Famous actor/mumbler Benicio Del Toro has been offered a role in Star Trek 2, the sequel to J.J. Abrams' surprise hit Star Trek reboot. What the role actually is is somewhat mysterious, other than the fact that it's for a bad guy. The only Star Trek I've ever seen is Star Trek IV, so I'm guessing this means he's going to be a Republican. Those Republicans are scary guys - I like their weird foreheads.

Anyway, it's not set in stone yet, but Del Toro has reportedly "met with Abrams but, in an effort to keep the role a secret, still doesn't know exactly what it is." Man, so this Abrams guy is like that with people he knows in real life too. Must be annoying. (Variety)
