Some of us already did. He was awesome as Stephen Hawking way back, in 2004.


And then, there's, of course, Sherlock.

And Peter Guillam in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. He'll probably return in the sequel, Smiley's People, considering the character returns as well in John le Carre's novels.

This interview may confirm what he said http://www.aintitcool.com/node/56985

Still not convinced though... Good show, JJ. I have absolutely no idea now who is the villain.

Maybe you won't even know who the villain is after you've seen the whole film.

What, did Rambaldi achieve immortality or something?

I gave up on that retarded show early in.

Quite possible. But i'll still be thinking that Khan was involved somehow....

I'm still thinking Cumberbatch is playing Khan and Peter Weller is playing an advanced age Gary Seven who seeks out Kirk to capture Khan.

I can definitely see Weller portraying Gary Seven, but I really, really hope that Cumberbund isn't playing Khan. Personally, I think Urban really did let the cat out of the bag by accident, hence his back-peddling now. Based on what I've seen of BC's acting thus far, I think Mitchell would be a good match for him, especially a Mitchell who's ESP has turned him into a super-human of some sort. Plus, I think Mitchell as the 'bad guy' is more interesting than doing Khan again, simply because of his friendship and history with Kirk.

My guess as to what role Weller is really playing would be an operative of Section 31. I could be wrong, but I think it would fit with the potential Mitchell storyline.

But does he still have that same history with Kirk due to the differences in the timeline?

Plus, I think it would be weird for them to try and remake Where No Man... yet again after already doing it in the comic. I'm not sure there are too many different ways to tell that particular story.

Re: Urban outs the villain. Maybe.

I guess that you could always go down the road of Gary Mitchell being a genetically engineered agent of Section 31 who went rogue?

But you'd lose much of the back story with Kirk and it really wouldn't resemble any of the events of Where No Man.... In a case like that, you're simply recycling the name as nothing there really resembles the character that came before.
