More Khan Talk For Star Trek XII

More Khan Talk For Star Trek XII

In the latest round of non-news for the upcoming Star Trek sequel, Nestor Carbonell (who we loving refer to as Batmanuel) says that he would "be thrilled" to play Khan in the next movie.

"Well, it would be tremendous, it would be amazing," Says Carbonell. "I know that ['Lost'] has already opened many doors for me, and that's the great thing about this business, that you never know which job you do will help you out with other jobs. This show has given me and my family so much, so if that were to happen, it would be tremendous."

Nestor has been in previous J.J. Projects, like Lost and apparently has lots of support from fans concerning Khan.  He even talks about how his pecs could live up to Ricardo Montalban's.  Ha, I say!  Those would be some big space vests to fill.

"Listen, all modesty aside, I'm pretty shredded right now," Laughs Carbonell. "Richard may not get to flex his muscles, but he's not averse to taking off his shirt. Should it happen, the fans will know." Speaking of his role on Lost.

We may be in the minority here, but we're not 100% sold on the Khan idea.  Let's wait and see what Roberto Orci and  Alex Kurtzman have to offer.  Who knows, maybe the new film will be based around the TOS episode "Miri".  If that's the case, we'd be cool with Carbonell playing a grup.
