Did you know Bill Hader did a voice in J.J. AbramsStar Trek Into Darkness?  And did you know he recorded it just a short time before the film was released?  While I’d heard about it through a friend of mine, I’d never heard the real story from Hader himself.  So when I got to speak to him backstage at D23 earlier today, I made sure to ask him about it.  In addition, he talked about how taking a personal tour of Pixar led to him landing roles in some of their upcoming films, the upcoming season of South Park, SNL, plus future film projects, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.
