Maybe. During an interview with SFX magazine, Karl Urban seems to have revealed the name of Cumberbatch's Star Trek 2 villain.

When asked about Cumberbatch, Urban said, "He's awesome, he's a great addition, and I think his Gary Mitchell is going to be exemplary."

Yep. Gary Mitchell. For anyone who doesn't know, Gary Mitchell is a character from Star Trek's second pilot episode, "Where No Man has Gone Before." An old Starfleet Academy friend of Kirk's, Gary Mitchell became an insane psychic with god-like powers after the Enterprise tried to cross the Great Barrier at the edge of the galaxy.

Of course Urban could just be trolling us and mentioning a character that isn't even in the movie. It sounds like something J.J. Abrams would have someone do. What do you think? Would you like to see Gary Mitchell in the new movie? If not, what villain would you prefer?

Holy s**t, please let this happen! Nothing is officially set up yet, but there is interest from both sides. Matt Smith said in a recent interview:

"Let's get Peter Jackson to direct one and go and make it in New Zealand. I would love to, I will campaign endlessly to come over and film there."

And Peter Jackson thinks that's a good idea too.

"I'm a huge Doctor Who fan, and I think Matt's fantastic. Just name a time and place, and I'll be there!"

What kind of episode do you think Jackson would direct?

Mary Tamm passed away today at the age of 62 after an 18-month battle with cancer. Tamm played the Doctor's companion Romana, alongside Tom Baker. A phenomenal actress, she also had roles on Wire in the Blood, Eastenders, and many great live theatre productions, including Private Lives and Abigail's Party.

"On set and offstage, her earthy northern humour and self-deprecating wit brightened every occasion. She was a consummate actress, and immensely popular in the profession," said her husband, Marcus Ringrose. "We will all miss her."

The actor who played Klingon Leader and Diploma, Kang through three different Star Trek shows died last Wednesday. Michael Asnsara, a Syrian born actor who moved to the United States at age 2, started attending college in Los Angeles to become a doctor before finding his passion. He starred as Cochise in 'Broken Arrow' from 1956-1958, and was once married to 'I Dream of Jeannie" star Barbara Eden.

Ansara had an illustrious career as a character actor on the small and silver screens. He leaves behind his wife of 36 years, Beverly. Us Trekkies, will remember him always as Kang, the Klingon Captain who worked with Kirk to avoid violence in 'Day of the Dove'.

Perhaps the biggest news here is that a DeLorean Motor Company still exists. Based in Humble Texas, they supply parts and occasionally build new cars for DeLorean enthusiasts.

Now, they've announced a new electric version of the car. The company says they will begin selling the car built-to-order in 2013 for around $90,000. They say it will be able to hit 125 miles per hour, and have a range of at least 70 miles per charge.

Still, I can't shake the feeling that if my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour, the battery's gonna take a serious s**t.
