Star Trek has gained another Captain Kirk. No, The Shat has not ended his minor squabbling with the movie and signed on for a cameo. Nor has Chris Pine been replaced as the yound adult head of the Enterprise. Instead, 11-year-old Jimmy Bennett (Poseidon) has been cast as a very young Kirk in J.J. Abrams series reboot, reports Coming Soon.

The movie already has an old, young and very young Spock. So will we be seeing junior versions of all the Enterprise crew? And has young Jimmy been practicing changing the rhythm of his sentences at random?
