...some others had heard that Ben has also been talking to Paramount about possibly playing a lead role ina new Star Trek film from J.J. Abrams. Apparently Abrams is coming down to visit the set in a few weeks, to visit Michelle Monaghan, whom he directed in Mission: Impossible 3, so that might add some more fuel to the fire. If it comes off, he's apparently playing the hero. Don't know if that's Captain Kirk or some other protagonist...but that's the gist of it.

Beam me up, Scotty.
Read it and weep SciFi folks.
To mix my pop culture references, when it comes to Captain Kirk, THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!
Let's see if we cna finish out this cast.
Given Ben Affleck as Kirk, who would be equally good to play Spock, Dr. McCoy, Scotty, Sulu, Checkhov, Uhuru, and the rest?
Beat me up, Scotty! Gadzooks this is bad news!
Hah, watch Ben get the role, watch the tabloids come out with news that Ben's screwing around on his wife, watch film have mediocre success, watch Ben and Jen get a divorce.....
As Captain Picard would say:
"Red Alert, Raise Shields, Ready Phasers, Arm Photon Torpedo bays"
I tried to like Ben Affleck. He's a handsome guy and acting isn't exactly rocket science. But for the life of me I cannot watch him without wonderdering why anybody would hire this guy and put him in a movie that actually is expected to make money. He just can't act. It's too bad but it's a fact.
So Ben Affleck as Cap'n Kirk is a deal killer for me.
Spock: Keanu Reeves (he can't show emotion anyway)
Scotty: Claudia Christian (BSG transgender move)
Sulu: Grace Park (the other BSG transgender move)
Chekhov: Vin Diesel
Uhura: Queen Latifah
But seriously folks, while I'm not a Trek fan, I DO love Shatner and wouldn't want arse-clown like Affleck play the role Shat made famous. This is just wrong on SO many levels!!!
Spock would have to be either Vin Diesel or maybe the WWE's Undertaker....
Dr. McCoy is obviously a deadringer for Larry the Cable Guy
Scotty should be that red-headed guy from BraveHeart....
Sulu - Well I'll get back to that. The only person I could come up with was Johnny Weir(d).
Checkov should be 7'3" Russian Boxer Nicoli Valuev
Uhuru could be Beyonce Knowles or Lil Kim LOL
Kirk should die with Shatner!
"Given Ben Affleck as Kirk, who would be equally good to play Spock, Dr. McCoy, Scotty, Sulu, Checkhov, Uhuru, and the rest?"
Dennis Kucinich as Spock (at least the haircut matches)
Also, I'd like to see the internet's Star Wars Kid as Scotty. Just because.
I soooo needed that. Thanks!
He's not even worthy of a red shirt.
