The iPhone is sometimes compared to a Star Trek communicator, so it’s pretty cool that an actor from Sherlock, Benedict Cumberbatch, used it to get a part on the upcoming J.J. Abrams Trek sequel. When Cumberbatch couldn’t make it to the audition, he used his iPhone to record a reading and sent it along, according to the New York Times (subscription required).

Macworld Australia speculates he’ll play Khan, but so far all we know is Abrams was blown away by the iPhone-recorded audition, calling it “…one of the most compelling audition readings I’d ever seen.”
