A relative newcomer, Pine recently appeared in Joe Carnahan's SMOKIN' ACES, in which he played a neo-Nazi assassin. He's also being courted to appear in Carnahan's next film, WHITE JAZZ, an adaptation of a novel by James Ellroy.
Paramount folk and Camp Carnahan are efforting a scheduling solution that'll allow Pine to appear in both TREK and JAZZ, although Pine may end up having to make a fateful choice.
In a twisted bit of dark, dark irony: TREK overlord JJ Abrams replaced Carnahan on MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE III. Might be kinda...awkward (?)
More on this as more comes in...
