Kirk's Brother And Uncle In 'Star Trek' Deleted Scenes

Kirk's Brother And Uncle In 'Star Trek' Deleted ScenesKirk's Brother And Uncle In 'Star Trek' Deleted Scenes

Young Kirk actor Jimmy Bennett tells SciFi Wire that both Kirk's brother George and Uncle Frank were cut from the theatrical release of J.J. Abrams 'Star Trek. Don't fret, according to Jimmy, both scenes will be in the the blu-ray release November 17th.

"There was a part that was a little confusing," Bennett said in a group interview over the weekend in Beverly Hills, Calif., where he was promoting Shorts. "The kid that I waved to when I was driving was actually my brother, and I wish that they would have [included] that scene. Because people were like, 'Who was that kid that you were waving to?'"

Bennett said that Abrams also shot a scene that involved Kirk's uncle Frank, played by Brad William Henke, which leads up to the sequence with the stolen car in the film and the character's momentary on-screen acknowledgement of his brother. "They ended up cutting out a scene where my brother runs away and I get in a fight with my uncle," Bennett said.

"I end up taking his car," Bennett continued. "Because I was washing it or whatever, and I find the keys in the mirror, and I put it in the ignition, and I just take off. Then that's how my uncle calls my mom, so that's kind of how that worked."

By the time the final cut of the film hit theaters, "Uncle Frank" had transformed into a stepdad voiced (on a car speakerphone) by Greg Grunberg. At least that's how we think it played out. (source SciFi Wire)
