Benedict Cumberbatch to play Star Trek II villain for JJ Abrams
SHERLOCK fans rejoice, even more of Benedict Cumberbatch is coming to you.
Variety, Hollywood reporter and pretty much everyone has the news this morning that he has signed on to the second of the Star Trek films for Abrams playing a villan. Rumors up to a very short time ago had Benicio Del Toro signing on as the villan and a lot of those rumors were that he would be playing Khan.
Still no solid information on who Cumberbatch will be playing or even if it’s a human or alien villan for the crew of the Enterprise. The film is set for release on May 17, 2013.
He will join Doctor Who’s Noel Clarke as well as Alice Eve and Peter Weller who have already been cast
