Director J.J. Abrams continues to amass a nice list of supporting actors for his next film, the sequel Star Trek 2. Today, it has been announced that former 24 actress Nazneen Contractor has joined the still growing cast.

Nazneen Contractor will play on-screen wife to recently announced Doctor Who star Noel Clarke. Neither character's identity has been revealed, but they are set to play a couple with a young daughter.

Other recent additions to the cast include genre fan favorites Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) and Peter Weller (Robocop), which hints that J.J. Abrams has been watching a lot of 80s cult movies and the BBC. It is not yet clear how that will influence the upcoming movie.
