No Kahn and no wrestlers. Actors! The movie needs actors and good writers. If they get someone like The Rock then we have the worst of TOS season 3 when they started bringing in celebrities (that lawyer guy... remember him) and dressing like hippies. It would turn Star Trek into a total joke. Horrible, horrible idea.

Yes. I would love to see something akin to Devil in the Dark. Something more than just one guy fighting another guy. I can see that in any cop show. Star Trek is better than that.

I want to see a "thing" like the whale probe. Just some weird thing that is so far beyond us it's ridiculous.

The Rock is a pretty classy guy. He's also a certified star with more than a dozen non-wrestling movies to his credit, including a major movie in current release. Get Smart (2008), in which he had a significant role, made over $130,000,000.

His Tomato-meter has been on the rise, as well. (See http://www.rottentomatoes.com/celebr...8210-the_rock/ ). His celebrity standing is similar to Eric Bana's before 2009, according to Rotten Tomatoes. (See: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/celebrity/eric_bana/ )

Moreover, he's still very affordable, it would seem.

True, he hasn't won awards the way Eric Bana ("Nero") has, but I think he's actually much better known across the board in the United States.

If the next movie casts him as Khan, they could probably easily afford a recognizable second guest star as Joachim, Khan's second in command. I'm tentatively thinking Dirk Benedict ("Apollo" from the original BSG), which could bring in the new-BSG/Ron Moore crowd.

Joachim, originally portrayed by Judson Scott:

Maybe there's a spot for Rick Flair too! And... And... some giant fighting robots. Yeah, that'll sell tons of tickets.

BTW, Dirk played Starbuck, not Apollo.

So far, in his career I have to say I don't think he's demonstrated quite the acting chops needed to play Khan, especially if Orci and Kurtzman keep some of the cheesier dialogue lines in there!

Looks like Javier Bardem ("No Country For Old Men") is the frontrunner....
