It’s 51-year-old Canadian and "John From Cincinnati" star Bruce Greenwood!!
Christopher Pike, you'll recall, captained the Enterprise before James Tiberius Kirk. He would go on to vegetate happily on Talos IV.
Christopher Pine, you'll recall, confusingly plays Kirk in the new movie, which hits cinemas at the end of next year.
Greenwood is the third actor to play Pike, following Jeffrey Hunter, who played virile Pike in the first "Star Trek" pilot, and Sean Kenney, who played broken Pike in the episode "The Menagerie."
Now who will they get for Janice Rand?
