Chrispine On the Kids’ Choice Awards carpet, we asked Chris Pine, who plays Capt. James T. Kirk in J.J. Abrams’ new "Star Trek," if his clothes were slime-proof.

"Yes," he replied. " I have an invisible plastic coating on."

We would expect nothing else.

So why on earth is the "Star Trek" premiere in Australia?

"I have no idea, but I’m very excited to go there, and I’m working on my accent!"

Does Pine Twitter? "Nope, and no Facebook or MySpace either. Just real people."

Is that a new website?

What’s he doing after "Trek" opens? "A play at the Geffen in L.A."

Here are the deets according to Culture Monster:

Pine will star in “Farragut North,” Beau Willimon‘s play about the world of spin during a presidential campaign. Pine is a Geffen veteran, having appeared there in 2007 in
Neil LaBute‘s “Fat Pig.”

From the bridge of the Starship Enterprise to the stage at the Geffen.

Pretty cool.
