The National Ledger, as reported by Trekweb, Chris Pine is ready for the fame that portraying James T. Kirk will bring him.

Wow. If Pine's immitation of Kirk is as spot on as his immitation of Shatner's arrogance, I may just have to change my mind about seeing this film.

Anyone who hasn't at least thought rude things about TPM should be disqualified from writing a Bazooka Joe gum wrapper, much less for Star Wars.
