Although production on JJ Abrams’ Star Trek franchise reboot is currently underway (see our recent report on the first spy photos of Zachary Quinto as Spock), it seems as if we are still not done with casting announcements.
The latest actor to be announced as having joined the film is Ben Cross, who will be playing the part of Sarek, Vulcan diplomat and father of Spock. Cross is best known for his starring role in the 1981 Academy Award-winning film Chariots Of Fire.
Cross confirmed the news on his website.
Star Trek flies into theaters Christmas 2008.
