small easter egg, like the ET aliens in the galactic senate. Maybe have them in the background when someone stops before them and asks, "Shepard?" to which both would reply, "Yes?" Anyone who didn't get the reference would likely just ignore it.

    I haven't seen him in anything in years. Looking forward to Seven Psychopaths though.

    Dude, you are out of your Vulcan mind!!! :eek:

    He was outstanding in Trek ^:)^

    It is shameful that they sidelined him so much just to give Uhura screen time - and she nothing like the original. John Cho too.

    You could very well be right. I just don't pay attention to Star Trek much. I only saw it once like three years ago. Karl Urban rocks though. He was great in LOTR and that Bourne movie. He was also very good in Pathfinder. I really like him. He'd make an awesome hero in the ST.

    You should watch a couple of the old Treks and then see Urban's performance.

    I can't recall if Nimoy was on set for the scene where McCoy first meets Kirk, or it was an advance screening, but Nimoy cried - it was like Kelley was back from the dead.

    And Urban is awesome in Dredd.

    I haven't seen Dredd yet but I was excited to hear he was in it. I used to read Dredd comics, so I was a bit of a fan.

    As a fan of the comics you'll appreciate his performance of Dredd.

    Plus it was one of the few 3D movies to actually make use of 3D.It made the scenes where characters were high on Slo-Mo just look amazing.

    Not sure how that will look on BluRay or DVD - I'm assuming it has been and gone from the cinema everywhere by now.

    Yeah, it's been gone for a few months now. It didn't do well here. I wanted to se eit but I've been unemployed for a while at the time so I didn't. I'll see it on DVD soon.

    Karl Urban would be an excellent choice. He's very talented.

    You guys should check out OUT OF THE BLUE.

    Its a 2006 movie based on a real event in New Zealand in 1990. Actually accurate in almost every detail - nothing added for the "sake of drama".
