benicio del toro turns down star trek sequel role

How disappointing!

Last month, we were VERY excited to hear that J.J. Abrams wanted Benicio Del Toro to play a bad guy in the upcoming Star Trek sequel!

Now, we're sad to report that Benicio has turned down the Trek role, after "parties couldn't come to terms over monetary issues."

Seriously, Benicio? We haven't seen U on the big screen since The Wolfman! Come back to us!!!!!

What do U think? Any chance Benicio will change his mind? If not…who do U think should replace him???

    Wow! He looks real bad! REAL bad. I remember when I saw
    "Traffic" and I thought he was so cool but the drinking and the drugging and the lack of hygiene make him look disgusting.He should be grateful to be the bad guy or a Wolfman or whatever. He won't get any leading roles unless he plays a leading bad guy type.

    Ha! They have many other options, while Benicio will have to look up to other projects, who knows if he can get anything this big and with that amount of exposure.

    Yeah! I would never watch it. He is so my dirty dirty secret crush.

    He looks well over indulged. Parties indeed…

    Good, maybe he will take care of his new baby, and not be a dead beat dad……poor kid.

    Benicio was an inspired casting choice, and he must be going through a hard time right now to not have the wherewithal to realize this is a golden opportunity. When i first heard of him being considered for the role, i immediately became reinvigorated about the movie - simply because not only is he a POWERFUL actor, but aesthetically he's tailor-made for the role. BENICIO DO IT, JJ ABRAMS…CONVINCE HIM!

    I urge Benicio to make it happen anyway. I could so see him in a powerful, dark role in this series. He's an onscreen fave. These Star Trek movies require many actors to be effective, so as ensembles, the pay is not going to be able to likely match that of a smaller production.

    Re: lemonbird – Has he ever looked good?

    Rickey Martin should take the role

    I can't believe he would turn down a big part in what is sure to be a huge block buster. The Wolfman was simply awful and the only thing he produced was a baby with whatzerface.
    Not a good career move. Not at all. Does he think he is Daniel Day Lewis?

    Apparently it was to do with money - maybe Kimho is asking for more child support lol. He really can't afford to turn down roles especially ones like these. Benicio ruined his looks through hard partying,drinking and sleeping with trashy women.

    This is good news, people. He'll just mumble all of his dialogue. You might as well cast Nick Nolte. No one can understand a thing he says either.

    Wow he use to be one sexxy man, what happened?
