“Bring in Riker! I’m all over it! I already contacted J.J. [Abrams]; I’ve got my agent trying to stir the pot at Paramount. I would love that job!

Unabashedly, I would be great at that job, and I’d love to do it. We’ll see. I’m trying to keep a lid on how excited I am about the possibility, knowing it’s such a long shot…

…but there’s nothing I’d like better.”
