Nnnnooooo!!!!!!
Trek's Abrams Eyes Damon?

(snip)
The Insider, the syndicated gossip TV series, reported a rumor that Matt Damon is being eyed to play a young Capt. James T. Kirk in J.J. Abrams' proposed 11th Star Trek movie.

Citing an anonymous source, the show reported that Abrams (Mission: Impossible III) is so interested in Damon (The Bourne Identity) that he's sought support from the original Kirk, William Shatner. "Shatner gave his blessing," the source reportedly told the show. "J.J. got his approval."

1. I think he is very sexy
but who would you rather have?

Remember that the Capt. Kirk of the classic episodes would be considered somewhat sexist today.

2. No idea
really. Probably some unknown actor as long as he's a decent actor.

3. I liked the idea of a series on the Excelsior commanded by Sulu
the producers didn't want a gay man in command of a starship!

4. I had the same reaction
Besides, Kirk and Spock were never at Academy together. Spock was already serving on the Enterprise under Pike when Kirk started Academy.

7. You know I thought about doing feux dialog
