James T. Kirk found for Star Trek?
There's a heavy rumour around that the actor to play James T. Kirk in J.J. Abrams Star Trek has been found, and although there's nothing but those pesky "sources" to go by, it seems as though there are a few of them saying the same thing.
With Zachary Quinto cast as Spock along with Leonard Nimoy playing his older self, Zoe Saldana as Uhura and Anton Yelchin as Chekov, we're already seeing the cast building, but who's going to play the big character of Kirk?
IESB spent some time time to track down some confirmation but they say that Paramount Studios had no comment, and the actor's agency similarly had none, in fact they asked Robert where he had heard that news.
Now Robert suggests that this was a nervous question, however I think that this could also be taken as them being totally broadsided by the news and being on the ball enough to try and find out if it were true and worth pursuing, so there are two radically different options to go for.
So as usual it will have to remain a rumour for now that we'll come back to. Time will tell. Is he your Kirk though?
Meanwhile MTV Movies Blog has one of those inaccessible videos that are, according to them, legally not viewable by anyone outside of the U.S. and Canada. Yes, I'm sure that's a legal thing since you filmed the interview and put it up on your site. (This is perhaps why I'm not getting added to their blogroll!).
Anyway, they have a video where Adrien Brody confirms that he did talk to Abrams about the role of Spock and that it would have been cool to play the role, it just never worked out.
