Young Kirk to meet old Spock!

EW have been talking to new Captain Kirk Chris Pine about the pressures of playing an icon in JJ Abrams' Star Trek rejig.

Pine revealed that he'd written a letter to Shatner - how quaint - and that he shares at least two scenes with Leonard Nimoy. "I've met Mr. Nimoy a couple of times. He's been on set and we have a couple of scenes in the film, which will be nice, and I'm excited for those."
