Winona Ryder in Star Trek?
I really am confused about this new Star Trek film from J.J. Abrams, I've been going back and forth between good and bad idea for ages now, and this latest news just pushes me back into the bad idea camp.
Winona Ryder has signed up to play the wife of Sarek, or as you'll know that character better, the mother of Spock, Amanda Grayson.
Now just to recap, Spock is half human and half vulcan, so the mother would undoubtedly be human, so no pointy ears for Ryder.
It seems a strange choice, and I realise that actors act roles so there's nothing to say that she can't pull this off, but there's a part of me wondering if she's going to fit into the film and if we're not all just going to be watching her going “oh there's Winona Ryder”.
The story comes from IESB who also have a full biography of the character of Amanda Grayson, and it contains some complex storyline time travelling and erasing timelines.
