BBC: Star Trek film names Kirk actor

BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Star Trek film names Kirk actor: "Little-known actor Chris Pine has been chosen to play the young Captain Kirk in the new Star Trek movie. Pine had to turn down a role opposite George Clooney in the film White Jazz in order to play Kirk because of a clash of filming schedules. Lord of the Rings actor Karl Urban will play Leonard 'Bones' McCoy, the Starship Enterprise's medical officer. The film, which chronicles the early days of the Enterprise crew, will be released in the US on 25 December 2008. The movie will show the crew meeting at the Starfleet Academy and embarking on their first mission."
