Home Movies Tragedy: “Star Trek” Actor Anton Yelchin, 27, Dies in Freak Home Accident

It’s the same story everywhere. Anton Yelchin, 27, and one of the bright promising lights of Hollywood’s future, is dead. He died apparently in a freak home accident, getting pinned between his running car and his mailbox. You don’t even know what to say.

Tributes are pouring in. I met Anton and interviewed him for the very good Drake Doremus movie “Like Crazy.” He co-starred with Felicity Jones and seemed wise beyond his years– and this was five years ago, he was only 22. As the new young Chekov in “Star Trek” he was a huge sensation, and had so much potential. Condolences to his family and friends. Tragic.
