Even if the movie doesn't actually confirm he is the same character, everyone is going to assume he is anyway.
Not to steal Mr. Laser Beam's thunder, but how do you figure that?
We Trekkies have made similar connections based on less evidence. As long as the movie doesn't blatantly make it clear that he isn't the same guy, and considering how little is known about Harrison Prime I don't see how that is possible.
But then again, this is the same forum which won't accept that Bolians are members of the Federation since it was never stated clearly, so what do I know?
