STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS

Comic Book Movie spoke with "Star Trek" casting directors April Webster and Alyssa Weisberg about bringing Chris Pine on to play James Kirk.

"Chris was a lifesaver," Webster told CBM, "because we really wanted someone who could give us the cockiness but still be likable. If you look at the old episodes of Shatner and that character, he was always snarky, but there was also something enormously appealing about him. There was this sort of evil smile on his face whenever he'd see a beautiful woman. We were looking for a quality for each person and then something of a resemblance, but definitely a quality."
