Despite the fact that he looks like he’s about 15-years-old, Justin Long has had a relatively lengthy, eclectic career. He’s done horror like Drag Me to Hell and Jeepers Creepers, comedy like Accepted and Idiocracy, and even co-starred with Bruce Willis in a freakin’ Die Hard movie. Sure, it was Live Free or Die Hard, but it’s still a Die Hard movie, even if barely. One of our favorite of his 70 credits on IMDb, however, is still his first, 1999’s Galaxy Quest, and it’s one he has fond memories of as well.
Long is currently on the promotion path, stumping for his new film, Kevin Smith’s Tusk, which opens this weekend and sees the perpetually youthful thespian surgically turned into a walrus. (This premise calls to mind two things, one, The Human Centipede, and that episode of South Park where Kyle’s dad is surgically transformed into a dolphin.) As part of his tour, he did an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit, and as things tend to do on the Internet, the nerdier component too over, and talk soon turned to Galaxy Quest and the possibility of a Galaxy Quest 2.
