Yes, the rumor is that they want to ask Matt Damon to be Captain Kirk in the next Star Trek movie. Strangely enough, I actually don't have a problem with this. Probably because I still respect Matt as an actor. The only problem I have with Matt is that he's in his 30s, and the Captain Kirk in the new movie, from what I understand, should be a bit younger (like, by 10 years?). We will have to see how this pans out folks.
However, if they ask Ben Afflick to play the role of Spock, the Star Trek people may start having meteorites thrown at their heads and phasers set to kill pointed at them. I will be the one holding one of the phasers.
