An unknown fact about me-William Shatner gives me the heebies. Chris Pine is able to make my fear of the Priceline Negoitator go away for a while. On May 8, Pine will take on the persona of James Tiberius Kirk:the early years in the J.J. Abrams penned “Star Trek”. The son of a Hollywood acting couple (Dad was best known for his work on “CHIPs” and “The Bold and the Beautiful”); Chris was previously seen as the male counterpart to Lindsay Lohan in the epic fail “Just My Luck” and attempting to fight off his feelings for Oscar nominee Anne Hathaway in “The Princess Diaries 2-Royal Engagement”. He also is an UC-Berkeley grad. Coming up for the 28-year old is the indy film “Small Town Saturday Night”, directed by Ryan Craig.
