Simon Pegg On STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS' Scotty And John Harrison

Simon Pegg on the 'Scottishness' of Scotty and the media and fan fascination with Benedict Cumberbatch's John Harrison. "Scotty is still very proud, and he thinks he owns the ship," says Pegg.




Scotty STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS

Simon Pegg (Hot Fuzz) says Montgomery "Scotty" Scott is, "still very proud, and he thinks he owns the ship. He’s very principled, and those principles define his role in the film." As the ship's engineer, one could make the case that it is Scotty's ship so to speak. Discussing one of the finer points of his character, the actor revealed that J.J. Abrams (Lost, Super 8) allowed him to inject some Scottish jargon into the script but later decided to scale it back, "J.J. lets me put Scotishisms into the script. But one day he came up to me on the set and said, ‘Simon, we have to understand what you are saying!" So I pulled it back a little bit." Maybe these scenes will make it onto the blu-ray extras? As for Benedict Cumberbatch's (Sherlock) John Harrison or more precisely, the true identity of John Harrison, Pegg shared, "It’s been fun seeing people try to figure out who he is playing and all the time it just being a very simple answer. John Harrison is indicative of a thing going on in society today, which is the enemy within. Not…a multi-horned alien or another country or whatever. It’s the idea that the threat can be one of us and can come from inside." Pegg gave us a fairly humorous introduction to Scotty in the 2009 Star Trek film but a brief glimpse in the latest international trailer has revealed that he'll be getting in on the action this time around. Star Trek Into Darkness hits U.S. theaters May 17, 2013.
