Kirk is Cast!
While Paramount is expected to make it official any day now, the most sought after position in J.J Abrams new Star Trek movie appears to have been filled.
28-year-old Mike Vogel (Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Poseidon, Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants) is apparently set to be legendary Captain James. T. Kirk. Abrams and Vogel met on the set of Abram's upcoming monster movie Cloverfield, or whatever the heck it’s called.
Having seen him in nothing but the Cloverfield trailer, my jury's still out.
