Beam Me Up James? Star Trek XI Casting Rumor January 27, 2007 3:00 pm

According to the British tabloid Sunday Mail, James McAvoy may be given the role of Montgomery “Scotty” Scott in the upcoming film Star Trek XI.

“They think he could form a brilliant double act with Matt. James’ star is on the rise after The Last King of Scotland. He’s Scottish and has box office appeal so he fulfils both criteria.”

Paramount for its part declined to confirm or deny the rumor, saying: “We are very excited about the film. Casting is in the early stages – we cannot comment on any names yet.”

There is no truth to the rumor that James McAvoy is set to star as Scotty, but sources close to Bad Robot say that the son of James Doohan, Chris Doohan is being considered.
