IMO the evidence is mounting up. He says he's returned
Cumberbatch is Cyrano Jones!!! He's returned from picking up all those Tribbles on the K-7 Space Station and now he wants to destroy Starfleet from the inside out.... He's the new snack vendor for Starfleet. You eat a Mento, take a swig of Diet Coke and you 'detonate' (explode).
Or he's Arne Darvin putting exploding Tribbles on every ship!

At this late date why does IMBd still say Khan, if he isn't Khan this is ridiculous, it should be known what the name of the villain is, this close to release.

IMDB is not reliable when it comes to movies in development. People post info based on rumors and speculation.

Heck, the IMDB page for The Dark Knight Rises had Matthew Modine playing a character named "Nixon" forever, when the script always refered to him as "Foley." It had the name of Selina's sidekick wrong, too.

I've written enough movie novelizations to know that IMDB is not to be trusted until the movie actually opens.

And "close to release"? It's barely December. The movie is more than six months away . . . .

Re: Is Cumberbatch playing Colonel Green?

My pet theory du jour is that you can tell who Cumby is playing by thinking whether his looks and accent fit the part.

Khan - no, he needs to be darker skinned, tan at least, have an Indian accent or at least close, and be very handsome and muscular, a walking advertisement for the wonders of genetic engeering

Mitchell - mmmmaybe...but some all American type, a la Pine, would be a more obvious way to go

Green - no, he should be a military badass

Gary Seven - nah, Peter Weller is more the type

Sam Kirk - why in Gort's name would Jim's brother have a British accent and also look nothing like him?

de-turtlefied Klingon - not badass enough

oversized Tribble - not furry enough

Oh, careful. Some people don't like it when you use words like that.
