CHRIS PINE

Portraying Captain James T. Kirk of the Enterprise, Pine's on-screen alter ego is tasked with capturing a rogue Starfleet agent responsible for a bombing in London in Star Trek Into Darkness – a task he hesitantly embarks on while grappling with his leadership abilities. "He's not a caped crusader. He's not Batman, he's not Green Lantern, he's not Superman," Pine told Nerdist.com. "He's just a man going through a major existential crisis about his identity."
