Rosario Dawson Wants a Role in Star Trek 2
Posted 11.21.10 by Ryan
Rosario Dawson really wants a role in Star Trek 2. The actress admitted her abounding Trek love in a recent interview with Collider.
I love J.J. [Abrams] — I got a whole petition that’s been going on on Twitter that I could maybe be in the next film. Like, just a Klingon, something, like anything at one point, [and] just go out there and say "Qapla" or something; and then I’d be happy, I’d be very, very satisfied.
Despite appearing in Unstoppable with Captain Kirk himself, Chris Pine, Dawson admitted she was "very good at hiding it from him" during production. "I've accosted a few other members [of the Star Trek cast]," said Dawson. "And I know Zoe [Saldana] really well, so I could gush to her, but I was trying to keep it cool with Chris and now the cat's out of the bag."
Dawson told THR that Pine found out the truth while he and Dawson were doing press for Unstoppable.
Then Chris asked me, "Are you a Trekkie?" That's when I geeked out on him. He was like "Word, wow, you are." But I was proud of myself for keeping it to myself.
Dawson also kept her love for all things Trek when she took the same flight as Abrams. "We flew on the same flight together, but we ended up talking about politics and t-shirts," Dawson revealed, and went on to admit she would make "one sexy vulcan." Dawson's next movie, the internet-only Girl Walks into a Bar, co-stars Zachary Quinto. "I'm working it," said Dawson.
