Fanboy Fix: The Missing Shatner 'Trek' Cameo, More 'Deathly Hallows' Set Photos and the Star Wars Soundboard

So you know how the old Spock, Leonard Nimoy, made a special appearance in the new Star Trek film as a sort of torch-passer to the next generation. Well, originally William Shatner was also supposed to also show up – albeit in a smaller role – and it was because that role was small that kept him away from appearing. Shatner, while entirely lovable and huggable, is also very egotistical. So, yeah, naturally he wanted something bigger, but eventually both sides parted ways.

In a new interview with Trek writers Roberto Orco and Alex Kurtzman, they tell MTV what that Shatner scene was supposed to be – that it was meant to come at the very end when Old Spock is talking to New Spock. In the scene, Old Spock was sent to present a hologram message to the New Spock, and that hologram was supposed to feature Shatner sending his final message to an old friend. Might have been a cool little cameo, but alas – Shatner is Shatner, and he’s a difficult dude to deal with at times. Head on over to MTV to read a description of the entire missing scene.

More 'Deathly Hallows' Set Photos

A whole new group of set photos from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One have found their way over to Coming Soon, and they show a bunch of the actors on the Shell Cottage set in Pembrokeshire. Along with Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, we have our first look at Helena Bonham Carter as Bellatrix Lestrange. Check out one photo below, and the rest over here.

Remember, the last Harry Potter novel will be split into two movies, with the first half of Deathly Hallows hitting theaters on November 19, 2010 and part two one year later.

Freak Out Your Stormtrooper Pal with the Star Wars Soundboard

"I recognized your foul stench when I was brought onboard."

If you’re like me, nothing on the internet amuses you anymore. You’re bored, looking for something to occupy a little of your fanboy time, and you will in no way rule out playing with random audio from a Star Wars movie. That’s a good thing because there’s a site called the Star Wars Soundboard that actually houses a whole series of dialogue (human and Chewbacca-ish) from the films and then offers you, our bored internet surfer, the ability to create your own Weird and Creepy Star Wars-Related Character Mix Track.

Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself.
