According to WENN, Tom Cruise is in negotiations to play a cameo role in the upcoming J.J. Abrams STAR TREK film. Cruise and Abrams recently teamed together for MI3.
It’s not known what role Cruise might play, but a Starfleet Academy instructor seems to be a likely choice.
According to other reports, Abrams is currently auditioning actors for the roles of a young Scotty and young Bones in the film.
This would be odd, but I welcome it.
