Peter Weller, known best to science fiction fans as the star of the movie Robocop and the television series Odyssey 5, has been cast in JJ Abrams’ new Star Trek film in an unspecified role, according to an article in Variety. Benicio Del Toro was previously reported to have been offered the role of the film’s chief villain, and aside from denying that Del Toro would be playing Khan (the role made famous by Ricardo Montalban in ST: TOS and ST II: The Wrath of Khan), Abrams has released very little information about the characters in the new film. Alicia Eve (Entourage, Men In Black III) has also been cast in a similarly undisclosed role. The new Star Trek film is planned for release on May 13, 2013, by which time we hope to know its title and cast.
