A true nerd dream comes true. Star Trek: Beyond director, Justin Lin, has praised the performance of Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon who has achieved every Trekker dream in appearing in the most recent offering of the rebooted franchise as the an alien.
Producer J.J Abrams and Justin Lin confirmed his appearance in interviews on Friday, Lin commenting on his performance:
“He was awesome, it was like a president was visiting, you know? He had a big entourage. But it didn’t matter because he was so into it. He had to wait around all day because it was one day we were shooting like three different scenes and, it was also credit to Jeff because … he just nailed it every time”.
