Earlier this week, we reported that Benicio Del Toro had left the upcoming Star Trek sequel over a salary dispute.
Now it appears that J.J. Abrams has found the actor to replace Del Toro in the role of Khan.
Blastr reports that Venezuelan actor Edgar Ramirez is Abrams’ pick to replace Del Toro. Ramirez, who’s not widely known to American audiences, blew critics away as the international terrorist Carlos the Jackal in the miniseries Carlos. He’s also been in Che, Domino and The Bourne Ultimatum, and will show up as Ares, the god of war, in next year’s Wrath of the Titans.
