    Matt Damon has been in my part of the world, and lst night was asked point blank about being Captain Kirk in the new film.

    He said "I called JJ to ask what's going on, and he said 'No way man, you're way too old".

    Just passing that on for Trektoday or Future of Trek or wherever you want it :thumbsup:

    Interesting bit of information aussie, thanks for sharing it. And yeah, this thread probably does belong over in Future of Trek. I'll leave a pointer here so people can follow it to that forum.

    Found a news article verifying this.

    Didn't Damon issue a point blank denial a while back? Anyway I've been discounting him for a while. For one thing, he looks too obviously much older than Quinto. They need a Kirk who can pass for 30. Damon is young-looking but not to that extent.

    I thought this would be big news seeing every second rumour pointed to him being Kirk...oh well just passing it along.
