Tom Cruise may join Star Trek as first Enterprise captain
According to a report from IGN, actor Tom Cruise is in talks to join the cast of the latest Star Trek film as Christopher Pike, the first captain of the Enterprise before Captain Kirk.
The new film, which is going by the code name Star Trek XI at Paramount, is being directed by J.J. Abrams, a personal friend of Cruise. The report says Cruise would do the role – a brief cameo, as a favor to Abrams despite his animosity with Paramount.
Last year, Cruise was “fired” from his production deal with Paramount after the star became too controversial for the studio due to his preaching of some of the more bizarre preachings of his Scientology beliefs.
