Trek rumors

Okay, I really need to go to bed, but ...

Matt Damon? As young Kirk?

I found this through LJ's Boston Legal community. Via USA Today:

Shatner is happy with the idea of Matt Damon playing the new young Captain Kirk in J.J. Abrams' upcoming Star Trek film. "I think its great. The tragedy is that when somebody else is playing you younger, you're really old."

Now, don't get me wrong. I think Damon is a decent actor (although the Team America gag remains funny), and he probably gets a bit less credit for that than he deserves. However, from what I'd heard, I thought this film was going to focus on young Kirk. We're talking Starfleet Academy days ... isn't Damon a little old for the part?

I'm sort of okay with it, though like you I'd prefer they found a younger actor. Damon's proven that he does just fine as a lead in action flicks. I suppose that Damon could play Kirk in the strange Hollywood world where 30 year-olds play 18 year-olds all the time, but in real life he's about the same age as Shatner was portraying Kirk the first time around. And, let's face it, Shatner wasn't an astounding actor, though he did imbue the role with a quirky kind of bravado that the fans treasure. Damon might actually be able to pick up on that. I'm just thanking God they didn't cast Tom Cruise.

Thanks for your well-wishes the other day. I'm feeling much better now :-)
