Simon Pegg Refutes Sequel Rumors


During an interview with The Telegraph, Star Trek‘s Simon Pegg refuted rumors that Benedict Cumberbatch will play Khan, in the upcoming film sequel.

Pegg referred to Cumberbatch’s character as “not just another disgruntled alien. It’s a really interesting… sort of… thing,” saying “Obviously I can’t talk about it.”

When asked about the character, Pegg said “It’s not Khan,” Adding “That’s a myth. Everyone’s saying it is, but it’s not.”

When prodded and asked if that was possibly misinformation coming from Abrams camp, Pegg said “No, I think people just want to have a scoop. It annoys me – it’s beyond the point to just ferret around for spoilers all the time to try to be the first to break them,”

“It just spoils the film,” he complains. “It masquerades as interest in the movie but really it’s just nosiness and impatience. You just want to say, ‘Oh f— off! Wait for the film!’” he said.

The Star Trek sequel, starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, John Cho, Benedict Cumberbatch, Peter Weller, Bruce Greenwood and Alice Eve, will hit theaters on May 17, 2013.

    He wants to tell people to just **** off? And yet he can’t seem to wait to blab that its not Khan. Everybody else in the know have been pretty happy to leave people guessing.
    Simon, i’m afraid, is the loose lips on this particular ship!
