It appears that Karl Urban (the new Dr. McCoy) is doing the rounds for CBS’s mini-series Comanche Moon in which he plays a Texas Ranger and of course reporters are using the opportunity to talk Trek. Urban told TV Guide that he is “not allowed to say” whether or not he will be delivering McCoy’s trademark line “I’m a doctor, not a [blank],” but he did talk a bit about the character of McCoy.
From the article:
Urban tells TVGuide.com: “The movie is very, very faithful to the spirit of the original series and the characters that were created in the ’60s.” For example, Urban’s Bones “is the lovable, irascible humanist that he has always been [and] a good friend of Jim Kirk.” That said, he believes “J.J. is going to reinvigorate this franchise in a fresh and exciting way.”
