Pine: William Shatner’s Kirk More Iconic Than Ford/Baldwin/Affleck’s Ryan
Speaking to Digital Spy, Chris Pine contrasted the challenges of taking on the roles of James T. Kirk in Star Trek and Jack Ryan (for Jack Ryan). Pine said.
"Star Trek has a very fervent, avid fanbase that is very protective of their characters and their stories. Jack Ryan not so much…Obviously William Shatner put an iconic stamp on that role. Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck [all played Ryan] … it seems to be more easily changeable."
