The Battle of Captain Kirks – William Shatner and Chris Pine arm wrestle

Greatest geeky picture of the day

Ever wondered who would win in an arm wrestling match – William Shatner or Chris Pine? The original Captain Kirk of Star Trek (Shatner) came face-to-face with the current incarnation (Pine) whilst filming his documentary The Captains. Shatner has interviewed Patrick Stewart, Kate Mulgrew, Avery Brooks, Scott Bakula and, of course, Chris Pine.

Shatner said: “He’s shy. So the way I started the interview, I put out a table and chairs outside the Paramount gates, and arm-wrestled with him. That was the beginning of my interview with him. I think it broke the ice, that’s for sure.” But it looks like we’ll have to wait to watch the documentary to find out who won in the battle of the guns. Who would you put your money on?

Watch The Captains on the EPIX Channel, July 21st 2011.
