Pine modeled his Kirk after Han Solo?

From IGN

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

I can see it a little. Roguish charm with a twinkle in the eye and a quip.

Re: Pine modeled his Kirk after Han Solo?

First reaction is "WTF?" but I guess that's his answer to "young and brash starship captain."

It could be fine, but one wonders why he just didn't model it on the first-season TOS Kirk.

Re: Pine modeled his Kirk after Han Solo?

You know, I suppose it could explain a couple stills that were leaked to me earlier in the day:



Zachery Quinto as Spock lectures a group of cadets on how to bulls-eye a womprat in a T-16.



Leonard Nimoy as Spock uses a modified T-65 X-Wing to travel back to the 23rd Century.

Re: Pine modeled his Kirk after Han Solo?

Before this thread goes into the "Oh no its Star Wars" path it will eventually I would like to highlight the important bit that places the alarming thread title in a bit more context.

"I've always loved that quality about him in Star Wars, this sense of absolute grumpy manner; the accidental hero. Not to say that I modeled my version of James T Kirk on anything in particular but I think I definitely have wanted to bring that kind of Harrison Ford humour to Kirk."
Actors take their inspiration where they can, the method for producing what comes across on screen or stage isn't some simple straightforward thing and must be discovered over and over again in each performance. Actors have different ways of finding their characters.

I can see a certain danger in only looking at Shatner as the model lest the result turns to parody filled with "Shatnerisms" rather then Kirk.

Could be a lot worse, he could have channeled Luke Skywalker... or Anakin...

Bogart, very badly.

Sure, I can live with Kirk Solo. No problem.

Well, the only real difference is that Solo also flew the ship and had 70's hair. So he's like Kirk and Checkov put together.

Jonathan Archer was Han Solo's boyhood hero.
