He’s a terrific actor who usually gets the ‘him out of that’ response, but Bruce Greenwood looks locked on to return as Admiral Pike in J.J. Abrams STAR TREK sequel due to begin shooting next year. ..................
Writer and producer Robert Orci has confirmed Greenwood’s father-like character has been written into the script and even commented:-We wrote a part for Greenwood. Let us hope he says Yes!
Greenwood has had major starring roles in the likes of DOUBLE JEOPARDY, THE CORE and I, ROBOT.
He also appeared in J.J. Abrams ‘Spielberg homage’ SUPER 8, although you would have struggled to see him on screen as his performance was that of extraterrestrial ‘Cooper’ – in motion-capture.
