This. If they can recast Kirk and Spock and make the Enterprise look different, Khan can be played by someone else too.

Unless of course you only see him frozen in his pod for two seconds and then it gets blown up or something.

CGI Arnie's body was actually another, younger bodybuilder -- Roland Kickinger.

Maybe if we can get some of Ricardo Montalbans DNA (off a hair brush?) and some Temporal RNA we can create a clone which will undergo rapid ageing that could be ready in time for a third Trek movie?
Yea, this is a much better idea then the CGI route

That sounds like the kind of lame brained idea that could only be cooked up by a Toon.

At the rate it's taking them to get these films out, you probably wouldn't even need the rapid aging.

I'd rather see Kermit the Frog play Khan than a CGI RM

Just hire an actor. He doesn't have to look like Montalban.

I suppose it could be thought a CGI Khan might better help general audiences get it but if they don't know the name then they won't understand the face.

New actor. Doesn't really matter though, it's not Khan.

^Yeah, really, I doubt that "general audiences" today would know who Ricardo Montalban was. Even if they did, they probably wouldn't see him as a draw.

But he has to look like Khan, in the same way that Montalban fitted the image that Gene L. Coon and Carey Wilber conceived of.

It's the same reason why each of the new actors in the roles of Kirk and co. were chosen as much because of their resemblances and similar features to their predecessors, as their talent.
