It's May, and it's the beginning of summer. We've had our first tastes of summer sun, first strolls through Central (or whichever) Park, and our first viewings of the year's most blockbusteriest films (I may have made that word up, but I like it :)
So let's say you're an actor, living in Los Angeles, and it's audition season. Your agent calls you up. You got an audition for the "Star Trek" reboot! You also got an audition for the "Terminator" reboot! Holy Shit!
And then, what what what? You book them both???
Probably sounds like an actor's wet dream. Because it is. And this year it happened for Anton Yelchin!
On May 5th, we saw him on the big screen as "Chekov" in the Star Trek reboot. F'reals, he was pretty flawless. The accent, the excitement... Perfection.
And then on May 21st we saw him AGAIN as "Kyle Reese" in the Terminator reboot. Now I don't really know a lot about that series or his characters importance (other than the obvious father of the prophet thing). I didn't have a lot of high expectation for the movie and ended up kinda loving it! Not purely because of him, but he was definitely a huge part of it.
A lot of people are talking about how Chris Pine is going to break out of the summer extravaganza as the star to watch. I don't disagree that he is someone to watch, but if you ask me? Anton Yelchin is going to be right up there with him.
He is DEFINITELY having the Best. Month. EVER.
