i'm not really sure what his problem is but he's coming off like a small, petty man.

I agree. Big talk from a guy who did margerine ad's on the early 70's...and the same guy who starred in the first (and as far as I know) only film on Esperanto...Incubus.

Sounds perfectly reasonable to me.

Have you seen the latest Star Trek film?

I haven't. Abrams sent me a message through the Web - what was it, Twittered me? No. YouTubed me? No, what has he done? E-mailed me. He e-mailed me saying he heard that I hadn't seen the movie and he'd set up a private screening, and I declined the private screening and told him I'd buy him dinner.

How come?

The sort of mild reluctance is that if I were seen going in, the way people talk about things, it'd be mentioned. So I'd have to wear a hat, and gloves, who knows. I didn't want to go through that minor irritation.

I've heard that Leonard Nimoy publicly blasted him about it this past weekend in Las Vegas.

He meant a disguise...that's a classicly lame one...

like he should just be happy for the new cast and for Pine who did a brilliant job instead of being arrogant and grumpy about the whole thing
