CAST THIS: Khan Noonien Singh
Arguably one of the biggest fanboy faves in the Star Trek Universe… Khan Noonien Singh… stabbed at us with hell’s heart in the old Star Trek series, and later in Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan.
Played so perfectly over the top by Ricardo Montalban, it’s hard to think of anyone EVER taking up the mantle of Khan in the newly minted J.J. Abrams Star Trek universe. However, the moment a sequel was mentioned, the internet went a flutter. Will we would see our lovable, tortured Spaniard?
“Dealing with Khan would certainly be a challenge, but we had an equal challenge in finding our crew of the Enterprise.” – J.J. Abrams
Although nothing has been confirmed, I think it’s a pretty obvious that we are going to see Khan in HD and covered in lens flares.
The question NOW is, “Who do WE think is capable and worthy enough to play him?”
Mainly because, (although I have no way of confirming it,) I have heard from reliable sources that Armchairmogul.net is where J.J. Abrams gets most of his ideas.
One thing is for sure, no matter who you pick. Shatner is not going to be happy.
P.S. I have just as hard of problem doing this, as I would having to recast Terrance Stamps’ Zod. It’s almost like they don’t exist as actors, the only exist in these roles…what say you?
