Any explanation in the film why Khan is suddenly a pale Brit with a low voice?
It's been done.



Oh. A credible example in a widely-appreciated film.

Might as well include Richard Pryor as the lead in SOME KIND OF HERO, too. That was casting against type of the kind making Joel Grey's asian in REMO WILLIAMS look politically correct.
It was a joke. I was deliberately posting a ridiculous example from a movie I hated.

I could not care less about Benjamin Cumberbatch's skin tone in the movie. All I care about is his performance, which from everything I've seen so far looks to be outstanding.
