Nestor Carbonell, eyeliner-guy and... Khan?

I love Richard Alpert. Who doesn't? Nestor Carbonell recently did a great interview with Movieline. Lots of goodies for us Losties. Among other things, there's this about shirtlessness:
Now that you’ve done The Tick, Lost, and The Dark Knight, you’ve cultivated a geek army that’s touting you for Khan, should they include that villain in the next Star Trek sequel. Have you seen that?
Well, it would be tremendous, it would be amazing. I know that the show has already opened many doors for me, and that’s the great thing about this business, that you never know which job you do will help you out with other jobs. This show has given me and my family so much, so if that were to happen, it would be tremendous.
I think the question, Nestor, is whether you have the pecs to play Khan.
[Laughs] Listen, all modesty aside, I’m pretty shredded right now. Richard may not get to flex his muscles, but he’s not averse to taking off his shirt. Should it happen, the fans will know.
Wait, spoiler alert! We’re getting a shirtless Richard scene soon?
I can neither confirm nor deny. [Laughs]
Oh yes. Having the geekdoms collide like that, with Alpert playing Khan, would be awesome. I hope it does happen.
