– 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.”

Any resemblance to Han Solo?

Star Trek is currently filming in L.A and is scheduled for released in May 2009, when we’ll find out if the 27 year-old actor has managed to fulfill his own lofty ambition.

Enetainment posted their 30 Under 30: The Actors, listing Chris as their 27. Also I’ve added another hot photo from the recent Justin Stephens Photoshoot I recently added.

AGE 27

BROKE OUT IN… Joe Carnahan’s flashy, amped-up shoot-out flick, Smokin’ Aces.

WHY HIM Because of all the young men in the whole wide world, J.J. Abrams decided to make him the captain of his newest enterprise, the revamped Star Trek.

WHAT’S NEXT Um, Trek. And a flick about wine, Bottle Shock, that played this past Sundance.

I just happen to find yet another new photoshoot (yay!) of Chris, which was obviously taken at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. The photo was taken by photographer Justin Stephens for Entertainment Weekly Magazine. For those who don’t know next to Chris on his left is actress Rachel Taylor and to his right Eliza Dushku, which both star in the film “Bottle Shock” with him.

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 🙂
