Well this is a far cry from Benicio del Toro!
Although it was rumored that Edgar Ramirez would be taking the actor's place after he turned down the role of the main villain in the upcoming Star Trek 2, it's been announced that instead, it will be Benedict Cumberbatch, best known for his starring part in the BBC Sherlock series!

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???

Okay, so U won't ACTUALLY see RoboCop in the next Star Trek movie…but U WILL see the actor who plays him!
We've just learned that Peter Weller, who played Alex Murphy/RoboCop in the classic action flick, will be joining JJ Abrams' Star Trek sequel in an as-of-yet-unidentified role.
Sorry for getting UR hopes up, Detroit, but it should still be exciting to see the RoboActor doing his thing with Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and hopefully Benicio Del Toro as well!
…Can't wait for May 17, 2013!!!!!

According to reputable reports, director J.J. Abrams has been "courting" Benicio Del Toro like there's no tomorrow.
JJ wants Benicio in his Star Trek sequel BAD, and we hear a formal offer will be extended to Benny Boy this weekend!!
But who does he want him to play? Well that's yet to leave JJ's mouth, but some are thinking it's bad guy Khan.
Ooooh, spicy!! Thoughts, trekkies??
