“Star Trek’s” recent Captain Kirk aka Chris Pine, is taking a break from the big screen and enjoying treading the boards in his new play, “The Lieutenant of Inishmore.”

Playing an Irish terrorist on a quest to save his cat, Chris told “Extra” that this play is like “being a rock star. It’s two hours, it’s quick, it’s fast.”

Pine is best known for his role as Kirk in “Star Trek,” but the eligible bachelor doesn’t plan on jumping into another sci-fi superhero role anytime soon.

“I don’t think I’d look good in a spandex outfit, to be quite honest with you, so, um, I think Superman is definitely out,” he told “Extra’s” Lauren Sanchez.

Pine, 29, is turning the big 3-0 next month, and this bachelor is perfectly happy being single. “There’s something about… the feeling that I can pick up at anytime and leave, leave no trace kind of a thing,” he said. He’s also content living in his apartment with the same couch he’s had for nine years.

Chris didn’t always have the desire to be an actor, and was more drawn to sports while growing up. “I played basketball and baseball. I was no good by any stretch.”

It wasn’t until college that Pine used theater as a way to make friends. “It satisfied everything I enjoyed about using your mind and being in front of people and the charge of that… it was just a good fit for me. Ironically enough, I had been around it all my life.”

    Funnily enough, I remember buying bedroom furniture when I turned 30. Perhaps it is just something that happens naturally…

    Chris looks gorgeous, and seems very happy. His hair looks really nice now that it’s longer. I hope he keeps it the way it is now. I just hope he doesn’t get some buzzer cut when he plays Jack Ryan (who is supposed to be an ex-Marine). Please, NO.

    Anyway, to Chris, have a lovely birthday and lots of luck and rewarding work on the next films you do – the first being This Means War.

    Take care. Love ya. xox
