Pine May be Captain Kirk, Cop, 'It'

October 10, 2007


Move over, Brad Pitt! Outta the way, McConaughey! Matt Damon who? Oh, that is his last name? According to Hollywood Reporter, we may have a new "It Boy" in town, and his name is Chris Pine.

And what is their basis for this bold claim? That he has more than one (two) roles being offered to him, one of which he clearly doesn't have the look for, the other of which he'll clearly be overshadowed:

[Pine] is in discussions to star as Captain Kirk in Paramount's "Star Trek" and in negotiations to star opposite George Clooney in Joe Carnahan's adaptation of the James Ellroy crime novel "White Jazz."

Wait, that's it? There must be some previous catalog of work that we're overlooking that makes him a clear choice as the new "It Boy," right Hollywood Reporter?

Pine's biggest gig to date has been the male lead in the 2006 Lindsay Lohan movie "Just My Luck," which flopped.

Oh, in that case he's definitely the "It Boy," and should be given whatever duties that title holds.

So what do you of this douche as Kirk? Have I given away my stance?

Kirk? Cops? Both? Pine in demand [Hollywood Reporter]
