Alice Eve in Talks for "Big Role" in The Sequel

Hollywood Reporter say:

Alice Eve is in negotiations for a significant role in Paramount's second installment of the J.J. Abrams-shepherded Star Trek reboot. [...] Little is known about the Eve's character beyond that the role is significant.

Honestly, as soon as I saw her picture I thought, "Yep, she's Rand." I will bet my pinky toes on it. (You don't really need your pinky toes, right?) I haven't actually seen her in anything but she seems awesome based purely on my Google Image search of her, so she could be a cool addition to the cast as long as she doesn't get in the way of Kirk and Spock knocking boots!

ETA: I derped. Apparently Eve's charactger is going to be someone brand new. Plus there's this interesting tidbit:

Del Toro's role is likely a familiar Trek character and that he'll be accompanied by another, older supporting villain that has yet to be cast.

Pretty much rules out him being Khan, I think, which makes me happy. Can't really think of who ELSE he might be, though... Maybe some Klingon dudes, is my best guess.
