Battle of the Kirks

This picture seems too awesome to be real, but I assure you that it is. That’s William Shatner, Captain Kirk of old, arm wrestling Chris Pine, Kirk for a new generation in JJ Abram’s Star Trek series.

The show isn’t as random as you’d think however, as it does come with a story. Shatner is currently filming a documentary retrospective called “The Captains,” where he goes around and interviews all the old Star Trek captains from the various shows over the years. On his list are Patrick Stewart (The Next Generation), Avery Brooks (Deep Space Nine), Kate Mulgrew (Voyager), Scott Bakula (Enterprise) and Mr. Pine seen above. Why the arm wrestling? Shatner explains:

“He’s shy,” Shatner says of the 30-year-old actor who took over the role of James T. Kirk in 2009′s Star Trek prequel/reboot. “So the way I started the interview, I put out a table and chairs outside the Paramount gates, and arm-wrestled with him. That was the beginning of my interview with him. I think it broke the ice, that’s for sure.”

I wonder who won? I bet Shatner had that giant guy fro the Priceline commercials step in and  slam Pine’s arm down before jumping up and shouting “There can only be one Kirk!”
