Whatever his role, they better be traditional and dub his voice over with an unfitting, accentless American one.

Referring to James Earl Jones' neutral stage-accented deep voice being dubbed over David Prowse's mildly West Country-accented and not-very-deep voice?

Okay. But last time I checked, Vader wasn't an Imperial Admiral nor brought up in the Empire.

Not to mention he was a cyborg and had lost his natural voice.

Besides, weren't all the imperial admiral guys played by English actors? With accents intact?

JOKE PHALE.

If true, Cumberbatch is up for a part as a villain, "a major role that will continue throughout the whole new trilogy" - does this mean no return of Khan in Star Trek XIII? If so, I'm disappointed. He was an excellent Khan, IMO, and I was really hoping STXIII would open with him being thawed for trial and escaping.
Not necessarily, he could be a bad guy only in the next Star Wars movie only to get killed at the end but leave a child behind.

Also, a reference to the fact that most of the Imperial troops and other secondary characters (Mos Eisley bartender) in Ep. IV spoke in strong English accents, which were dubbed over for the American audience.

The guy would make a perfect Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Re: Cumberbatch in Star Wars 7

I watched some behind the scenes stuff with Prowse talking as Vader, and nearly fell out of my chair laughing. His voice would not have worked for Vader. James Earl Jones just sounds menacing whenever he speaks, his voice fit that character perfectly. Also, Cumberbatch would probably be using his own voice, like he did as Khan. The man has one of the best voices of any actor working today. He's also so ridiculously awesome and charismatic that he could make reading a menu at Wendy's sound badass.

Ooh, missed opportunity for Wendy's to have a promotional tie-in with STIP. Have a commercial with Cumberbatch and Chris Pine eating at Wendy's, perhaps even in costume. Cumberbatch says "Now that's Better." Pine asks "than what?" Cumberbatch answers "Everything."

That's actually a really cool idea. Why didn't anyone else think of that?

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.
