Star Trek film names Kirk actor

Little-known actor Chris Pine has been chosen to play the young Captain Kirk in the new Star Trek movie.

Chris Pine was in the AWESOME film Smokin’ Aces. He was pretty good in it. I’ve not seen anything else he’s been in though.


  • Captain Kirk – Chris Pine
  • Older Mr Spock – Leonard Nimoy
  • Young Mr Spock – Zachary Quinto
  • Scotty – Simon Pegg
  • Nero – Eric Bana
  • Uhura – Zoe Saldana
  • Chekov – Anton Yelchin
  • Sulu – John Cho
  • Leonard ‘Bones’ McCoy – Karl Urban

I’m…not sure how I feel about Simon Pegg playing Scotty. It could be great. Or it could be bad. I associate him with too many other things.

The same with Karl Urban too. I’m not sure how that’s going to work.

Also. Who’s this Nero guy?
