Benicio Del Toro May Be Star Trek’s Next Villain

Let's hope this one goes better than Benicio Del Toro's last big-budget studio movie: Variety is reporting that the Oscar-winning actor has been courted by J.J. Abrams to play the baddie in his highly anticipated Star Trek sequel, and a formal offer to Del Toro is expected to go out this weekend. Who would he be playing? Nobody seems to know, and according to Variety, Del Toro hasn't been told either. Could the strict secrecy mean that he'll be filling Ricardo Montalban's revealing blouse as Khan? [Variety]
