Aside from Hamill, Fisher, and Ford, the only actors who are guaranteed to be in the new SW films are Greg Grunberg and Amanda Foreman.

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.

It's not creative incest. As a rule, people like to work with those they've worked well with before, whether those people are directors or plumbers.

It's really not.

Most of them are unemployed for a reason.

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.

It's like Cumberbatch and Karl Urban are competing to see who can most completely invade Nerd Consciousness.

"I'm Smaug, Sauron and Khan all at the same time!"
"Oh yeah, well I'm Eomer, Bones and Dredd!"

We must keep the franchises pure! We must ensure the purity fo the Trek above all else! We must stand against the dilution of true Trek...

...sorry, had a "moment".

Reality: You're right. I don't care what someone has or hasn't worked on. So long as they're the right man or woman for the job, let them have it.

Abrams, like many directors, has a thing with working with the same actors. Just from the Trek cast, Simon Pegg is in Bad Robot's Mission Impossible movies and Karl Urban is in that new Almost Human show. Add onto that all the actors who have been in multiple Abrams projects.

It's nothing unusual. Christopher Nolan casts Michael Caine in everything, has worked with Tom Hardy and Christian Bale multiple times. Joss Whedon is constantly bringing his cadre of actors on his many projects. And so on.

Basically, there's no reason we can't expect a few Abrams Trek stars to show up in Star Wars Episode 7. I'm sure Simon Pegg would like to be able to say he's been in all three of the world's biggest sci-fi franchises. It'll sure be surreal though, since very few actors have been involved in both Trek and Wars. Leaving out voice actors in Clone Wars, I doubt the number of actors to have roles in the live action movies/episodes goes above ten.

Abrams needs to cast Tom Hardy too, so we can have Shinzon vs. Khan in the Star Wars universe!

Khan could pummel Shinzon using only his eyelashes.

Pegg already supplied the voice for Dengar in the animated The Clone Wars.

Re: Cumberbatch in Star Wars 7

I'd like Abrams to bring in Tom Hiddleston as well. We could have Khan and Loki in the same franchise, it would be glorious.
