Star Trek Casting Comparison
J.J. Abrams has assembled his cast for the upcoming Star Trek XI. Read on to find out how the new crew measures up to their predecessors.
Captain James T. Kirk
Actors: Chris Pine is in negotiations to take over from William Shatner. Pine’s schedule, however, is reportedly an issue so it’s possible that another actor (say, Poseidon’s Mike Vogel) may sit in the captain’s chair instead. Pine is a relative unknown to most audiences, with his most high profile films roles to date being Lindsay Lohan’s love interest in Just My Luck and as one of the kill-crazy Tremor brothers in Smokin’ Aces. At 27, Pine is eight years younger than Shatner was when he first portrayed James Tiberius Kirk, but since this film will supposedly be a “first adventure” story then that could work. Physically, Pine doesn’t bear too much of a resemblance to The Shat (especially the eyes), but we do think it’s ironic that one actor with thinning hair has been tapped to play another who was a trailblazer in the field of toupees and hair weaves.
