Benicio Del Toro Turns Down Star Trek Villain Role

According to a report from Vulture, Benicio Del Toro has turned down the offered villain role in JJ Abrams’ new Star Trek film after the parties involved were unable to arrive at a monetary agreement.  Speculation continues as to which classic Star Trek villain will be portrayed in the film; Director Abrams previously denied that it would be Khan (from the original series and ST II: The Wrath of Khan), but there are still those who insist Abrams is misleading us and we will, in fact, be seeing Khan onscreen in 2013. It remains to be seen how long Abrams can keep his cast, title, and plot a secret.
