The worst kept secret in Hollywood – so says Latino Review, who were the first to report the rumour – is that Benendict Cumberbatch is reuniting with his “Star Trek Into Darkness” director JJ Abrams for the upcoming “Star Wars Episode VII”. Different galaxies, same emperor… if you will.
Cumberbatch’s people are denying claims that the British actor is playing the new baddie in the movie, but word is, the deal is as good as done.
Watch Cumberbatch’s response when asked by TV’s Graham Norton whether he’s in the film – it’s interesting.
Harrison Ford, as you’ll see from the clip, is still playing the ‘I don’t know if I’m gonna do it’ card. We think he will though.
