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...
Unless something happened to shunt him on another path, probably a lot like he was in the original universe, which is to say a lot like Pine's Kirk, only with stronger esper ability.
In this universe he'd never be Kirk's friend, because Kirk would take all the good-looking girls.
