There's only one word that he'd have to say:

Wait. So, you're telling me Marky Mark can read?

Holy sh*t!

If you're already making millions why learn a cannon that extensive?

Getting stone and making Ted 2 vs watching every Star Trek series...  Lemme think.

This could explain his appearance in The Happening.

Why would he have to do any of that to read lines already written for him in a part that was like 4 minutes long?

The better actors were wearing ape costumes.  Tim Roth, Michael Clarke Duncan, Paul Giamatti, Helena Bonham Carter..

Who would have thought that being a rapper in the late 80's/ early 90's was a great way to launch a successful acting career...ice t, ice cube, ll cool j, Marky Mark, Will Smith. Seemingly none of them really cared about the shiatty music they made, rap was merely a vehicle to parlay their fame into more lucrative activities.

Look who's white.

Say what you will about Top 40 crossovers like Marky Mark and Will Smith, but Ice-T, especially Ice Cube, and to a lesser degree LL Cool J, made some great music.

I actually agree with this - despite being whiter than the moon if it was made of powdered sugar and cocaine, that era had pretty decent hip-hop/rap/whatever the fark it's called.

A bit more OT: I can't see Marky Mark in Star Trek. Even JJ Trek.

A bit less OT: Mmmmmm...Zoe Saldana.

I still can't get over his Graham Norton interview a few weeks ago. I'm sorry that was not just alcohol. He had to have been on E. He kept touching everyone. I about died when he got on Graham's lap and started feeling him up. It's no wonder he's having a hard time with a Trek script.

Plus, didn't Ice Cube take the part in Boyz N The Hood primariy to help it get made? At the time, he was probably the most famous cast member. Gooding was still relatively obscure and Fishburne's most noted role as an adult was Pee Wee's playhouse.

Totally read that in his voice

/I like Mark Wahlberg, there I said it. I think it's good he isnt going to be in a Star Trek movie. Im sure he reminds fanbois of the guy who used to give them swirlies in high school.

Fun fact of the day:  When he was younger Marky Mark was convicted of several hate crimes including blinding a Vietnamese guy in one eye and beating another Vietnamese man while calling him racial epithets.  So yeah, I'm not shocked the guy is a moron.

I seriously doubt Markie Mark is a method actor and most of the dialog was about what to name Kirk.

NEVER call him "Mark Wahlberg".

His name is "Marky-Mark", damnit!!!

With or without the "Funky Bunch", his name is, and will always be, MARKY-MARK!!!

He passed up a minor part in a movie because he couldn't understand 2-3 minutes worth of dialogue?  It's Star Trek gibberish... you're not supposed to understand it.  But who cares.  Abrams got Benedict Cumberbatch to play one of the most iconic villains in cinema history (or his equivalent in this alternative timeline).  That's all I care about.

Haha! I hate that line in star wars. Natalie Portman should have gone.... "OK, a thousand is enough. That's bad." ORRRRR "Really? I'm not even mad. That's amazing!"

Thankfully Haiden Christensen shouldn't be getting anymore work ever again. No more ruined franchises for you! Not yours!

It was easier to transition from "The Rock" to "Duane Johnson" than it ever was to go from "Marky-mark and the Funky Bunch" to "Mark Wahlberg".
