The upcoming sequel to J.J. Abrams' Star Trek has added a villain into the mix.
Joining the cast as a still-untitled rogue, is Benedict Cumberbatch, who is known for the titular role on the BBC's Sherlock, a head-turning role in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and will actually provide the voice and physical motion-capture acting for the role of fire-breathing Dragon, Smaug in the two parts of The Hobbit.
Now, the London-born actor could be looking at what may be a breakthrough role when he takes on the rejuvenated crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise.
Oh, but wait, there is another that will be joining the cast of the intergalactic space epic. How does a former Doctor Who companion sound?
