Ben Affleck to Captain a Star Trek?

May 3, 2006

ben-afflec-star-trek.jpgThe newest rumor regarding the J.J. Abrams led Star Trek film is that Ben Affleck is in talks to play the lead. Though Abrams has said word that the project will feature a young Kirk and Spock is unfounded, speculation has already grown that Affleck will play the famous captain:

Some others had heard that Ben has also been talking to Paramount about possibly playing a lead role in a new Star Trek film from J.J Abrams. If it comes off, he's apparently playing the hero. Don't know if that's Captain Kirk or some other nameless male protagonist...but that's the gist of it.

I wouldn't be surprised if this is true--at least that he'll be in the film, if not as Captain Kirk. It's been widely known that in the 60's, just behind the U.S. and Russia, the Douchebags had been mounting a strong, yet secretive, run at space. It only makes sense Ben Affleck would lead their eventual victory.
