Demian Bichir - Demian Bichir Skipped Star Trek Auditions For Brother's Play

Mexican actor Demian Bichir skipped auditions for J.J. Abrams' upcoming Star Trek sequel so he could perform in his younger brother's play.
Last year (11) the A Better Life Oscar nominee signed on to portray Hollywood producer Buddy Ackerman in a 2012 Mexico City production of Swimming With Sharks, directed by his sibling Bruno.
But Bichir admits the 12-week commitment caused him to miss out on several other opportunities, revealing he lost the chance to play iconic villain Khan in the science fiction film franchise's latest movie.
He tells New York Magazine, "I had a great meeting with J.J. (Abrams), but we couldn't do it at this time, because of the play, and I was getting ready for opening night, so I could not leave the project... But I hope we work together someday, because I absolutely want to work with J.J."
