Believe it or not, there is even more video of Chris Pine out promoting Unstoppable and talking about Star Trek. The new Captain Kirk says that he has faith in the Abrams team but hopes there will be more humor in the sequel. He also gives an update on his upcoming projects, talks about his "Pine Nuts" fans and more.
Pine has faith in Abrams team – wants more humor for Trek sequel
Speaking to Hollywood Buzz (video below), Chris Pine talked about the Star Trek sequel and joining the Trek family
Q: What do you want to accomplish in the Star Trek sequel
Chris Pine: I put my faith in the filmmakers because in many ways, moviemaking is not an actor’s medium. You have to put the faith in the people behind the scenes. Between JJ [Abrams], Bryan [Burk], Robert [Orci], Alex [Kurtzman, and the whole gang – I trust them to take it forward in a new way. I do really enjoy the humor in it, so hopefully there will be a taste of that in the new one.
Besides a steady gig for years to come, what has been the best part of joining the Star Trek family
Chris Pine: Really just meeting great people and forging lasting relationships with people I respect, and being able to take over a character I really enjoy.
Chris also says that he is likely to start shooting the Alex Kurtzman directed drama Welcome to People early next year, following his current work on the McG directed action comedy This Means War.
And talking to Access Hollywood, Chris talks about the break that he got by appearing as Kirk:
Clearly that was my big break. A career is like a ladder and there are different plateaus and rungs, and I feel like that got me a couple of notches up and I got a chance to work with people like Denzel [Washington] and Tony [Scott] after that. I will always be grateful for the opportunities that that film offered me and it is a different world definitely.
In the video below you can also see Chris talk about how the script for the next Jack Ryan movie "look good" for but he isn’t counting his chickens just yet.
Finally, Chris was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, where he talked about his "Pine Nuts" fanbase, getting injured doing his latest play, and his recent Details Magazine cover. Here is the video:
Humor has always has a role in Star Trek. Relative to the 2009 Star Trek movie, would you like to see more or less or the same in the next one?
