STAR TREK 2 - DOCTOR WHO's Noel Clarke Joins Cast

Noel Clarke has joined the cast of J.J. Abrams' Star Trek sequel. Variety is reporting that the British actor-director has joined franchise newcomers Alice Eve and Peter Weller. Clarke currently can be seen on BBC's hit series Doctor Who. Paramount plans to release the highly-anticipated sequel on May 17, 2013.

Not much is known about his role at this time, but the report states that Clarke is going to play "a family man with a wife and young daughter." The film will be directed by Abrams based on a script by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Damon Lindelof. 

Clarke marks the third British actor in the cast, including both Eve and Simon Pegg. Clarke penned and co-starred in Kidulthood (which can be seen on Netflix). He then went on to write, direct and star in its 2008 sequel, Adulthood. He also wrote, directed, produced and starred alongside Emma Roberts in the heist film 4.3.2.1. Clarke also starred in Neil Marshall's Centurion and the Andy Serkis-starring Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll.
I think Clarke is a solid addition to the cast, and can not wait to learn more about this film. I know it is a long way off, but Star Trek 2 is one movie I am excited to see. What are your thoughts?
