Pegg Teases Star Trek Trailer Speculation + Saldana Talks Cumberbatch’s Sexy Voice [+ New Zoe PHOTOS]

The big news this week is the Star Trek Into Darkness announcement trailer. And now two of the films stars are talking (a little) about it. Zoe Saldana weighs in on the sexiness of costar and villain Benedict Cumberbatch, whereas Simon Pegg seems to be enjoying sitting back and watching all the wild speculation. More details below plus photos of Zoe from an awards event last night. 


Pegg Teases He Knows ALL + Saldana talks Cumberbatch Voice

. Simon Pegg (Scotty) took to twitter to tease what he knows (and we don’t)…

And Star Trek’s Zoe Saldana was a presenter at the Children’s Defense Fund’s 22nd annual Beat The Odds Awards last night. Contact Music talked to Zoe at the event, where she talked about her Star Trek Into Darkness co-star Benedict Cumberbatch, and his voice-over in the recently released announcement trailer:

Speaking about the clip – which shows Benedict making a threatening speech as his villainous character, thought to be Khan – Zoe said: ”I emailed the whole gang (after watching it). I was like, ‘Benedict, your voice sounds better than Barry White’s.’ I’m sure I made him blush.”

And here are some photos of Zoe from the event.

Not sure BC would know who Barry White is…

At some point, SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE is going to slip up and let out a piece of real information on this :)

@Phil Why?

December 7, 2012 2:05 pm

@2. Phil. I am sure BC would know who Barry White is. Barry is awesome, and well regarded in the UK. BC also seems very cultured. For any fans of Cumberbatch (particularly those who find him attractive) the voice is in beautiful action here:

She is sexy as hell.

@2. Phil
Not sure you would know who Mozart was.

Maybe it has already happened and then they deny it of course.

Or think about the hundreds of ideas people on this side came up with.
Someone had to be right!
But of course boborci would never confirm that directly.

She is such a jewel. Love to see her smiling. She looks great in those Ray Ban ads popping up as well.

Damn Zoë is pretty. Just in case this gets to him, Simon is too!

Love love love Zoe!

@ 8 Khan would know who Barry White is being they are both from the same century. He’s quite intelligent,. ;-)

Yes, but can Benedict Cumberbatch sing, “I Can’t Get Enough Of Your Love”? ;-)

December 7, 2012 3:06 pm


Well, there go my ovaries.

With no disrespect intended, I would give Zoe the best 7 seconds of my life! :)

Re: 16

I think BC should pull a Shatner and speak the entire song.

Guess what, SIMON!

I have ALL the answers too.

‘Just keeping them to myself!

(Grins back at ya….)

– Zoe said: ”I emailed the whole gang (after watching it). I was like, ‘Benedict, your voice sounds better than Barry White’s.’ I’m sure I made him blush.”

(I am sure you did, Miss Saldaña.)

…I personally Love the way he blushes right up over his… ears….

….What am I saying?! I don’t even know the guy!
And, why am I talking about his…. ears…of ALL things?

Why Simon? WHY?
(I’m supposed to have ALL the answers, dammit!)

….Wipe that grin off your face, SIMON!!!!!!!!!!

Gary Mitchell, and I love it!

Too many posts to read, for me, so maybe this prediction’s really late to the party, but I think the funeral is for Gary, left for dead…, and back with unstoppable power!

Aurore, the fic is going to be crazy. ;)

December 7, 2012 5:59 pm

I almost thought it was Patrick Stewart narrating at first. Cumberbatch is no Sir PatStew yet, but he’ll probably get there with age.

December 7, 2012 6:26 pm

“…the fic is going to be crazy. ;)”

Little title suggestions:

“The Alien Who Loved Me”

“Your Awesomeness Is My Weakness”

” Whispers Into The Darkness”

Zoe Saldanha – subconsciously- has been cumberbatched, too! <3

December 8, 2012 6:59 am

Zoe is fine but she assasinated the character of Uhura for me and made here a bit bitchy for my liking

December 8, 2012 8:14 am

Maybe this is a fake trailer to throw s off?!

Benedict Cumberbatch saying Oh My God Remix:

Gary Mitchell is the villain. Alice Eve is Elizabeth Dehner. It is quite odvious I think. Even if Gary Mitchell did seem to die in the comic book series, he might of not. Kirk shot him with a phaser cannon and they think he’s dead. They torpedoed him out into space in a capsule and that’s how he escapes and somehow comes back. That’s why Gary wants revenge on Kirk and the Federation. Besides, in the original episode Where No Man Has Gone Before, Kirk tried killing Gary with a phaser cannon even then. And it didn’t kill him.
