I think Damon called JJ that he wanted to play Kirk and JJ said no.
Where do you get that idea from? I've already posted the story to the contrary from the horse's mouth.

Abrams: I went to Damon for the role of Kirk’s father, and he declined in the most gracious and understandable and logical of reasons. We lucked out with Chris Hemsworth, and he did a great job. Maybe it would have been distracting to have someone as massively famous as Matt Damon in that role. … The decision was made very early on to have actors who were not necessarily the most famous but the most right for the role.
