Honestly I though he was great in the role, I hope they keep him.
Please don't say that !!!! Were you fimular with the original Scotty?
He is nothing like him
all the other actors tried to at least have some aspects of the original characters But Pegg just threw it all out and acted like a clown

First of all, the script makes Scotty a comic character, not Pegg. Second, this is pre-Doohan-Scott. Third, this is a guy who has been marooned on a godforsaken planet for quite some time, no wonder he has some antics. Fourth, he, the main character who got introduced pretty late in the movie slowly grew more serious. Just compare his behaviour on Delta Vega to his behaviour on the 'conference scene' on the bridge (where all six main characters stand and discuss and Spock later joins) or the beaming scene or when he has to dumb the core.

But all the charters were way before what they matured into in TOS. Besides, with lal the chages that got made to the timeline, they would behave diffrently, diffrent experinces.

I thought Pegg was OK. Visually not a match and maybe a bit overexcitable in places. But for the most part - he did pretty good.

It was fair, almost as good as Doohan's (which wasn't 100% authentic in my opinion.)

It wasn't the worst I've ever heard onscreen, that's for sure!! I could tell he was putting it on (I think there may also be a good bit of ADR stuff to iron out any rough edges during some the filming), but overall it was decent enough.

I'd give it a 7/10 - maybe on a good day 8.

Pegg had to learn a Scottish dialect for the film. I can't remeber if he's Welsh or Irish.

I was the most worried about Simon Pegg as Scotty but once he got in the engine room he was Mr Scott. He was a bit loopy early on but that situation could make you so.
