Looks like Quinto’s eyebrows grew back alright.

January 11, 2009 7:17 pm

Pine has such a Kirk look and posture.

January 11, 2009 7:18 pm

Did the announcer say “Star TRACK”?

Did the announcer say Star TRACK?!

And there’s Quinto bringing back the skinny tie!

Pine sounded very Kirkish when he said “Spock”.

Ah, there we go.

January 11, 2009 7:35 pm

God they look good together! :)


January 11, 2009 7:35 pm

That closeup of Zach doesn’t give me hope that he will hold up as long as Nimoy did in the role!

January 11, 2009 7:36 pm

Is it wrong to have a man crush on Chris Pine. :-P

Yeah, it’s not a flattering picture. Actually, it kind of looks like he wants to kill me….

I’m sure he’ll be good. It’s Spock.

I’m just glad that Heath Ledger got the Best Supporting Actor Award. It was well-deserved.
2009 Golden Globes / Emmy’s/ Oscars:
And the Best Movie of 2009 goes to….

11, again,
Also, still photos can look god-awful. It’s called Roflrazzi. It’s absolutely full of crappy celeb pictures.

No. No it is not.

Meh, I say “melk” for “milk.” Probably just a different accent from somewhere in the country. Don’t think too much into it.

January 11, 2009 7:52 pm

Aw they had to explain why they where invited. :D

January 11, 2009 7:53 pm


January 11, 2009 7:54 pm

I noticed when Pine said “Mr. Spock”. Sounded very Kirk-like.

January 11, 2009 8:05 pm

Anna Paquin’s adorable.

January 11, 2009 8:17 pm

I think that was the intention. :D

#2 – Thanks for the link. As Ms. Gray wrote in her column: “… here’s hoping that it’s not another case of too much hype and nothing much else on release day.”

I’ll second that.

Brett Campbell
January 11, 2009 8:27 pm

19 – I’ll second that, too. :-)

January 11, 2009 8:29 pm

Well I guess it won’t be long before people think of Pine and Quinto whenever anybody says Kirk and Spock. At least Bill and Leonard still have all us TOS Star Trek fans.

January 11, 2009 8:40 pm


I agree. At 25 seconds when Pine says “Mr. Spock”, the likeness of his voice puts a chill down my spine.

Brett Campbell
January 11, 2009 8:42 pm

23 – Oh, I don’t know about that. Sean Connery is still the first actor who flashes into my mind whenever anyone mentions James Bond.

Messrs. Shatner and Nimoy have associations with these roles for over four decades.

These two young actors — best of luck to them, of course — have yet to hit the screen in these roles. And even when they do, I don’t think it will make most people forget the originals’ associations with these roles anytime soon.

Hopefully this new film will make new fans curious about investigating and exploring the original series and films, to find out what all the fuss was about and why the franchise became what it was in the first place.

Whoa Anna Paquin is hot!

What were we talking about?

The Dog Faced Boy
January 11, 2009 9:13 pm

“…sounded Kirk like”? I agree.

But aren’t we really thinking he sounded Shatner-as-Kirk like?

I think so but he laughed as he was finishing like it was a joke. He knows that’s how people think of Kirk, with the dramatic pauses.

Hey, that’s all I want. Just enough where we think, this guy could turn into the Kirk we know.

His oratory style is a tool that gets people’s attention. Shatner even smiled at the end of some of his speeches, like he knew it was a little over the top. But he was like, “It got you to listen, didn’t it. You’re on board now, aren’t you?”

Pine kissed Anna Paquin, while Quinto just said “Congratulations” from afar.

Seems they’ve settled into their respective characters pretty well! j/k ;)

Thanks for the clip!

January 11, 2009 9:25 pm

Just like Kirk! “Mr.Spock”

January 11, 2009 9:32 pm

ZQ is the sexiest man on the planet.

January 11, 2009 10:15 pm

Chris Pine IS Kirk. I can’t believe how much he sounds like Shatner when he says “Mr. Spock”. I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS MOVIE!!!

January 11, 2009 10:50 pm

i’m beginning to like pine as kirk more, after this.

the delivery of “Mr. Spock” in the clip was a very naturally delivered and clearly shatneresque, and yet Pine has said repeatedly that he won’t being copying shatner’s speech patterns in the role.

so the delivery here is surprising, and almost like pine is saying “oh, i *could* do a perfectly natural shatner-kirk delivery if i wanted. but i don’t. so i won’t.”

which is awesome, since that expression of skill, charisma and arrogance is more “james t. kirk” than pausing between some words.

January 11, 2009 10:53 pm

Geez you guys are fast with this stuff. Like warp speed fast!

Freaked out when I saw them together. Wife thinks Pine’s quite hunky.

January 11, 2009 11:11 pm

damn, them guys got eyebrowz-ah!

January 12, 2009 12:28 am

Damn, Chris Pine has that leading man swagger down cold. That’s all he needs to play Kirk.

Cannot wait.

January 12, 2009 12:29 am

good god… Pine’s delivery mr spock” linecwas. And people are using tha an obvious joke! Don’t expect to see that in his performance. It was just the right amount of inside humor to the HW audience he was presenting to.

Anyone notice in the pics how Chris Pine seems to have a commanding presence? Im guessing hes trying TOO hard to become Kirk.

January 12, 2009 1:29 am

7: It’s been back for a while, but I’m not a fan of Quinto’s tiny monstrosity. Both of them could have done far better for a black tie occasion, IMO…

January 12, 2009 2:09 am

Very the skinny tie! It’s so in right now.

January 12, 2009 2:12 am

see, as opposed as i am to some of the design work on the new movie Im really liking what Im seeing with Pine and Quinto. Pine has the Kirk ‘feel’.
I am looking forward to actually seeing how they play off of each other especially when you throw Urban in the mix.

January 12, 2009 2:16 am

they do look like they will make a good Kirk and Spack.

January 12, 2009 2:16 am

i meant Spock

January 12, 2009 2:55 am

thumbs up! :) the more i see these two, the more i like them!!!!

January 12, 2009 3:19 am

My god, Chris Pine IS Captain Kirk.

Along with pretty much everyone else I’ve always bought Quinto as Spock but Pine has got Kirk nailed!! When he said Mr Spock – WOW!

The Dog Faced Boy
January 12, 2009 3:20 am

Did you notice that the little Shatner joke did not get any response from the audience? Maybe next year they will get a joke like that.

January 12, 2009 4:11 am

39: In does not always coincide with “good looking.” ;) Just saying…

January 12, 2009 4:28 am

Pine is even getting the same hairline as season 1 Kirk!! how in canon is that!!

January 12, 2009 4:33 am

Ok nit pick time…I’m not sure that I’m going to like Kirk taller than Spock…

and #33 since when has “hunky” come to mean skinny, pretty and to young to shave??

January 12, 2009 5:19 am

Pine sure looks like a young Shatner, uncannily!

January 12, 2009 5:32 am

Pine sure can do ShatKirk…. and damn fine. Maybe his dad gave him pointers, too?

Saw a $1 DVD at the Dollar Tree this weekend that is the failed TV pilot “Incident on a Dark Street” that has both Pine’s father Robert Pine in one of the lead roles, with Shatner playing the heavy. Fascinating… didn’t think anyone’s mentioned that Shatner has acted that closely in a show with Pine.

#48 Look at the shoes in the long shot. Quinto’s wearing normal men’s shoes, Pine’s got a bit of a lift. Of course Kirk would carry a roll of latinum in his pocket, too.
