Yet more rumors are being flung around the internet in relation as to who will be playing Kirk in the next Star Trek film. The film, which is being spearheaded by Lost and Alias creator, JJ Abrams, is expected to open on Christmas Day 2008 yet the latest Kirk has yet to be confirmed.
IESB.net reported a rumor that 28-year-old Mike Vogel (see in Poseidon) could be the guy to fill the Captain’s shoes. Vogel is already working with Abrams in another project codenamed Cloverfield which is slated to open Jan. 18, 2008 and this link does make the rumor just a tad more credible. Of course neither Vogel’s agency nor Paramount will confirm it.
The cast members who have been confirmed include Zachary Quinto who plays Sylar in Heroes as a young Spock, , Zoe Saldana as Uhura and Anton Yelchin as Pavel Chekov.
