'Star Trek Into Darkness': Benedict Cumberbatch brings sexy back to Starfleet uniform in new movie still

benedict-cumberbatch-starfleet-uniform-star-trek-into-darkness.jpgJust when we thought Benedict Cumberbatch couldn't possibly be any sexier, Paramount has released a new still from "Star Trek Into Darkness" that proves otherwise.

Yes, that's Hollywood's most talked-about villain in a Starfleet uniform (flapping hands frantically in futile attempt to cool down).

Cumberbatch is identified by the studio in the photo caption as "John Harrison" -- a name that does not appear in "Star Trek" lore. A red herring, perhaps? Could he still be Khan, as has been speculated since J.J. Abrams first announced the sequel?

The mysterious Mr. Harrison is apparently being held prisoner in the Enterprise's brig, having a staring contest with Captain Kirk ( Chris Pine) and Spock ( Zachary Quinto). But why?

Then again, does it really matter as long as we get more photos like this one?
