Trekmovie.com is reporting that they have finally cast the lead villain in the upcoming and much-anticipated Star Trek sequel.
Director J.J. Abrams has selected the talented and impressively named Benedict Cumberbatch for the role of the man who antagonizes Capt. Kirk and the Enterprise in the summer 2013 release.
Cumberbatch is a real up and comer. I watched the recent three-episode BBC series Sherlock, where he plays Holmes in contemporary London, and he was mesmerizing.
Here's hoping J.J. and company knocks this one out of the galactic park.
