Another Scot for Scotty?

PaulMcGillion.jpgPaul McGillion is an actor who is probably most recognisable for being in Stargate Atlantis, if you stuck with the Stargate franchise that long, and today the rumours are around the Interflab that he has auditioned for the role of Scotty in the new Star Trek.

Instead of being a Canadian actor pretending to be Scottish, Paul McGillion is actually a Scottish actor who moved to Canada, so there's a nice connection there for fans of James Doohan, the original Scotty, and to boot he's also really Scottish!

At the moment the rumour from TrekMovie.com through Sci Fi Wire is out that he's auditioned, nothing is confirmed, but Chris Doohan has reportedly said that he's a good choice for the character.

We'll have to see what Abrams decides for Star Trek, and if the previous story of the Kirk casting is true too.
