Star Trek Casting Breakdowns

From AICN comes the casting breakdowns for Star Trek XI. Basically everyone cast is expected to be (or look) in their mid to late 20s. The top five of the Enterprise bridge crew are also in the cast - Kirk, McCoy, Uhura, Sulu, and Scotty. I imagine Chekov was left out because if they are honoring Trek "canon" then he would probably just be entering high school and therefore not Starfleet. Based on those ages, all of them would be either have just graduated from Starfleet or finishing a first tour on a ship when the movie events take place.

The breakdowns:
Feature Film

[JAMES KIRK] 23-29 Handsome,cocky self assured and earnest. Great physical condition. 6 ft or less

[LEONARD(BONES)MCOY] -28-32 Medic on the Enterprise. Smart, clever and a bit danger-loving. Dark hair, blue eyes.

[UHURA] 25ish -African American. Brilliant, beautiful, heroic and FUN!, Uhura is almost tom-boyish - as if she grew up in a houseful of brothers.

[SULU] 25-32 -Asian American male (preferably Japanese). Helmsman on the Enterprise. Extremely fit, capable and dedicated. A bit of a wildcat

[MONTGOMERY(SCOTTY) SCOTT] -28-32 a brilliant ship's engineer. Must be able to do a flawless Scottish accent!
