Except when he's Gary Mitchell, which is essentially who Pine was playing.
I'm not suggesting that the creators had Gary in mind when they wrote Kirk, just that the rather standard-issue charming bad boy depicted by Pine has more in common with Mitchell than with the Kirk of TOS, particularly of S1 TOS.
Interesting to see what Gary turns out to be like in this universe...
