Who are They Eyeing for Khan in Star Trek 2 ?


Just last night, we posted an interview with Star Trek director J.J. Abrams in which he said he won’t know if he’ll direct the sequel until the script is done, which may be a while.

But what if he does return? And Khan is the villain? ComingSoon.net is hearing a pretty juicy rumor that they already have a favorite who they’d like to play Khan if that happens.

Who do they think could portray the character made famous by Ricardo Montalban in the 1967 “Star Trek” episode “Space Seed” and 1982 feature Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan?

Nestor Carbonell, who plays Richard Alpert on the J.J. Abrams-executive produced ABC series “Lost.”

Now, before you go shouting Nestor is KHAAAN! There are way too many variables right now, including the fact that the Khan character may not even be in the sequel. We just know that if they started filming today, he would be their man.
