UPDATED - Beam me up, Shaunnie

And continuing our Star Trek news-train this week, Simon Pegg, the British comedian of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz fame has been cast as constantly-beleaguered Enterprise engineer Montgomery "Scotty" Scott. To be honest, Pegg would never even have occurred to me for Scotty, and I'd figured the role would go to Stargate: Atlantis doc Paul McGillion, but I can dig it.

Oh, and Harold (as in "& Kumar") is the new Sulu. Oh my.

Read all about it here.

UPDATE: And here's a nice compare-and-contrast of the new actors and their TOS forebears, with two rather large "Kirk" and "McCoy" sized holes yet to be filled. Click the pic to enlarge.
