If Benicio Del Toro won’t do it, I know who will! Actually, I know who the frontrunner to play the villain in the upcoming Star Trek 2 is!
Looks that now Edgar Ramirez, Carlos star is in some serious talks to play the iconic Khan, although J.J. Abrams still denies the rumors.
Say what you want but Ramirez definitely looks like an interesting choice for the role!
According to Variety, Jordi Molla is also being considered for the part, but I guess that Ramirez is still number one choice.
Whoever wins, one thing is for sure – he will join the cast which already includes Peter Weller and Alice Eve.
Damon Lindelof, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman are behind the sequel story, and as we previously reported Michael Giacchino will be returning as composer.
Production on Star Trek sequel is set to start on January 15th next year, and it already has May 17th, 2013 release date.
