That's one bovine physique. The shoulderneck doesn't work for me.
That would be kind of like how Napoleon Solo was muscled up in the Man from U.N.C.L.E. movie with Henry Cavill in the role.
Or Kirk and Spock were muscled up for the Kelvin movies...
Or Pike and Spock were muscled up for SNW...
Spock, in particular, looks YOKED in the season 2 clip. Either Ethan's pecs got bigger or his uniform shrunk! LOL.
De Lirpa Workout is good for pecs.
"It is called Weight Gain 8000, Captain."
"Spock, your ass is ripping out of your uniform trousers."
"Yes. Nurse Chapel noted that. Six times."
"I will correct the issue, Captain, if you want."
"No, I mean I SEE YOUR ASS, SPOCK."
Good for Peck too...
I'll show myself out.
Isn't De Lirpa a singer? Oh what that's Dua Lirpa... the most logical pop singer on Vulcan.
The first one, not so much. Into Darkness? Kirk was ripped, but poor Spock looked just a little on the soft side with his added bulk then they all toned it down for Beyond except for Bones who looked like he could kick everyone's asses.
Would have preferred no Kirk in snw, although that episode was good. Too bad they couldn't have gotten Pine
I'd have an easier time ignoring it if he didn't look so damn much like Jim Carrey. That's distracting as hell. So much that it took me a while to even see the actor attempting a Shatner impression, because I just saw Jim Carrey making strange faces and walking funny.
People complained about Chris Pine, but at least his lack of a resemblance to Shatner wasn't compounded by a striking resemblance to a famous comedic actor.
I do think this guy did a good job, his looks are just completely working against him here. They might as well have cast Jerry Seinfeld as Christopher Pike.
Jesus Christ, this is fucking boring.
Thankfully his voice and bearing undo that.
Looks more like Kent McCord.
I hang out on a Mustang site where a bunch of old 'Stang fans are screaming that the 2024 model "looks like a Camaro."
All fandoms are ultimately the same. There are the same kinds of fans with the same tendencies everywhere.
Yeah, but he was beamed out into space during "And the Children Shall Lead."
The more I look at him the more he looks like a hybrid of thirtysomething Shatner and 2009 Chris Pine.
Memory Alpha has the two guards that that happened to listed as unknown performers.
Sorry, if I'm missing a joke here, but my humor chip is temporarily offline.
No joke, or rather, the joke's on me. I misremembered a no-dialogue actor earlier in the episode -in the scene with Scotty and the two engineers in Auxiliary Control - who had a very strong facial resemblance to 1968 Kent McCord in medium close-up (but different hairstyle) and had superimposed him over one of the doomed security guards. When the pseudo-McCord scuffles with Scotty, he no longer looks like McCord when seen head-on, so that memory is also wrong.
