Pine On His Work And His Future
 
<font color=yellow>Chris Pine</font> may have been serious about his work, but the young Captain Kirk has a sense of humor about it all.<p>As reported by <A class="link" HREF="http://www.stltoday.com">STLtoday.com</A>, having a sense of humor helps when facing the responsibility of doing one's best for a highly-anticipated movie. When asked if he had ever met <font color=yellow>William Shatner</font>, Pine said, "We wrestle on Saturdays, Greco-Roman. And that's pretty much the extent of our relationship. It's usually a draw."<p>But humor aside, Pine treated his work on <i>Star Trek XI</i> seriously. "I felt the pressure of being involved in a big-studio film," he said. "When people are paying $150 million to make a movie and your track record is films that are way smaller by comparison, I felt a need to step it up. I wanted to make sure I did my job and did my part and did it as best I could because a lot was on the line."<p>It helps when there is a good director at the helm. "The atmosphere that J.J. [Abrams] created on set was so easy and so friendly and so conducive to collaboration and creation that it was fine," said Pine.<p>Pine hopes that the future includes new opportunities and that <i>Star Trek XI</i> opens doors for him. "I'm really looking forward, knock on wood, I don't want to jinx myself, to more opportunity when it comes to work and what I get approached with, script-wise."<p>To read more, head to the article located <A class="link" HREF="http://www.stltoday.com/stltoday/entertainment/stories.nsf/entertainment/peopleinthenews/story/a86480166ecf63d6862574f7001925cd?OpenDocument">her e</A>.<center></center>

I'm really looking forward to getting more work so I never have to do another Star Trek movie.

Sounds like he's dodging the question because he can't talk about the super-secret Shatner cameo! :eek:

Are you kidding me? Pine completely spoiled it. That is the Shatner cameo. Old Kirk and young Kirk wrestle Greco-Roman style at the end. It all makes sense now!
