Who is Benedict Cumberbatch's character in the new Star Trek Movie?



Lot's of rumors abound, but no real answers yet, just like J.J. Abrams wants it to be. The only clue is that he's a rehash of a canon character from TOS. Who is he?

Here are the best choices:



Khan


Gary Mitchell


Garth of Izar


Zephram Cochrane


Ben Finney



Harry Mudd

1. He is the character played by Judson Scott.

Joachim, Khan's main henchman.

In the 1982 film Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Scott played Joachim, chief henchman and closest companion of Khan Noonien Singh. Despite having many lines of dialogue, Scott's name does not appear in the credits. According to TV Guide, Scott's agent was in negotiations with Paramount to get his name high billing in the movie, but the tactic backfired and somehow Scott wound up with no credit at all. He played opposite Ricardo Montalban, which resulted in a friendship that lasted until Montalban's death in January 2009. When Montalban received a lifetime achievement award in 2003, Scott was the presenter.

5. There was, but played by a different actor.

Taller fellow.

8. Yeah, I'm going with Gary Mitchell

Kirk abandoned him on the planet under the belief that he was dead from whatever THING granted him his god like powers. The new blonde just screams Dr. Elizabeth Dehner (Former Sally Kellerman).

If you look closely, Cumberbach is wearing a tunic with a Star Fleet emblem on it.

More things point to Mitchell than to Khan… Then again, he could be Harry Mudd.

7. Other: Don't care, I'd watch him in any movie, any character.

Good actor.
