damon cast as kirk in star trek xi
August 3, 2006
The IMDb page for 2008’s Star Trek XI, a film to be produced by Lost and Alias creator J. J. Abrams, now contains an entry listing actor Matt Damon as cast in the role of Captain James T. Kirk. This has yet to be confirmed by anyone involved in the production, but, if true, it further cements rumors that the film will be a prequel, perhaps involving a Starfleet Academy adventure with a young Kirk, Spock, and McCoy. Stay tuned for further updates.
