Chris Pine becomes James Bond Jr.

“My character is like a 14-year-old who got the keys to the kingdom,” Pine says.

“He gets to live the movie version of being a spy, which is driving fast cars and shooting guns and going to exotic locales. He’s basically a fun-loving, hedonistic adolescent.”

In the same interview Chris had this to say about upcoming projects:

In reference to ‘Welcome To People’:

Recently, however, Pine acted in indie movie Welcome to People, co-starring Olivia Wilde and Michelle Pfeiffer.

“It’s a film about a young man who, in coming home to bury his father, finds out he had a secret second family. I’m very proud of it,” Pine says.

In reference to ‘Jack Ryan’:

“Not to take anything away from Harrison Ford or Alec Baldwin or Ben Affleck, but I don’t think Jack Ryan is as iconic as Captain Kirk – who was William Shatner. Jack Ryan has been inhabited now by many different guys – so I am not too nervous.

“The task ahead of us now is to make an international spy movie in the post-9/11 era. It’s not going to be a Cold War Jack Ryan.”

On Being A Spy And Being Stuck In A Love Triangle In “This Means War”

“I play a guy named FDR, a spy who, with every ounce of his being, enjoys being a spy. He is living the Connery-Bond version of a spy’s life until he meets Lauren Scott and his world is turned upside down. Everything he thought was important—namely guns, women, fast cars and good times with no strings attached—are maybe not so important after all. What becomes important to him is winning the love of this woman,” Pine shares of his character.

When asked which one is harder – the comedy or the action, Chris admits that doing comedy is a lot harder than the action sequences. “Though a lot of it was learning how to work the guns. We trained with a specialist who told us about close quarters combat. Essentially the basic precept is to inflict the maximum amount of damage using the least amount of movement. Efficiency and expediency. Conversely, in film you want to make it look grander and bigger to make it look sexier, so it was trying to marry those two things.”
