Let the speculation... continue!
A week or so ago, we began hearing rumors that J.J. Abrams was interested in casting Benicio Del Toro as the villain in STAR TREK 2. Well, it's a rumor no more! MTV caught up with Abrams at the DVD release bash for SUPER 8, and, in his typically forthcoming fashion, he confirmed that they are... not negotiating, but discussing.
See for yourself!
Anyone but Uhura, eh? Yep. Sounds like the Gorn to me!
