Karl Urban Talks ‘Star Trek 2’


Karl Urban, who played Dr. Leonard McCoy in JJ Abrams version of Star Trek, recently spoke about what he would like to see in Star Trek 2. Referencing the first film he said, “The structure wasn’t really the traditional triumvirate that you’ve seen on the television show. It was really more a movie about establishing everybody. I certainly hope that [screenwriters] Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman and J.J. [Abrams, the first film’s director] continue to strengthen and evolve those characters into those directions.”

On the sequel he says, “I would love to play scenes being essentially Kirk’s moral compass or point of conscience. The way McCoy was written he really sort of verbalized the war going on in Kirk’s conscience, and I certainly would love to see more arguments of passion versus logic with Spock because they’re always fun. So it’s going to be really interesting to see what they come up with. I think the challenge is to come up with the most important mission, the mission that literally tears these people apart. The mission that is the definitive Trek mission. We have to come up with something akin to a Dark Knight or The Empire Strikes Back. Something like that.”
