This week, I had the absolute pleasure of speaking with Jason Bell of Star Trek Beyond. A combat veteran who served in Afghanistan, he has had roles in shows like Arrow, The Flash, Smallville, and Once Upon A Time. He’s been an unsung double in many of your favorite movies as well, such as Man of Steel, Godzilla, X-Men Days of Future Past, and Deadpool. In addition to excelling at stunt work, he’s also a certified PADI diver, and he plays delta blues guitar in his spare time. You can currently see him as Captain Kirk’s right-hand man in Star Trek Beyond, out July 22. Check out the hilariously entertaining interview after the jump!
Star Trek Into Darkness is official released into theaters next week on May 17th. One of the most highly anticipated movies of the year is sure to be a blockbuster. To help ensure the film’s success, the cast is making the rounds and visiting various press outlets. The most recent, and probably our favorite, is this one. It’s not news that I happen to love Simon Pegg so I’m thrilled to post video of his appearance this week on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
One of the biggest stories to come out of filming the movie is the epic prank on newcomer Benedict Cumberbatch that the entire cast and crew was in on. Simon tells the story better than I could so check out these videos of what happens when you convince an actor he’s in desperate need of neutron cream.

We are officially under a month away from the release of what is sure to be a blockbuster hit: Star Trek Into Darkness. If, for some reason, you aren’t sure yet if you want to see this movie and the trailers depicting the epic battle ahead aren’t enough for you, we now have not one, but two official scenes from the movie. In one clip from Star Trek Into Darkness, besides having the guys in skin tight uniforms and Scotty being terrified of a giant fish, Captain Kirk wonders how far he should go to save a crew member.

Darkness is coming. I am getting so excited about this movie. Benedict Cumberbatch is really creeping me out as the main villain and I’m happy this trailer includes a new clip featuring Simon Pegg as Scotty. The new movie looks packed full of action and awesomeness.
