Karl Urban Joining Star Trek XI?

Also: More on the Mike Vogel-as-Kirk rumor.

Add Karl Urban to the list of names being bandied about as potential additions to the cast of Star Trek XI.

IGN Movies reported on Friday that a number of sites, including IESB.net and TrekMovie.com, have been spreading the word of Urban’s possible involvement in the J.J. Abrams-directed reboot. Though IESB initially claimed Urban was up for the role of a Romulan bad guy, TrekMovie has refuted that report, saying:

It is not for the film’s villain (nor is it for Kirk). The source would not go further when pressed, but based on the actor’s age (35) either Scotty or Bones may be a good guess.

The article goes on to reference more of the TrekMovie report, saying that the studio is “looking for well known brand name actor (especially one who will help the film play in foreign markets). This fits with the report that there is interest in Russell Crowe for the part.”

Finally, TrekMovie weighs in on last week’s rumor about Mike Vogel having been chosen as Star Trek XI‘s Kirk, saying that, according to their sources, Vogel is “‘just one of the people being looked at’ for the role and that they are still mulling options. Vogel’s publicist also tells TrekMovie.com the original article as written was ‘not true.'”
