Back in May, some of the big buzz surrounding the news that J.J. Abrams was slated to direct a new Star Trek movie and, heaven forfend, Ben Affleck was rumored to be playing the young James T. Kirk.
Fortunately, that rumor was not true.
In a cruel twist of fate, it appear that it’s Affleck’s buddy, Matt Damon, who will be playing cadet Kirk. And there’s already quite a bit of buzz.
Well, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. It’s not like he was on my list of 10 people who would be worse than Ben Affleck as James Kirk.
