Make no 'Bones' about it: it's Karl Urban

Dammit, Jim! It's a done deal!
IESB broke news of the offer weeks ago, and now STEPHANIE SANCHEZ has gotten confirmation from Ain't It Cool News: Karl Urban (Pathfinder)has been cast as the new Dr. Leonard McCoy in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek.

Technically, IESB first announced that Urban had been offered A role, which they were told was a villain. Other rumors have swirled that he was to play Capt. Christopher Pike (Kirk's predecessor on the Enterprise). But they did post last week that "Bones" McCoy was to be Urban's character.

As of yesterday, AICN said that the offer was almost a "done deal," and that Urban will indeed be taking up the mantle of the late DeForest Kelley.

However, there has, as yet, been no "official" trade announcement.
