Star Trek 2 has gained another new addition to its cast with British actor-writer-director Noel Clarke (Doctor Who) coming on board.  According to Variety, “While the details of Clarke’s role are being kept under wraps, he will play a family man with a wife and young daughter.”  Clarke joins other newcomers Alice Eve and Peter Weller.  We heard back in December that casting of the film’s villain (who will likely be Khan) was imminent, but there’s still no word on who has the role. Edgar Ramirez was previously reported as the frontrunner after Benicio Del Toro passed on the part.

In addition to his recurring role on Doctor Who, Clarke wrote and co-starred in Kidulthood and the sequel Adulthood, which he also directed.  He also wrote, starred, and co-directed the crime drama 4.3.2.1 co-starring Emma Roberts and Ophelia Lovibond.  I haven’t seen any of Clarke’s previous work but I’ll be sure to check some of it out before the U.S.S. Enterprise starts exploring strange new galaxies again.  Star Trek 2 opens in 3D on May 17, 2013.
