Where did you build your character from? Did you pull stuff from the script?
Reference pictures, speaking to Nichelle Nichols, talking a lot to J.J. After I met Zach Quinto and Chris Pine, that changed a lot, talking to them. For some reason’s Zach’s Spock and Chris’ Kirk brought out my Uhura. The conversations and sharing the knowledge of Star Trek, it was all really good. And I saw all the physical things that were important about her that the fans need. It was a mix of all of that.

What actor went through the most transition?
I think we all did because at times I would think that it was Zachary turning into Spock. But then Chris Pine would walk onto the set in the morning with his blown out hair doing the Kirk walk. We were all transforming ourselves into these characters.

NEW YORK — “Bottle Shock,” the true story of a California winery family, will be distributed in North America by Freestyle Releasing.

Randall Miller’s feature starring Chris Pine, Alan Rickman, Bill Pullman and Freddy Rodriguez premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival. It revolves around a vineyard owner (Pullman) and his slacker son (Pine) who join forces with a British winemaker (Rickman) to launch the 1976 Paris Tastings, which put the California wine industry on the map.

The film will be released this year in more than 250 theaters nationwide. Odd Lot International will handle foreign sales on the project at next month’s Festival de Cannes, part of a two-picture rep deal with Freestyle.

Miller co-wrote the film with Jody Savin and Ross Schwartz. He also produced the film with Savin, J. Todd Harris, Brenda Lhormer, Marc Lhormer and Marc Toberoff.

Freestyle also is distributing Miller’s darkly comic thriller “Nobel Son,” which also stars Rickman and Pullman.

Source: In a very brief interview for Hollywood Today included in the current issue of Star Trek Magazine. Star Trek Movie Actor Chris Pine who portrays the role of Captain James T. Kirk, which was originated by William Shatner, seemed very upbeat about the new movie and compared it to ‘Batman Begins’.

You get the birth, the childhood and beginning of the main characters before the five – year mission. That’s going to be great. You get a sense of where they came from and how they began. Plus anyone who is a lover of big action films is going to love this.

Pine revealed that he has much confidence in the new films ability to attract new fans and the actor feels that the movie has the right balance of action and humor to draw back fans as well as attract newer fans too boot.

– Chris Pine who is playing Captain James T. Kirk in Lost creator J.J Abrams upcoming Star Trek movie has a rather surprising method of trying to fill in the black hole left by the iconic performances of William Shatner. Pine says that in seeking inspiration for his Kirk, he has not looked to Shatner but another famous intergalactic space hero – Han Solo.

When asked who he would like his incarnation of the Starship Enterprise captain to most resemble, Pine responded, “I would definitely say Harrison Ford in either Indiana Jones or Star Wars. What Harrison Ford is so great at doing is bringing that quality to his characters that if they could be anywhere else in the world they would be there, but he is not, he just is in the middle of s*** and he has to figure out a way of dealing with it so that he can go back to doing whatever the hell he was doing before the film started.

“I’ve always loved that quality about him in Star Wars, this sense of absolute grumpy manner; the accidental hero. Not to say that I modeled my version of James T Kirk on anything in particular but I think I definitely have wanted to bring that kind of Harrison Ford humour to Kirk.”

I just ran across this video of Chris from this year’s Sundance Festival as he took the time to sit down with Variety. In the interview you hear Chris discuss his role as Bo Barret in “Bottle Shock” and the history behind the Napa Valley Winery’s which the movie is based on. It’s nice to see something recent of him 🙂
