I want Ed Asner as Scotty:

Fresh from Ocean’s 13 and The Departed, [Matt] Damon is pegged for the role of a young Captain James T. Kirk, previously played by the Shat-tastic William Shatner.

Meanwhile, Oscar winner [Adrian] Brody (King Kong, The Pianist) is slated for the role of Mr. Spock, which was immortalized by Leonard Nimoy, and CSI: New York’s [Gary] Sinise could revive the cranky Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy (made famous by DeForrest Kelley).

Also, this week Lost creator J.J. Abrams announced he will direct the film.
