Chris Pine: The Next Jack Ryan?

Chris Pine is about to boldly go where many men have gone before.

OK! Magazine reports that the Star Trek hunk is in talks to assume the role of CIA agent Jack Ryan.

Since 1990, the character, which originated with Tom Clancy’s popular series of spy novels, has been played by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck, who last played the character in 2002’s The Sum of All Fears.

Do you think Pine—who’s currently filming the action-thriller Unstoppable with Denzel Washington—has the skills to fill those shoes? Let us know in the comments section!
