1. Pat D. - January 11, 2009


2. SirMartman - January 11, 2009

The hype is starting in NZ

I cant wait for this,,,


3. Adam E - January 11, 2009

Looks like Quinto’s eyebrows grew back alright.

4. Jordan - January 11, 2009

Pine has such a Kirk look and posture.

5. Xai - January 11, 2009

Did the announcer say “Star TRACK”?

6. Jordan - January 11, 2009

Did the announcer say Star TRACK?!

7. Sev Trek fan from yonder - January 11, 2009

And there’s Quinto bringing back the skinny tie!

8. tribble farmer - January 11, 2009

Pine sounded very Kirkish when he said “Spock”.

9. That One Guy - January 11, 2009

Ah, there we go.

10. Kigs - January 11, 2009

God they look good together! :)


11. Enterprisingguy - January 11, 2009

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

12. SChaos1701 - January 11, 2009

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

13. ster julie - January 11, 2009



14. That One Guy - January 11, 2009

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….


15. That One Guy - January 11, 2009

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.

16. Elise - January 11, 2009

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

17. Elise - January 11, 2009


18. OneBuckFilms - January 11, 2009

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

19. S. John Ross - January 11, 2009

Anna Paquin’s adorable.

20. Jordan - January 11, 2009

I think that was the intention. :D

21. Brett Campbell - January 11, 2009

#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.

22. Brett Campbell - January 11, 2009

19 – I’ll second that, too. :-)

23. Spocko - January 11, 2009

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.

24. asylumjn - January 11, 2009


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

25. Brett Campbell - January 11, 2009

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.

26. Canon Schmanon - January 11, 2009

Whoa Anna Paquin is hot!

What were we talking about?

27. The Dog Faced Boy - January 11, 2009

“…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?”

28. Chad N. - January 11, 2009

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!

29. ensignHarris - January 11, 2009

Just like Kirk! “Mr.Spock”

30. Ruby - January 11, 2009

ZQ is the sexiest man on the planet.

31. I'm Captain Kirk... I'M CAPTAIN KIRK! - January 11, 2009

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!!!

32. grid - January 11, 2009

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.

33. Jimtibkirk - January 11, 2009

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.

34. Pelican - January 11, 2009

damn, them guys got eyebrowz-ah!

35. Dave - January 12, 2009

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

Cannot wait.

36. Konar - January 12, 2009

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.

37. Tanner Waterbury (HUGE PINK FLOYD FAN) - January 12, 2009

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

38. Jovan - January 12, 2009

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…

39. commander K, USS Sovereign - January 12, 2009

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

40. The Angry Klingon - January 12, 2009

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.

41. captain_neill - January 12, 2009

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

42. captain_neill - January 12, 2009

i meant Spock

43. TK - January 12, 2009

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

44. Matt - January 12, 2009

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!

45. The Dog Faced Boy - January 12, 2009

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.

46. Jovan - January 12, 2009

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

47. screaming satellite - January 12, 2009

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

48. harris250 - January 12, 2009

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??

49. frederick - January 12, 2009

Pine sure looks like a young Shatner, uncannily!

50. Daoud - January 12, 2009

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.

51. Paul B. - January 12, 2009

Yes, folks, somebody said Star “Track.” Get over it; it’s been happening for 40 YEARS!!! It’s a minor mispronunciation, that’s all.

I’m sure none of you have ever pronounced the “t” in the word “often,” or mispronounced “Porsche” as one syllable (it’s “pour-shuh,” damnit, not “porsh”!). And none of you ever say, “I could care less” when the phrase is “I couldn’t care less” (the first means “I do care” while the latter means “I do not care at all.”)

So, if you really are able to say that you NEVER screw up the language (don’t even try it, pilgrim–we ALL do it!), then you should mock the “Track” talkers. Otherwise, just relax and focus on things that matter.

(Of course, I just wasted 2 minutes typing this, but I dislike hypocritical nitpicking.)

52. Newman - January 12, 2009

Jennifer Morrison is looking good too. Anyone see her in Command & Conquer 3? I sure did. Lots of replay value there.

53. Shatner_Fan_Prime - January 12, 2009

Pine looks more like Kirk off-screen than he does on. They blonded him up too much in the movie; his natural brown locks would’ve worked better. Still, he & Zachy do look good together…

54. Capt Mike of the Terran Empire - January 12, 2009

Leave it to us Trek Geeks to catch Pine sounding like the shat when he says spock. They looked good together and i bet will be better in the Movie as Kirk and Spock. I bet we will see a lot more of them. But it would be kool to see the Shat and Nimoy and pinne and Quinto in the same shot or have a Pic Made Together.

55. screaming satellite - January 12, 2009

49 – agreed he looks alot like a young shatner in the first pic

56. Edwin - January 12, 2009

I am a die hard Shatner fan with low expectations for this movie and even I thought that Pine sounded like Shatner when he said “Spock!”

57. vorta23492392932939230 - January 12, 2009

He was obviously doing a SHATNER impersonation, HILARIOUSLY dead-on, for ONE WORD, but it totally brought a huge smile to my face…

I agree with the above poster who said it was Pine saying “I COULD do Shatner-as-Kirk, if I wanted to.”

Wow, that was hilarious and so nicely played. Nice job, Pine. You have given this hard-core Trekker another reason to be happy this morning.

58. vorta23492392932939230 - January 12, 2009

45. The Dog Faced Boy – January 12, 2009

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.

Actually, there was one HA way in the back, so someone got it.

59. New Horizon - January 12, 2009

37. Tanner Waterbury (HUGE PINK FLOYD FAN) – January 12, 2009 –

Don’t know if you’ve seen any of Pine’s other movies, but he doesn’t have to try to command a scene….the boy just has it.

60. Anthony Thompson - January 12, 2009

Rourke should have been cast as Nero!

61. New Horizon - January 12, 2009

I like that Chris heard the ‘one’ person who got the Shatner joke….and smiled. lol Just knowing one person got it can be very satisfying.

62. Brett Campbell - January 12, 2009

I certainly hope Mr. Pine meant it as something of an homage to Mr. Shatner rather than a mocking.

I don’t think it’s very PC of him to ridicule the performance of an actor who helped create the iconic character he is fortunate enough to be taking over next May. I felt he was on the cusp of doing so with his comment last fall that he did not go to “Shatnerville” in his interpretation of Kirk.

I watched some of “Metamorphosis” again last evening — perhaps TOS’s most poignantly written episode — and Shatner gave an amazing performance in it. The man deserves much more respect than he gets from many people.

63. sean - January 12, 2009

#45, 58

Agreed. A clear bit of teasing that went unappreciated. But there seemed to be a lot of commotion at this year’s awards (lots of people getting up and down, chit-chatting, etc.) so maybe attentions weren’t focused when he slipped that in.

64. sean - January 12, 2009


Ahh Brett, Bill is a big boy and has been more than open to mocking himself, so I hardly think it’s out of line. It’s akin to someone doing a Christopher Walken impression – it’s a very distinct and unmistakable speech pattern. It wasn’t disrespectful.

65. Brett Campbell - January 12, 2009

64 Sean — I suppose you are right, and I am perhaps growing into a cantankerous old fart.

It’s just that I absolutely loved this show when I was an elementary school kid — watching it during its NBC run. I admit that it’s a little tough for me to see other actors taking over these roles, but I’ll try to keep an open mind and heart.

66. Stephan Seifert - January 12, 2009


So here comes the million dollar question, which must be easy especially for Trekkies to find out. ;-)

From which actor did the “HA” come? Who understood the joke?

My guess: Tom Hanks. ;-)

So the winner, who knows the answer and can proof it, will get my ticket from the Star Trek Worldpremiere.


67. DavidJ - January 12, 2009

Wow, it was actually kinda FREAKY how much they looked like a young Shatner and Nimoy up there!!

I’m not totally crazy with how Quinto looks in the Spock makeup, but at least as the original ACTORS they’re spot on.

68. screaming satellite - January 12, 2009

66 – My guess SHATNER! (was he at the awards btw?)

69. Parosu Grasu - January 12, 2009

Nice to see the two together, just like the original Spock and Kirk :)

To bad Veoh is blocking Romania :( i would liked to see the video,.. o well maybe in the 22nd Century they’ve gonna unblock it :)

70. AdamTrek - January 12, 2009

Proof yet again that a tuxedo should have a bowtie, not a necktie and that Germans still love David Hasselhoff.


71. oby - January 12, 2009

Hat’s off to Pine and Quinto for crowbaring in a trek reference into an unrelated event. It sounded just as awkward as it was.

72. sean - January 12, 2009


Really? I think the tie fit Quinto’s style better than a bowtie would have.

73. trekker_in_ABQ - January 12, 2009

Anyone else notice the vulcan salute given as a normal forehead salute from Quinto?

#71 Pine’s “Mr. Spock”? Too bad apparently nobody in the audience is a Trek fan or has a sense of humor.

74. cmdr art diaz - January 12, 2009

Pine looks more Kirk-esque with this longer haircut IMHO, no trek fans in the audience i guess

75. AdamTrek - January 12, 2009

72. sean – January 12, 2009

Really? I think the tie fit Quinto’s style better than a bowtie would have.

Right. Because he didn’t shave. Perhaps there is a reason he didn’t, due to a show taping or movie he’s in that requires stubble, but I think it could show a lack of respect, whereas Pine looked the better of the two, very clean cut, and very dapper in the penguin suit. Quinto was just in a suit, IMHO.

71. oby – January 12, 2009
Hat’s off to Pine and Quinto for crowbaring in a trek reference into an unrelated event. It sounded just as awkward as it was.

Blame it on the writers. They do script these awards shows. It was abrupt and should have ended with either a big guffaw joke or in some other manner. They did the best that they could have done with the material. They even do rehearsals, so they know if this is all funny or not. Pine would have had to have done a whole bit as Shatner-as-Kirk for it to hit the five-martini actors in the head for them to “get it”. I’m glad they didn’t, because people would of thought, “oh, God, the Trek movie is going to suck.” There just doing impersonations of the original cast.


76. Kaiser The Great - January 12, 2009

Boy that was a pretty drab presentation. Where was the corny attempt at humor? “He’s gonna be Kirk, he’s gonna be Spock, let’s not talk about Trek, here are the nominees…” Erm kaaaaay…?

77. Star Trackie - January 12, 2009

Pine just has too much hair for his own good. But if he wore it a bit more closer cropped with the trademark Kirk “spit curl” hanging down he would look great.

Having said that, I really enjoyed seeing how the newbies worked as a team. Their chemistry together seems to work very well. Makes me feel good about the casting…even if Kirk won’t have his trademark tuft.

78. screaming satellite - January 12, 2009

Pine should have screamed ‘KHHHHAAAAAAAN!!!’ into the mic at the top of his voice…it wouldve gone down well i think

maybe Trek will be nominated for some oscars at the oscars 2010?…SFX…score…make up…etc…maybe even a best supporting actor nod for Nimoy???

some of the previous films got noms and a couple of wins

79. Stanky McFibberich - January 12, 2009

re: 31. I’m Captain Kirk… I’M CAPTAIN KIRK! – January 11, 2009
“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!!!”

Yes, I can see how a joint appearance by these two at an awards show could make you jump out of your skin with excitement.

80. sean - January 12, 2009


I disagree. Some actors simply have a more casual style than others. He certainly didn’t look as bad as Sting or Mickey Rourke (oi vey!). He’s younger, less stiff and more at ease. I don’t see any problem with that (and I certainly don’t think the lack of shaving was due to a time crunch, it doesn’t take *that* long to shave). I’m personally appreciative that the awards shows have diversified, in terms of acceptable wardrobe.

81. Tiberius - January 12, 2009

Yes, when Pine said “Mr. Spock”, sounded very Kirk-like.

82. frederick - January 12, 2009

Boy, if a simple phrase done as Kirk got him castigated by some fans, it’s a good thing he’s not doing Shatner in the movie.

But I for one think that a performance of Kirk as a character created by Shatner is going to incorporate certain things that are the same even if not done on purpose. Just looking like Kirk, and acting like Kirk’s character is supposed to be will be enough to invoke Shatner without trying to imitate his delivery.

The more he’s like Kirk, the more he’s lik Shatner, no way around it, or he might as well be Picard.

83. screaming satellite - January 12, 2009

I think Pine will do save a shatner delivery for the closing 5 minutes of the film

84. Andy Patterson - January 12, 2009

I predicted to my wife after the second or so episode of True Blood that Anna Paquin would get the globe (I actually said Emmy) but there you go.

Yay for you Anna, someone with my same birthday, but 16 yrs my junior.

85. Jordan - January 12, 2009

It was really exciting to see them together and very exciting to see Anna get her much-deserved GG for “True Blood.”

86. Rick - January 12, 2009

I have a curious question:

They look almost exactly the same height. With Pine maybe even a little bit taller than Quinto. So, how come everywhere it’s written that Quinto is 6’2″ and Pine 6″?

87. Jefferies Tuber - January 12, 2009

This clip goes to show that the actors don’t really need to do impersonations.

Just one or two lines in an entire film that echo [for example] Shatner-Kirk’s cadence and confidence are enough to set the mood and define the character.

Pine also has great control over his body movements, echoing Shatner’s theater-based stage movement.

88. FranBro - January 12, 2009

I can’t watch the clip at work. What was the inside joke that only Tom Hanks got…?


89. Daoud - January 12, 2009

#86 As I said earlier… it’s the SHOES! Pine was wearing more of a heel, and perhaps more padding on the inside on the heel. He must have been gellin’.

90. Captain Dunsel - January 12, 2009

On the “Track” vs “Trek” front, there are a surprising number of people who actually just can’t hear the difference – to them it’s like Zathras vs Zathras.

And there are probably a great many more who don’t comprehend that there are two *different* words involved. Face it, in how many other contexts does the modern/urban English squeaking world USE the word “trek” anymore?

I think what’s most irritating to Trekkies is not simply the mispronunciation, but the frequency with which it occurs in the mouths of smug, bubbly DJ’s and announcers who THINK they’re being cool and “in” with the fans. Can you say, “Clueless”? I knew you could.

91. I want to beleive - January 12, 2009

I think Chris Pine is going to steal the show when the movie comes out…

92. Kirk's Girdle - January 12, 2009

I like Pine’s hair more now than in the film. It makes him look a little older, but then again, they were probably trying to young him up for the earlier parts of the film..

93. Kirk's Girdle - January 12, 2009

Re: 55

The Shatner comparison shot is amazing.

94. Morty - January 12, 2009

78# I’m loving your “KHAAANN!!” suggestion!!

95. Kirk's Girdle - January 12, 2009

Pine’s posture is exquisite. Quinto, who usually looks very stylish appears uncomfortable and slouchy in his outfit.

96. The Dog Faced Boy - January 12, 2009

Speaking of posture, wonder if they get the famous transporter scene poses down.

97. Spocko - January 12, 2009

Is Pine taller then Quinto?

98. Canon Schmanon - January 12, 2009

Um, who cares if Pine is taller? What does it matter? I mean, come on! Listen to yourselves.

99. The Dog Faced Boy - January 12, 2009

If Pine is taller, it will throw off the appearance of the beam down scenes – could ruin the whole movie.

100. Fansince9 - January 12, 2009

I enjoyed watching Pine and Quinto present the award. As for the Golden Globes themselves though:……………Ummm………very…..uh…..politically…….uhhhhhmmmm……..splattered, shall we say?

101. ByGeorge - January 12, 2009


I never watch any of the awards shows because of all the hot air, egotism, political propaganda, free advertising etc they shove on us. Fortunately this site allowed me to see the only thing I wanted to see – Pine and Quinto presenting without having to watch the rest of the BS.

I cannot understand what there is to rip on about their performance. They were both graceful, classy, spoke well, had fantastic stage presence, charisma and interacted very well together. They both appeared very dashing and handsome – I’ m sure some young ladies are fainting. My daughter has a crush on ZQ now. What more could you ask for?

Perfect casting IMO.

102. Fansince9 - January 13, 2009

I agree, perfect casting indeed. I am glad we had a moment to see P&Q together on stage, but I have to admit that once that was done I changed the channel.

103. steveII - January 13, 2009

Are HUGE caterpillar eyebrows in this year???

104. FranBro - January 13, 2009

Apparently. Jennifer Connely’s have grown back nicely too.

105. Jovan - January 13, 2009

70: I wholeheartedly agree, especially with the fact that he was wearing peak lapels. But those low rise skinny trousers don’t help his physique either. is represented by Gorilla Nation. Please contact Gorilla Nation for ad rates, packages and general advertising information.
