What Chris Pine Did in 2013

Wrapping up my series on what each Star Trek cast member of every series did in 2013, we come to the last person, Chris Pine - and I saved him for last because 1) he's my favorite I admit, and 2) his movie Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit premiere was last night and it goes wide tomorrow (and timing is everything).  So many excellent pictures and media goodness to see and share!  Enjoy!

In 2013, Chris starred in Star Trek Into Darkness (as Captain James T. Kirk) and did a voice over for the Star Trek online video game.  He worked on several other movies made in 2013 for a 2014 release - Into the Woods (co-starring as Cinderella’s Prince), Stretch (co-starring as The Billionaire), and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (starring as Jack Ryan).  He is currently filming Horrible Bosses 2(co-starring role).  He was also featured in The Captains Up Close, a Canadian mini-series on the captains of Star Trek, hosted by William Shatner
He was in Paul McCartney’s music video for his song “Queenie Eye” – check it out at and “The Making of Queenie Eye” here -  I am not sure who I’m more jealous of – Chris Pine or Paul McCartney.  Chris also was featured in another music video, “All I Want” for the band The Ivy Walls at  He also voices several BMW ads - – and others here on the BMW USA YouTube channel
He had appearances on Vivir de cine, Alaska y Mario, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Entertainment Tonight, Weekend Ticket, Big Morning Buzz Live With Carrie Keagan, The Late Show With David Letterman, Chelsea Lately and The Graham Norton Show.  Chris was a presenter at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, and the 85th Academy Awards Show, and was featured in the Star Trek Into Darkness TV documentary.
Chris is in pre-production on Z for Zacharia, which is set to shoot in New Zealand, possibly as soon as late January 2014.
He has dozens upon dozens of interviews on YouTube, and many interviews online at various websites.  I have listed his magazine covers in another post - there are too many to list and they are nice to look at and I’ll get distracted.  
Chris does not participate in any social media (and has been outspoken in his disdain, which is a shame).  Personally I think that he should reconsider this stance and speak up; I like what he has to say and I know others do also.  The best fan made website for him is
His movie Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit comes out in theaters tomorrow.  I hope it’s very successful and that Chris gets lots of kudos for it!  I can’t wait to see it this weekend (if I can find a babysitter, LOL).

Here are some of Chris' magazine covers in 2013 - and and and

[If you are interested in the Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit Los Angeles premiere pictures, I published the best pictures of it at and quite a few more at (my other two blogs), even though it's 2014 stuff.]

Have fun!
