God, why do these actors have to be such f-ng tools?

Benedict Cumberbatch, who I think is really good in the BBC Sherlock series and who plays the villain in the new Star Trek: Into Darkness movie, tells BBC America the new film is a dig at Bushitlerburton.

In the film there’s a debate among Starfleet personnel over how best to extract an enemy in a distant part of the galaxy — and whether that enemy should be subjected to due process.

The British actor says: “It’s no spoiler I think to say that there’s a huge backbone in this film that’s a comment on recent U.S. interventionist overseas policy from the Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld era.”
