I think Damon called JJ that he wanted to play Kirk and JJ said no.

Pike at the very least should have been the captain through the second movie. Kirk could enter this one a lieutenant commander or so and have the torch proverbially passed to him in this one.

This would give us another movie with Pike in it, which can never be bad, and would be less... stupid... than giving a cadet the keys to your flagship. You can be the greatest natural leader in the world, but that doesn't give you EXPERIENCE.

Where do you get that idea from? I've already posted the story to the contrary from the horse's mouth.

^Nope, I knew I didn't imagine this.

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.
