"I'm totally ecstatic," Saldana told me at the Oscars.
However, she added, "We are going to give him s--t because we don't want him to ever think about leaving just in case we go into a third installment of Star Trek."
As if a third installment isn't going to happen!
Saldana did admit that she wouldn't mind a part in Star Wars.
"I'm getting ready to call them, I tell you that," she said. "I want to be a sexy something, like a princess from another planet."
