But who will he be playing? The rumour mill had been churning since the announcement of Trek 2. Could The Cumberbeast be playing the infamous Khan? That would certainly be a fine string to Benedicts bow. After all, he has just wowed audiences with his performances in Tinker, Tailer, Soldier, Spy (hopefully with an Oscar nod to boot) and is soon to be jetting off Down Under to voice Smaug opposite Martin Freeman in The Hobbit.
Whomever he plays, this news has made Nighthawk a VERY happy girl today here at Fish Custard towers!
