Damon talks Trek

07.21.2007
IGN recently got the chance to catch up with Matt Damon while he was doing the BOURNE ULTIMATUM rounds. Fortunately though, IGN are a sneaky organization and as such they quickly dispensed with the BOURNE stuff, drugged him, tied him up and proceeded to squeeze him for information on his rumored involvement in the upcoming STAR TREK movie. Damon was understandably coy over the whole thing, but as IGN reported, I'm sure his reaction will have you Trekkies talking. Personally, I've never really been into STAR TREK, but I believe Damon could make anything great. He has that kind of regular look that makes me think he could literally play any role and not look out of place. Plus, as we know, the STAR TREK project we're talking about is a reboot (always good in my book) and is to be directed by none other than J.J. Abrams. I think LOST is the best thing on television by a mile, but since the whole CLOVERFIELD thing has taken off his stock has gone off the chart in my eyes. Anyway, check out what Damon had to say HERE.
Extra Tidbit: STAR TREK is to be written by the two dudes responsible for TRANSFORMERS. I'll leave it to you to decided if that's a good or a bad thing.

Time for a rewrite JJ

Well this is when you rewrite the movie so Matt Damon can play Kirk. Internet rumors aside. This would be like casting Bale as Batman all over again.

Abrams directing Star Trek XI isn't exactly a shoe-in. M:I-3 was O.K., but most of his action (save for the bridge sequence) was sub-standard in direction and the villain's death scene was just ridiculous. Lost is overrated, James Thoo, and is far from any pinnacle for television: It doesn't even scratch the surface of where Battlestar Galactica is at and continues to go. It strikes me as just downright bizarre that joblo.com employs "writers" that are unenthusiastic about the material at hand

It strikes me as just downright bizarre that joblo.com employs "writers" that are unenthusiastic about the material at hand (Star Trek XI, for example): Dont' get someone who's "never really been into Star Trek" to write an article about upcoming Star Trek news, it's ridiculous! Same goes for the Rambo IV new items; like, why is "James Thoo" writing about that, too, when he/she doesn't even like Rambo and/or Sylvester Stallone!? Come on! Say what you want about AintItCool, but at least those guys are enthused and HAVE SEEN what they're writing about.

Ummm...what?

I can't figure out if that whole sentence gave any kind of information or not.

J.J. Abrams hasnt proved to me yet that he deserved all the lvoe he is receiving. Okay the LOST show isnt bad but he aint alone behind that project. Also M:I-III was better than John Woo's take but still not great piece of cinema. He also was one of the writer behind the awful Armageddon. I dont know, the Trek reboot idea sounds cool to me but Im not getting any more excited jsut cause Abrams is involved especially since those writers of the last two awful Michael Bay flicks are involved.

This movie will suck no matter who is producing it, but I agree that LOST is the best show on TV by miles.

Sounds to me like the answer to whether Damon will be playing Kirk (whatever your opinion of the article above) is No. So why bother with all the rigamarole? But if he's out, I'm definitely less interested. Who needs to see a tweener Kirk? Much less Spock & Bones?

COOL!

I think that Damon is a good choice to play Kirk. He's going to need to shave his head and then put on a toupe' to really capture the likeness of The Shat! Maybe gain 50 pounds and walk around sucking in the gut.
