In which interview had Pine said that...
 
The role of Kirk came down between him and an other guy? I think i have a good guess who that other guy might had been.

I don't remember, that's why i am asking.
Anyway here is my guess:

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1925638/?ref_=tt_cl_t11
http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3158411264/nm1925638


I remeber him looking incredibly Kirkish in Thief wich came out in 2006.

According to Memory Alpha, some of the finalists for the role of Kirk were:

Joshua Jackson (who got his role on Fringe as a result) - Captain Pacey would have been awesome.

Chris Prangley:
Chris Prangley auditioned for the role of James T. Kirk on Star Trek, but the role went to Chris Pine. He auditioned on 24 August 2007.

Prangley has appeared in several stage plays, commercials, and independent films and had a recurring role on the daytime series As the World Turns.

And Mike Vogel:
Mike Vogel (born 1979) is the American actor and former fashion model who was a leading candidate for the role of James T. Kirk in 2009's Star Trek. He had already worked with that film's producer and director, J.J. Abrams, on the film Cloverfield. The role of Kirk ultimately went to Chris Pine.

Vogel was modeling for Levi's jeans that he won a recurring role in the FOX (and later WB) series Grounded for Life, whose regular cast included Richard Riehle. He made his film debut in the 2003 skateboarding comedy Grind which was followed by the remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre later that year. Since then, Vogel has starred in such films as The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Rumor Has It..., and Poseidon. Vogel also appeared in the comedy She's Out of My League, along with Alice Eve, and a regular role in the ABC series Pan Am.

All terrible choices, Pine wins! I only wish Pine were a bit taller and beefier like the Shat was back in the day. It always seems when it wears the gold tunic it too big for him... :shrug:

Coulda been worse, coulda been better.

Take that back. I don't know the other two, and I'm equally happy with Pine, but Captain Pacey would have owned. And Dawson would have been a Klingon. No makeup required. That is an honorable forehead all by itself.

That's the whole point. This is a younger Kirk than we see in TOS. He's fresh out of the academy, he's a hot-head, and he wants to show everyone he's in control. But he's not. Compare the scene of Kirk confronting Harrison with any of Shatner's Kirk confronting a similar foe. Pine's character is firey and shooting from the hip. Shatner's is cool, calm, and collective, and operating four steps ahead.

It shows the differences between the two characters both in age, as well as professional maturity. I think the best example of this is Pine's delivery of "I'm sorry" in the trailer. He realizes, finally, he's lost and fucked it up for everyone else (I think!).

I believe TJ meant it literally. ...That his tunic is the wrong size.

Pine's taller thn the Shatman.

TJ it is funny that you should mention that you wish Pine were both taller and beefier. In one of Pine's numerous interviews (I don't recall which) he said that he really packed it on and worked out because he wanted Kirk to be "bigger" in this movie as he was supposed to be "the captain"..

Don't get me wrong, without his shirt I'm sure many women swoon and he's sure as hell more cut than I am. I can see the point that he's at a stage where he's younger and not really filling those "shoes" or shirt but that tunic is baggy! Shats tunic was tighter to be sure... Cough cough *girdle*. I do like the "he's growing into it" thought, also fashions change. It's not the '60's anymore after all. I still think given the choices he works it. That last clip with him and Cumberbach... WOW! :eek:

It's what I call "man weight." After the baby fat is gone, and the leanness of the 20s gives way to the more mature look of the mid 30s into the 40s. Pine will get his "man weight" someday. We all do.
