Not That I Ever Taught Him Anything… October 11, 2007

Posted by Jim Berkin in Movies.

Holy CRAP!!!!

If this gossip item is to be believed, a former student of mine, Chris Pine, is about to play the young Captain Kirk in the upcoming “re-launch” of the Star Trek movie franchise!

I hope it’s true! He’s a great guy and was a great student as well – and I’ve had the pleasure of seeing him act Albee and Mamet, as opposed to the string of teen-hearthrob roles he’s made a nice career of – perhaps if he gets some Hollywood bank via Trek movie stardom, he’ll be able to show those ranges on screen, finally.

I’d also enjoy it if, for whatever possible reason, ANY successful former student of mine was asked about me, and answered something along the lines of “GOOD GOD, THAT ASS CLOWN???”

Many of you are out there reading this, perhaps. The ball’s in your court!
