Default The Simon Pegg, John Cho, Anton Yelchin and Eric Bana appreciation thread

For all the main characters who don't have their own thread, I feel it is incumbent upon me as a newly promoted captain to give these guys their own thread. Please feel free to add your appreciation of others who also don't have their own threads. Maybe this will mean we can reduce the number of appreciation threads.

I'd like to say that Simon Pegg was GREAT and he had a much better Scottish accent than James Doohan.

I thought I'd head it off at the pass.

I think they call it a pre-emptive strike

Oprah calls that "empowerment", I think.

As for my thoughts:

Simon Pegg....was actually concerned at first, but was pretty much blown away by what he did with the character, only hoping that he'll have more of a chance to shine in the next film.
And yes.....his accent knocks Doohan's to all hell.

Anton Yelchin's portrayal just made me wanna pat him on the head.
Such a sweet little lad.

Yes, I'd have been happy to take Yelchin home to keep as a pet.

A lot of people go on about Karl Urban's performance, and while I think his performance is brilliant, it is surpassed in my opinion by Simon Pegg's Scotty. I felt that Simon Pegg stole every scene he was in. "Can I get a towel, please?" sent me into fits of laughter when I first saw the snippet of that scene they released on the internet prior to the film's release. I expect to see MUCH more of him in the future.

In short, I liked Simon Pegg (but I will continue to prefer Doohan unless Pegg puts on a stellar performance next time). John Cho did a good job with Sulu, and so did Anton with Chekov. I thought that Bana played a nifty villain and certainly was one of the most interesting Romulans I'd seen in some time. He actually made them seem like bada**es. Early apologies to horatio, but these would be my second favorite Romulans after the TOS era. TNG Romulans were okay, but not this menacing.

I guess lumping all those guys into one thread will get more appreciation than they would singly.

they were all brilliant but did you not think Eric's Nero was a weak villian.
