I can't think of any young actors who would work out. Does anyone here have suggestions for actors to be a young Kirk?

Only a young William Shatner. I seriously can't see anything else working ... but I suppose you could pick someone best suitable ... um ... no young Hollywood actors have personality anymore ...

Does William Shatner have any grandkids that look like him?

In one of the Brady Bunch movies, Bobby's real life son to play Bobby and he was the spitting image.

Shatner has five grand children. Whether they look anything like him or are interested in acting, I do not know.

What age are we talking here for a young Kirk? Late teens or early twenties?

Probably. Seems JJ has got the script all sketched out and it is now being written, and he has officially decided to direct, but, is still being tight lipped about any details. (From SciFi Wire)

That's a great idea. I'm sure there's got to be a grand kid around somewhere. Since Shatner loved the ladies.

Nimoy to reprise role as Spock in new ST movie:

http://movies.msn.com/movies/article.as ... 8&GT1=7701

Young Spock will played by Zachary Quinto, who stars in "Heroes".

Since the movie (Due for release in Dec 2008) is about Kirk and Spock's Star fleet Academy days, it must be in a "flash back" format. According to the article, Shatner may also appear in the movie.
