Benicio Del Toro wanted for 'Star Trek' villain
J.J. Abrams wants actor for Paramount sequel

By: JUSTIN KROLL

EXCLUSIVE: Though most of the roles are already cast in the upcoming sequel to Paramount and Skydance's "Star Trek," the role of mysterious villain was still open -- and now it looks like J.J. Abrams has made his choice.

Though no offer has been delivered, sources close to the project say Benicio Del Toro is expected to be offered the part soon, maybe by weekend's end.

Insiders say Del Toro has met with Abrams but doesn't know what the role is, in order to keep in a secret. Par and Skydance had no comment on the casting.

Abrams is back to direct with Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof penning the script.

Abrams, Kurtzman, Orci, Lindelof, Bryan Burk, and David Ellison will produce through Bad Robot and Skydance Productions.

Production is expected to start in early 2012.

Del Toro most recently finished production on Universal's "Savages."

He'll be okay, if he accepts, but for sheer "villainy" with an Hispanic flavor, if that's a requirement, then you can't beat Javier Bardem. Although I suspect his price would be higher than Del Toro. scratch
