Actor Tramples On Trekkers’ Dreams

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actor James Cromwell is best known for his roles as Farmer Hoggett in Babe and Zefram Cochran in Star Trek: First Contact, and, in real life, he’s an E.T. fan in real life.

Cromwell says he believes crop circles are more than a hoax and he also planned to write a sci-fi novel, but says he never got around to it.

Despite his love affair with E.T.s and his Star Trek background, he says Trekkers probably won’t see his face at any conventions any time soon.

He used to tell Star Trek fans that if they really want to know if E.T.s are real they should write the President and ask him to lift the security clearances on all the people who could disclose the Roswell case.

Cromwell says after that, he was never asked to a Star Trek convention because in his words, “the fans don’t want to know if it’s real.”

For now, Cromwell is looking forward to the DVD release of his English comedy about lawn bowling, Blackball, which comes out on Feb. 15 and screens in various college cities around the U.S. starting today (Feb. 11).
