We were recently at the DVD launch party for the summer blockbuster Star Trek, which is currently available on DVD and Blu-ray shelves now. Among the many actors we spoke with at the event was Bruce Greenwood, who played Captain Pike in the film. He revealed that he'd like to appear in Star Trek 2, but isn't sure it will happen.

"I know they're writing the film right now, but I'm not sure if we'll see Pike or not," Greenwood said. "He was mainly there to bring Kirk aboard the Enterprise and it's hard to say if he'll be popping up in the sequel."

Greenwood also spoke about his history with the series and what he learned from his predecessors who played Captain Pike in the past.

"I did go back and look at Jeffrey Hunter's performance in the original series," Greenwood said about his preperation for the role. "This is obviously a very different kind of Star Trek, but it was nice to see the history of the character unfold."

Keep an eye out for our video interviews with Greenwood and many more in the coming days. You can pick up Star Trek on DVD and Blu-ray right now.

Star Trek Into Darkness was released May 17th, 2013 and stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Benedict Cumberbatch, Anton Yelchin. The film is directed by J.J. Abrams.

    Like Leonard Nimoy, I hope Bruce Greenwood returns for a future installment at some point.

    Double agreed lol. Not really any real reason for him to be in the sequel since Kirk is has now taken his place.

    Bruce Greenwood is such a great actor. Very under the radar, but always commands a great performance in all his films.
