In a video interview posted to YouTube by HitFix, Eric Bana talks about preparing for the role of Nero in the 2009 J.J. Abrams film. The interview is from 2009 but is nevertheless interesting if you have yet to seen it.
Bana talks about his initial trepidation, comfort knowing JJ was at the helm, and how he avoids being influenced by a genre before he begin playing a role. He is also asked about the IDW Countdown comic series that fills in the backstory of Nero, and talks about how being in Star Trek brought out the unknown Trekkies around him.
