Matt Damon Sets the Star Trek Record Straight

Guess that means no Affleck as Spock...

For months we’ve heard some sort of rumor connecting Matt Damon to J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Trek film. And now the actor has come out and offered the final word.

“Complete internet rumor,” is basically what Mr. Damon told IGN Movies while spending time on the Bourne Ultimatum press tour. The actor mentions that William Shatner gave him the seal of approval, but also that Abrams is looking for someone in his early 20s. And as good an actor as Matt Damon is, he’d have trouble pulling of “21” with a straight face.

But it IS Comic Con week, so don’t be surprised if we get some juicy new tidbits on this particular project.

If you’d like to see the video interview in which Damon (briefly) discusses his (non-) connection to Star Trek 11, check the source link below.
