Speaking to BBC News the actor said: "[Star Trek was] amazing. One of the best four months of my life. It was just solid extraordinary fun from beginning to end.
"JJ Abrams is a god. And the rest of the cast and what we were asked to do in the film is blindingly brilliant.
"I adore them all. It was a huge roller-coaster adventure and I can't wait for the world to see the film. I can't tell you anything about it, even what part I am playing."
Abrams is back in the director's chair for the sequel while Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana and Simon Pegg are all reprising their roles.
