Eric Bana as Nero in 'Star Trek'

After a close-up of the snarling, tattooed Romulan bad boy in J.J. Abrams' 21st Century "Star Trek" (ours, not theirs ...) you can't imagine anyone else who would have embodied that perfect blend of menace and moxy. Vengeance personified, Bana matched, and almost outfoxed, Spock's smarts and Kirk's bravado. He was the wicked endgame that made it so delicious to have the USS Enterprise and crew resurrected and back ... to boldly go where no man has gone before.
