Damon in next Trek?

Cunning_Linguist writes, According to Sci-Fi Wire, there is a rumor about him playing a young Kirk in it.

Actually, the rumor originates from “The Insider” so take it for what it’s worth. With Trek rumors, you just have to take it with a grain of salt unless you hear from the person in question, or see a press release from Paramount. In either case, what do you all make of this news?

    There is actually some physical resemblance there…
    But does this mean we can expect Ben Affleck as Spock?

      Yeoman Jo-Lo Rand reporting for duty, sir.

    I know this line is from the wrong film(s) but…
    I’ve got a bad feeling about this.

      Dude, that’s almost blasphemous cross-contamination you got going on there…

      But I agree with you….

    As far as we know they don’t even have a plot yet. I’d say casting rumours are to be ignored – especially at this stage. If they’re going to shoot themselves in the foot, they’re welcome to do it and they don’t need our speculation to help.

      Shooting yourself in the foot? Awesome.

      APL: you hear a loud noise and there’s a hole in your foot, but you can’t remember enough subjective algebra to figure out what the hell happened.

      C++: You accidentally create a dozen instances of yourself and shoot them all in the foot. Providing emergency medical care is impossible since you can’t tell which are bitwise copies and which are just pointing at others and saying, "That’s me over there."

      Star Trek: You try to phaser yourself in the foot, but an alien probe causes perturbances in the surrounding dekyon field which jams the phaser. Luckily your Starfleet training allows you to cross-circuit to Selector B on the phaser, which promptly explodes and destabilizes the warp core. While using circular loging to convince the ship’s computer to abort emergency evacuation procedures long enough to allow you to reach main engineering so that you can reharmonize the warp core using a pocket lighter and two pieces of breakfast toast, you trip over someone’s escaped tribble and sprain your foot.
