Benicio Del Toro out of “Star Trek 2,” but Khan might still be the villain

It looks like the rumors mill might have gotten it backwards yesterday when news hit the web that Benicio Del Toro would not be playing Khan in “Star Trek 2.” Originally we assumed that when director J.J. Abrams said the Khan rumor was “not true,” he meant it was because the beloved “Trek” character would not be the villain in the movie. As it turns out, things might be the other way around. A new report says that the reason why the rumor is not true is because Del Toro is not going to be in the movie, and that Khan is still the upcoming flick’s bad guy.

Vulture learned that talks with Del Toro broke down last week over monetary issues. Now Abrams will have to quickly fill that void in his film, as he already cast Alice Eve and Peter Weller in the other two new roles in the story. Since production is set to start in January, he doesn’t have much time to spare.

But it sounds like those Khan rumors might be much more than that. Vulture also heard from a “highly placed source” that Khan is definitely “Trek 2’s” bad guy. It seems like Abrams was sending out a red herring when he said the Del Toro/Khan rumor wasn’t true because he knew Del Toro was no longer a part of the film. In the end, only time will tell whether these rumors end up being true or not.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
