Actor says that the villain played by Sherlock actor Benedict Cumberbatch is playing is not Khan . . .
Actor Simon Pegg has declared in a recent interview that, despite Internet rumors to the contrary, that Khan Noonien Singh is not the character played by Benedict Cumberbatch in JJ.J. Abrams’ highly-anticipated Star Trek 2 sequel.
“It’s not Khan. That’s a myth. Everyone’s saying it is, but it’s not,” the actor who will return as Scotty said.
Pegg however couldn’t reveal the identity of the real villain: “(He’s) not just another disgruntled alien. It’s a really interesting… sort of… thing. Obviously I can’t talk about it.”
Misinformation? We’ll just have to wait until May 17th next year to find out.
