Anton Yelchin's Role Will Not Be Re-Cast in 'Star Trek' Series
Anton Yelchin will be making one of his final appearances on screen in the upcoming film Star Trek Beyond and his role of Chekov will not be re-cast for the series.
“I would say there’s no replacing him,” JJ said. “There’s no re-casting. I can’t possibly imagine that, and I think Anton deserves better.”
Anton died on June 19 in a freak accident after his Jeep rolled down his driveway and crushed him against a gate.
