Nolan North, everyone's favourite "I'll pop up absolutely everywhere as a voice in videogames" personality has just finished shooting a small part for Star Trek 2, sequel to the successful modern reboot of the classic Star Trek from J.J. Abrams.
"The reason I did that movie -- it's a very small role -- but it's because he and his son are huge fans of Uncharted," North told Eurogamer recently. "I met him doing some work on Super 8 and he said 'We're doing Start Trek, you wanna do it?' And I said I'd love to.
"He's a huge fan of gaming and he was telling me how people just don't understand [games] yet, but they're going to catch up," he added. "They don't understand how amazing this technology is and it doesn't get the respect it deserves, but if it keeps making the money it makes you're going to see more and more people converted.
"I mean, Gary Oldman, one of the greatest actors on the planet, did Call of Duty. He wouldn't have done it 10 years ago. It's a new age dawning, and I'm just really proud to be part of it."
North's most recent role is Captain Martin Walker in Spec Ops: The Line, a psychologically twisted shooter set in a sand-ravaged Dubai that takes many cues from films such as Apocalypse Now and Full Metal Jacket.
Star Trek 2 is set to hit cinemas early 2013.
