Creative incest this would have been.

Having the same director for both Trek and Wars is already enough. Do they also have to share the actors? That's silly.

There are 100,000 unemployed actors in Hollywood. Give other people a chance.
If they're right for the part and do a good job, who cares?
Cumberbatch is just the current hot commodity, which is Hollywood has a half-life of one or two years. Unless he really is "it" or has an excellent agent, he will go the way of Matthew McConaughey, Zach Galifianakis, and everyone else who was "the Shizz" and starred in every film for a six month stretch.
McConaughey, you mean that guy who starred in several critically acclaimed movies in 2012, and now is the talk of Hollywood. Yeah, bringing him up isn't helping your argument. Also, comparing Cumberbatch to Zach Galifianakis is just laughably absurd. Scorsese, Nolan, Tarantino, Burton, etc. They ALL like to work with certain actors a lot, JJ is not unique in this regard. In fact, he's done it LESS than the other filmmakers.
