Okay, so my poll-craziness is coming to an end after this one, I promise!
But I was thinking about how some people Iíve come across in the past wanted Chris Pine to be more like William Shatner in TOS. Iím not sure if thatís a good idea because, to me, William Shatner is to acting what Cher is to singing. They both have great followings, but their ďdistinctivenessĒ is hard to imitate without it seeming like a mockery.
That is why I was glad to see that Chris didnít try to emulate Shatnerís style. He seemed to stay true to the character while giving him mannerisms that came across as genuine for Chrisí portrayal of the character. So, what do you think? Should he have tried harder to be more like the Shat, or was his performance just right. Obviously, once again, the writing had something to do with how the character was received, but Iím speaking strictly about Chrisí performance.
