The Nacelle Company has wrapped production on That Guy… Who Was in That Thing 3: Trek Stars, the third volume of thier documentary film series that takes a closer look at character actors. For the third installment in the series, Nacelle is focusing on the world of Star Trek, which is obviously right up our alley… not to mention good timing for a fandom and franchise that is at such an exciting time in its history.
That Guy… Who Was in That Thing 3: Trek Starsfeatures actors who have appeared in everything from The Original Series to Discovery, which is no doubt not only an interesting tour through Trek history, but also TV history, considering TOS originally aired in the 1960s and Discovery is happening now. The film includes interviews with everyone from the late Leonard Nimoy to Nichelle Nichols, Rainn Wilson, Christopher Lloyd, Sarah Silverman, Michael Dorn, James Cromwell, Jeri Ryan and more.
The first That Guy… Who Was in That Thing premiered on Showtime in 2012, and was interesting in interviewing working actors, the kind of Hollywood actor who people might refer to as “that guy who was in that thing.” In 2015, That Gal… Who Was In That Thing premiered on Showtime, and included interviews with Catherine Hicks, Alicia Coppola, and Roxanne Hart.
That Guy… Who Was In That Thing: Trek Stars was directed by Ian Roumain (The Toys That Made Us, 50 Years Of Star Trek, Animal Nation with Anthony Anderson) and co-produced alongside Brian Volk-Weiss. Cisco Henson and Ben Frost served as executive producers.
“Anyone who knows me knows that my true love is Star Trek and to be ‘excited’ about this new project is an understatement. LET’S MAKE IT SO!” said Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of The Nacelle Company, of the project.
Weiss is the founder of The Nacelle Company, which develops, produces, and distributes feature and documentary films as well as both scripted and unscripted TV shows. They have worked with Netflix, Amazon, Disney+, HBO, Discovery, A&E Networks, Hulu, Viacom, and many more. We at Den of Geek particularly like their show The Toys That Made Us, and are excited for their upcoming spin-off, The Movies That Made Us.
