Peter Weller has joined J.J. Abrams' next "Star Trek" movie.
Details about Weller's character aren't being revealed quite yet, but Weller has "Star Trek" experience, having played John Frederick Paxton on two episodes of "Star Trek: Enterprise" in 2005.
The Paxton character is the murderous leader of radical group Terra Prime, which advocates expelling all non-humans from earth and the entire solar system.
The movie is a sequel to Abrams' 2009 successful Star Trek (2008) reboot, which starred Chris Pine as James T. Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Spock, Zoe Saldana as Nyota Uhura and Anton Yelchin as Pavel Chekov. Those actors all are returning, joined by Alice Eve in a new role.
