This is interesting news:

Here comes two big reasons for the world to survive 2012: earlier today, former Doctor Who star Noel Clarke (a.k.a. Mickey Smith) had been cast in J.J. Abrams‘s follow-up to his mega-successful reboot of Star Trek. "Variety" revealed only sketchy details about who Clarke would play, only reporting that his character would be “family man with a wife and young daughter.”

Now comes the added bombshell from Deadline that Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch (!) would also be joining Star Trek 2 in an unknown role.

So now all the Sherlock and DW fans will be going to see the film along with the Trek fans and Abrams fans!
