Thandie for Star Trek?

LT. NYOTA UHURA (Nichelle Nichols), African communications officer and hailing-frequencies opener.
For the gorgeous and talented Uhura, cast the gorgeous and talented Thandie Newton. But only if Abrams gives her something to say besides "Captain, I'm frightened."

I don't know what to think of this one... on one hand, I'd like to see her working, but on the other, I'd prefer much better roles... although if Matt Damon were to be cast, I think they'd have some chemistry....

i'm mixed on this one too. it would be great to see her working in a high profile film, but star trek seems a bit corny.
