Re: Alice Eve character identified? [possible spoilers]
I can more than live with her playing Carol if this is true. Carol's so much more weighty and important a role than Elizabeth Dehner in spite of my lifelong affection for the Sally Kellerman character.
Seeing how Kirk in this new timeline approaches having a relationship with Carol Marcus could prove to be very character-building for Chris Pine and open new doors William Shatner didn't get to explore beyond during his days as a more cavalier and romantically macho Jim Kirk and '60s-style "man of action."
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
