Simonpegg_lWe’ve already discussed how the new Star Trek trailer has many here at the E-Dub all with the goosebumples. But there’s something that’s been buggin’ me ever since I clicked over to Apple.com’s trailer page for J.J. Abrams’ impending re-envisioning of the durable sci-fi classic: Is it just me, or does the photo of Simon Pegg (pictured, left) as Scotty from that page (pictured, center) look more like a photo of a young Yul Brynner, circa The Magnificent Seven, after sitting on a thumb tack (pictured, right)?
