You know, I wonder if the statements that were made about the "villain" being a character from TOS season 1 were not in reference to the Cumberbatch character but rather to the Peter Weller character. Maybe he is one of the admirals who occasionally appeared on-screen to deliver orders to Kirk and the Enterprise or someone similar. The statements would then technically still be correct.
Supposedly, Weller was new to canon. But Orci also said that Cumberbatch was from canon, so we'll have to see how that goes.
Well, I posted this in another thread about Weller's character, but it's worth bringing up here: in the most technical sense, if he is playing a Starfleet officer (assuming that "CEO" was a mistake), Robert April would be new to canon.
I remember some of the Lost casting sheets had character descriptions, something like "character who leads a hostile takeover of a corporation" which was obviously not entirely accurate, so being called a 'CEO' probably doesn't literally mean a CEO.
