We first learned about Michael Dorn's efforts to get a Worf-centered Star Trek movie or television show into development nearly a year ago, and even though nothing has come of it yet, Dorn is still optimistic.
Make It So
In 1987, Star Trek re-launched the franchise with a whole new series, Star Trek: The Next Generation. Not only did TNG show us the next generation of characters in the Star Trek saga, it brought in the next generation of Star Trek fans who would grow up with the series. I was just a little kid sitting on the couch between my original-Trekker parents when the show premiered. I never imagined that, twenty-five years later, I would be in the room with the entire cast as they reminisced about their TNG experiences at Grand Slam XVIII. Here are some of the best moments from the reunion.
Meanwhile...I'm writing more articles these days about Star Trek: The Next Generation actor Michael Dorn than I ever expected. He's hopeful for a Worf spin-off ,and is busy with a Kickstarter for a romcom filled with Trek actors, but the latest news is he's got a role in the Castlevania movie. There's a Castlevania movie? Probably?
Make It SoI don't know about you but Worf was one of the best characters to come out of Star Trek: The Next Generation. I was glad he continued on to Deep Space Nine but since the TNG films wrapped, there's some serious Woft withdrawal on my part. That's why I'm so excited actor Michael Dorn is trying to figure out if he can get the green light for his own spin-off! Read on for some details.

Apparently he did it by expressing his love for the franchise in the most unlikely of places: The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The View.
He was on the shows more than a year ago, promoting a movie, but while he was on Ellen he gifted his host with an Xbox and a copy of Fallout 3, saying:
I played this video game so often that I injured my hand so severely that I had to go to a hand doctor and get injections in my hand because I love this video game so much.
Apparently all that dedication (and subsequent publication of said dedication) paid off, because he'll be voicing Benny, the head of the Geckos family in Fallout: New Vegas.
