Earlier today, right before Stephen Collins took the WonderCon stage to promote NBC’s Revolution, I was able to participate in a group interview backstage.  While I’m sure NBC wanted me to focus on the show, with Collin’s great resume, I had to ask about some of his previous projects like Brewster’s Millions with Richard Pryor and Star Trek: The Motion Picture.  Thankfully, Collins was more than happy to talk about both, revealing what it was like working with Pryor and what DeForest Kelly told him while making Star Trek.  In addition, Collins talked about Star Trek’s reception at the box office and with critics.   Of course, he also talked about what fans can look forward to on the last four episodes of Revolution, teasing a huge action set piece on a steam train and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch.
