Toward the end of the 2009 film "Star Trek," Chris Pine's interpretation of Captain James T. Kirk and Zachary Quinto's version of Spock finally begin to develop their bromance after being at odds for the bulk of the film.
Now the two reunite in the upcoming sequel "Star Trek into Darkness" and Quinto says that it's their relationship that is the heart of the film.
"Homeland" and "Princess Bride" actor Mandy Patinkin has joined the cast of Zach Braff's new film "Wish I Was Here," weeks after the latter star received more than $2.6 million in donations for the movie via an online fundraising campaign on the website Kickstarter.
In the film, Braff will play Aidan Bloom, a 35-year-old struggling actor and family man trying to find himself and home-school his kids. Patinkin, 60, will play his father, Braff said on his Facebook page on Tuesday, alongside a photo of himself with the star.
