Anton Yelchin, actor in 'Star Trek' films, dies in freak car accident at age 27

Dies after getting pinned against his driveway gate.

I liked him and thought he was a pretty good actor. Not a star, but brought something to every role I saw him play. RIP.

That said, I imagine they'll just recast Chekov, assuming they make an ST4. It would be odd to give him an offscreen death. He's not the first, certainly not the best, Chekov. He's not irreplaceable, as cold as that sounds.

Sad story.

Yes its sad, he was so young, I sure hope he didn't suffer. I feel sorry for his family.

RIP Anton

I don't think I had seen much of his work outside of the newer Star Trek movies, but he really did a fantastic job in those. RIP.
