Benedict Cumberbatch divulges Star Trek villain details

Dec 7 2012, 8:43am CST | by

Benedict Cumberbatch has revealed his 'Star Trek Into Darkness' character is ''ruthless''.

The 36-year-old actor and director J.J. Abrams have kept the identity of the mysterious villain under wraps until now, but the 'War Horse' star let slip his evil alter ego would be very difficult to judge because of his ambiguous nature.

Benedict told Trek Movie: ''He is very ruthless. He is not a clearly good or evil character. He is a villain but the actions he takes has intent and reason.

''He is a complicated character not to be judged by white-or-black, or good-or-evil. But this is the appeal of J.J.'s works and I felt challenged as an actor.''

The British star praised 'LOST' creator J.J.'s 2009 reboot of the cult sci-fi series, but is wary of the franchise's popularity and said he was overcome with ''terror'' when he realised how many people would be watching the sequel.

Benedict explained: ''I was a fan of the [first film], so I was pleased when I got the offer. But I know the second one will become far-bigger scale, so I felt terror instantly.''

His co-star Chris Pine - who plays hero Captain James T. Kirk - was impressed with Benedict's ''formidable'' performance on set and thinks fans will love the intensity he brings to the film.

Chris recently said: ''Obviously I can't say much, but there's one scene in it. It's a really hard scene, not for me, but for Benedict. And watching him handle that and to make something that I think, on paper, could have really been a death trap for an actor. He's formidable as an actor and as a character in the story.''

'Star Trek Into Darkness' is released on May 17 next year.

Who hasn’t done the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge at this point?  We’ve see Chris Pratt do it, James Wan just posted his video, R2D2 got hit with a bucket full of ice water, and even my own mother tried to give it a go!  But this next one is a particularly cool one, and not just because it continues to help spread awareness about a condition we know so little about. Not only did Henry Cavill and Amy Adams choose to accept the challenge, but they opted to do so in full costume on the set of Batman ...

The 2014 Emmy Award Winners

Aug 25 2014 11:53pm CDT | Source: Dark Horizons

Risks may have been taken, but the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards tonight played it very safe - for the most part picking familiar winners from previous years in many categories rather than rewarding some of the more critically acclaimed fare out there. The final season of "Breaking Bad" dominated the drama category, nabbing almost all the awards in it including Best Drama series, three acting nods, and ...
