Pine Reveals Inspiration for Captain Kirk
 
<font color=yellow>Chris Pine</font> has looked to another science fiction franchise for his inspiration for Captain Kirk.<p>As reported by <A class="link" HREF="http://movies.ign.com">IGN.com</A>, Pine didn't look to <font color=yellow>William Shatner</font> for inspiration in how to play Captain Kirk, but to <font color=yellow>Harrison Ford</font> and his <i>Star Wars</i> character Han Solo.<p>"I would definitely say Harrison Ford," said Pine, when asked who he would like his portrayal of Kirk to resemble. "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--t 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."<p>Pine went on to say that he has "...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 humor to Kirk."<p>To read the article, head to the link located <A class="link" HREF="http://movies.ign.com/articles/858/858172p1.html">here</A>.<center></center>

Heh, I'll have to be extra careful then. For some reason I seem to have a hard time catching my mistakes until right AFTER I hit the reply button.

Not sure he realizes that looking to Star Wars for Star Trek inspiration might be considered taboo in some trek circles ;)
