Chris Pine on 'Star Trek', 'Jack Ryan' differences - video

By

Chris Pine has opened up about playing iconic roles in the Star Trek and Jack Ryan franchises.

Speaking to Digital Spy, the Rise of the Guardians star admitted that stepping into William Shatner's shoes is more daunting than taking over the Tom Clancy series.

"Star Trek has a very fervent, avid fanbase that is very protective of their characters and their stories," Pine said. "Jack Ryan not so much.

"Obviously William Shatner put an iconic stamp on that role. Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck [all played Ryan] ... it seems to be more easily changeable."

Pine added that he had "no idea" what the first nine minutes of Star Trek Into Darkness, which screens before IMAX showings of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, will entail.

"Unfortunately with our Star Trek world, we are just as in the dark [as everyone else]," he explained. "JJ [Abrams] is the master puppeteer, for better or for worse."

Star Trek Into Darkness opens on May 17, 2013, while Jack Ryan follows on December 26, 2013.

Rise of the Guardians opens in cinemas on Friday (November 30).
