All this tells me is the intersection of Star Trek fandom and Sherlock fandom will result in the exploding of the cosmos.
And that Lindelof should just let Fanboy Orci do all the talking.
|Q:||Besides having the greatest name ever, what caused you to cast Benedict Cumberbatch?|
|ABRAMS:||We just were looking for someone with the most awesome name in history. That was the casting call. We asked for someone with the most awesome name in history, ever, and Benedict Cumberbatch showed up, so we were like, “You’re cast!”|
|Q:||What was it that made him your villain?|
|ABRAMS:||Who said he’s our villain?|
|Q:||What made you want to cast him?|
|ABRAMS:||He’s a genius. Honestly, he’s just an incredible actor. If you’ve seen his work in Sherlock, he’s just got incredible skills. He’s an amazing stage actor. He did amazing work (on stage) in Frankenstein. He’s brilliant. You try to cast people who are great. We got lucky.|
|Q:||Did you look at a lot of people for that role?|
|Q:||Was he an immediate choice?|
|ABRAMS:||I just loved his work and thought that he was perfect for what we needed. We were just very lucky.|
|Q:||Was the decision to not use anybody from the original cast this time an easy or difficult decision to make?|
|ABRAMS:||It was just what the story of the movie required. With everything, you respond to what you’re trying to do and what story you’re trying to tell.|
