When it was announced that J.J. Abrams was rebooting the Star Trek movie, many people were a bit sceptical about how it would turn out, but J.J. did such a fantastic job, that he is preparing to release the sequel Star Trek Into Darkness. The first Star Trek movie was the Hollywood debut of Thor star Chris Hemsworth who had a small role as George Kirk.

Now, The Fighter actor Mark Wahlberg has claimed that he had the chance to appear in Star Trek. Mark says that J.J. Abrams wanted him to play the role of George Kirk but he had to turn down the role, much to his regret now, as he did not understand the script.
Wahlberg told Total Film (via The Playlist), "I remember [J.J. Abrams] asking me to play Captain Kirk’s father in Star Trek.  I tried to read the script, but I couldn’t even—I didn’t understand the words or dialogue or anything, and I said, ‘I couldn’t do this. I think you’re really talented but I couldn’t do it.’ Then I saw the movie and I was like, ‘Holy shit, he did a great job.’"

Star Trek went on to make $383m worldwide, prompting a sequel to be made, which will see the return of much of the cast. Star Trek Into Darkness will see Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana and Simon Pegg all reprise their roles, when the movie is released on May 17 in both the US and the UK.
