Okay, fine, that headline is totally lame. But forgive me, because I’m all in a tizzy, because the best nerdy news all year (well, all year so far) has just been released: Benedict Cumberbatch will be in the next Star Trek movie!!
It hasn’t been announced yet who he will play, but there are plenty of options – a sullenly intellectual member of the crew? An evil elfin villain? A posh psychopathic member of an alien race? The mind boggles. But one thing’s for sure, I shall go where… many… women… have gone before? Okay, you know what, I suck at the Star Trek references (mostly because I have to google them all – I’ve only ever seen the movie (I’m only a blossoming nerd)). But you get the idea. I will go. I will buy a ticket. I will make excited, high-pitched noises. This is awesome.
