Saw "Star Trek" tonight, with all those cute young actors... and I'm sitting there thinking what a total hottie "Captain Pike" is.

I kept looking at McCoy and thinking this is the same guy who played Eomer in The Two Towers & RotK?

I know! Hard to believe they're both Karl Urban.

Which one is Captain Pike?  Well, the guy who played Kirk is only a few months older than me and I think he's totally hot.  Honestly it's because of him and Karl Urban that I wanted to see Star Trek at all.  Heehee.

Karl Urban is a total hottie and he was really good in this, but he had McCoy down so well - the mannerisms, persona & speech patterns - it was hard to see through that to his hotness:P  I actually wanted to see it for Eric Bana, who has one of the most full on hot smokin' bods I've ever seen in my life.  Unfortunately I didn't get to see his chest at all:(  I think the cool thing about this movie was the acting really.  Everyone had their characters down to a T, and brought something unique to their roles at the same time.  It was fun to watch.  Not better than Wolverine, IMO, but then, how could you get any better than Hugh Jackman?  Bruce Greenwood plays Pike.  He's one of those character actors that everyone recognizes but he never seems to get any really meaty leading man roles.  Very attractive & talented in my view.  He was the corporate lead guy in I, Robot with Will Smith - who I also think is smokin' hot, btw:P.

Oh yeah, the acting was amazing and the McCoy was particularly good. I wonder if he ever had trouble keeping a straight face, saying the classic lines.

Captain Pike was the older guy, the one who recruited Kirk.  I guess all my husand's grey hair has finally gotten me into the older type. (My poor husband started to go grow right after our baby was born, he was only 33. ;-) )

This is awfully cute, btw: http://thepioneerwoman.com/2009/05/captain_forearms.html

What about Zachary Quinto..?? Talk about Hot spock eye brows and all. But even hotter as Sylar on Heroes. Yummo .  I really enjoyed that movie even though I had never been into star trek before.

Karl Urban is such a mouth watering hunka hunka burning man!!  He also played 2 different characters in the Xena TV series.  He played Cupid and Caesar, although he had the world's worst bowl cut as Caesar.

Karl Urban is forever going to be 'that guy who played Caesar on Xena' to me.  :)

but yeah, i almost didn't want to see Star Trek because all the actors seemed so *young*.  i changed my mind, and thought the movie was great!
