Chris Doohan, son of the late James “Scotty” Doohan, wants to be considered for the role that made his dad’s name. On his MySpace page, Doohan asks visitors to write or call Paramount Studios to help him get the gig in JJ Abrams’ new Star Trek movie (or failing that a walk on part).
His case goes as follows:
1. I kind of look like my dad.
2. I can do a great scottish accent.
3. We share the last name.
4. I like money.
