At a panel for the animated movie “Quantum Quest,” the new Captain Kirk, Chris Pine, called co-director Dr. Harry Kloor, who promptly put his cellphone up to the microphone — so that Pine could address the crowd and promote the movie.
Pine went over points including his desire to be a voiceover actor (“Cause they always looked like they were having the most fun.”), the funny faces he made while in the voiceover booth, and his newfound respect and interest in science because of his participation in the movie (“If I had had a movie like this when I was younger, I may have been more into it.”)
The panel included Robert Picardo of “Star Trek Voyager” and Doug Jones of many things (“Hellboy”). The movie itself is a star-studded event that includes the voices of William Shatner (when Kirks collide!), Jason Alexander, Samuel L. Jackson, Hayden Christensen, Amanda Peet, James Earl Jones, and astronaut Neil Armstrong. The notoriously reclusive Armstorng even sent along a video supporting both the movie and advancements in scienctific education.
