Definitely not too old to play Kirk.
I don't understand that anyway. Yeah, Kirk died in Generations, let's forget about that for a second. Why is it impossible that Kirk gets old? How can an actor be too old to play a character, if the character is his age?
I agree. I just meant he is still able to give off that kirk "vibe" of adventurous somewhat cocky youth. Even though hes 81, which is remarkable.
On the other hand, seeing the very old looking and feeling nimoy reprise spock is mildly depressing to me. Whereas seeing shatner as kirk again would be more uplifting because of how youthful he stilll seems.
Im sure many disagree though
