U.K.'s Sunday Mirror has brought in report stating Scottish actor James McAvoy has won the role of chief engineer Montgomery "Scotty" Scott in "Star Trek."

Speculations on Scottish actor James McAvoy to play Montgomery "Scotty" Scott in "Star Trek" are getting stronger by now as U.K.'s Sunday Mirror has come up with a claim stating the thesp is indeed set to be the Starship Enterprise's chief engineer for the project, which will be the eleventh big screen entry in the hit sci-fi series.

Saying "The Last King of Scotland" star will portray the young version of Scotty, the paper further pointed out that the movie would mark the first time a real Scot portraying the character, known among Trekkies to possess a thick Lowland Scottish accent, being played before by late Canadian actor James Doohan.

"James was up against some famous names. Everyone's delighted to have him on board," a movie insider said.

McAvoy, a native of Glasgow, Scotland, spent his entire childhood and teens in the city where he attended St Thomas Aquinas Secondary and graduated from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. Currently spotted in both "Becoming Jane" and "Penelope", he next can be seen in Joe Wright's romantic drama "Atonement", which is slated for a limited release on December 7 this year.
