Hot Guys of the ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ LA premiere: who would you rather?

There was no Benedict Cumberbatch at last night’s LA premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness. I found that depressing, although I’m sure the Anti-Cumby Brigade will rejoice. Why do you hate The Batch so much?! He’s amazing.

So here are some photos of “Hot Guys” of STID. Chris Pine is (thankfully) still rocking that amazing beard, and he really knows how to wear a suit. Karl Urban also came out for the premiere, which I’m sure will please the growing band of Urban Fan-Girls (Urbanites? Urban-heads?). John Cho was there too! Cho has been largely absent from the STID promotional tour and I’m not sure why. Zachary Quinto has been trying out a fauxhawk throughout the tour, to mixed results, although I kind of think he’s pulling it off here.

So who would I bang in the absence of The Batch? Hm… probably just Chris Pine. I think Karl Urban is sexy, but I’m more into Pine these days.

PS… Chris Pine brought his dad, actor Robert Pine, as his date. Which I find completely adorable.

    (fanning and drinking ice water … it isn’t helping!) I’ll take Chris Pine and Karl Urban, you guys can have the rest. :)

    • Jenna says:

      -_- *notes your name down on my hit-list*

    • Nemesis says:

      I’ve lusted after Karl ever since he was Cupid on Xena Warrier Princess!

    • Camille (TheOriginal) says:

      Karl Urban for me too please!

      I’ve been a fan of him since his days on soaps on New Zealand TV! I’m so glad to see that he is gathering a lot more fans from all around the world (and I LOVE that he is a true Kiwi and the Aussies can’t claim him LOL ;) ).

  2. T.Fanty says:

    I think I would go for a Cho/Quinto combo, in the absence of our little funeral director. Afterwards, I would have a little fun making Chris Pine weep using criticism cunningly disguised as sage advice.

    • Eve says:

      Those would be my choices as well (Cho/Quinto). I’d be fine with them making out with each other in front of me, too.

      @ Kaiser:

      “Karl Urban also came out for the premiere, which I’m sure will please the growing band of Urban Fan-Girls (Urbanites? Urban-heads?).”

      I call them “Urbanians

      • T.Fanty says:

        I’m actually feeling super lazy today, so yes. Sign me up for that. I’ll bring margaritas.

      • T.Fanty says:

        Plus, you and I together could really break Chris cry by talking about how Cumby is the *real* star of this movie. I think that would tip him over the edge.

      • drea says:

        Haha, Urbanians… I suppose I’m one of those, but I’m not really feeling his styling here. It’s like someone dragged him off the plane and stuck a suit straight off the rack on him.

        Cho and the others look pretty good. Pine’s meant to look sharp but something about the cut of his suit is a bit old-fashioned for me. (Edit: I think T.Fanty’s comment below nailed it.)

    • j.eyre says:

      I’ll take Cho when you guys are done with him. Can I make Chris cry in the meantime?

  3. Andrea says:

    Ergh, I love Karl Urban.

    • lolaluvsu says:

      Yes, I’ve loved Karl since his Xena days!

      • andrea says:

        Oh my gosh, I forgot about Xena. (I was youngish when that show was on). But I remember watching Chronicles of Riddick and thinking he was hot.

        Maybe I should try to watch Xena again, I know for sure there was probably a lot of stuff I didn’t understand when I first watched it!

    • INeedANap says:

      Pine and Quinto and Cho are perfectly pretty, but the only one that looks like a man there is Urban. Look at his smile! He knows what to do…if you know what I mean. ;)

    • geekychick says:

      Eomer and Dr. Bones forever!!!! I waited for Dr. Bones to appear in the movie. Kirk is the weakest link for me.

      • andrea says:

        I am very very excited to see this movie. I love Star Trek, and Karl Urban is Bones?! Yesss.

    • Apples says:

      I love that Gunslinger stance Urban has in his solo photo above! LOL!!!

  4. Jenna says:

    *licks Karl up and down* FINALLY!!! My baby!!! I’ve been waiting for these pictures all morning! :D

    That being said, you vulturous bitches stay back. I’ve been watching you hussies come out the woodwork! -_-

  5. Badirene says:

    Chris Pine please, if you’re offering.

    • Londongal says:

      The Pine is taller than Karl Urban?! WTF?! Beard + Height revelation = I would smash pine to bits. *That’s* how shallow I really am!

    • Mia 4S says:

      Dammit! I thought I was the only one who had figured out that Chris Pine is actually tall, not just “Hollywood” tall. Time to fortify my position at the front of the line! ;-)

  6. Lipsy says:

    John Cho is ageless! He’s handsome.

  7. Agnes says:

    Karl Urban. He’s next in line after Cumby. And maybe Chris Pine later :)

    According to imdb they are filming now “That Burning Feeling” where John Cho is playing Roger Whitacre. That’s why he might have been absent during the promotional tour.

  8. someone says:

    john cho, please and thank-you. that man hasn’t aged since harold and kumar. so gorgeous.

  9. marie says:

    Pine since he has the scruff, but honestly I’d rather John Cho..

  10. MisJes says:

    Chris Pine looks amazing, love the suit.

    I don’t exactly dislike Cumberbatch, but I do find him bland, WAY over-saturated on this site, and it blows my mind that people find him sexy.

    • Apples says:

      Cumberbatch is SUCH a great actor. It’s just one of those things- you have to see him in action. While you don’t have to like him- at all- saying he is over-saturated on this site is like a declaration of war. LOL. Best of luck to you and watch your back. ;)

    • bluhare says:

      Totally agree re Cumberbatch. we’re a minority of two.

  11. Anna says:

    Pine is wearing the HELL out of his suit. But WTF is with ZQ’s wardrobe on this tour? Was it as bad in 2009?

  12. eviec says:

    I can’t believe I didn’t know that was Chris Pine’s dad!! He was great on CHiPs! LOL Now that I know it, that is all I can see when I look at Chris Pine.

    I have loved Karl Urban for a long time but, as an old married lady I won’t dip my toe into the fray that usually ensues over who gets what handsome star. :)

    • V4Real says:

      Awww come on; join in on the fun.

    • Anoni Mus says:

      Yeah, me too! As a child of the (late 70s) 80′s, it just blew my mind that Robert Pine is Chris Pine’s dad! Loooved to watch CHiPs!

  13. pretty says:

    Chris Pine’s hairstyle here ages him so much! That look is so cheesy.

  14. Birdie says:

    I find it hilarious that his name is Karl-Heinz Urban. Granddads with beer bellys have this name in Germany. But he is hot though and brilliant in STID. Pine and Quinto grow on me, loved them together in the movie. I am basically a Kock shipper now.

  15. RobN says:

    Karl Urban makes me all tingly, but I’m not sure how much of it is just because he plays McCoy and the original McCoy made me all tingly, too.

    As for Chris Pine, the suit looks too small and he’s wearing brown shoes with a blue suit. I normally like him, but don’t like this look at all.

  16. Kate says:

    Karl Urban is gorg. But I’ma have to give it to Cho.

  17. trillian says:

    Why pick? I’ll take them all. Good thing Cumberbatch isn’t there because I would totally leave him behind.

  18. NicolaGossips says:

    Saw Karl Urban at the Dredd premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last year. He is so much better looking in person (his nose doesn’t photograph well). Plus he’s funny with a yummy accent.

  19. Helvetica says:

    To me, the only hot guy there is John Cho. He looks great in that suit.

  20. Anoni Mus says:

    Even with the strange suits, mohawked hair and caterpillar eyebrows, Zachary Quinto is doing it for me.

  21. Mia 4S says:

    One of each please…but heavy on the Pine. ;-) Not pictured but there, I’ll also add my darling silver fox Bruce Greenwood to the mix!

    Also unless I miss my guess I think we now know where Chris got those gorgeous eyes! Hey Dad!

  22. Maya Dragunova says:

    I wanna make Chris cry.

  23. honey says:

    People dislike cumberbatch because this site and some fangirls are so over the top about him like he is the second coming. You get attacked if you just say he is not that handsome or odd looking lol.
    Its like a backlash because we are being told he is the most amazing ever all the time. And some just dont see it, they see an average to odd looking guy with some talent and brains but its not like he is daniel day lewis or something. Maybe if you guys werent so over the top people wouldnt backlash on him so much.

    • Nerd Alert says:

      Completely agree. He isn’t really a “thing” outside of this site and his cult following, either. I’ve seen him act, he’s decent, but IMO not really attractive. Daniel Day Lewis he is not. It’s weird to get verbally assaulted over expressing such a tame opinion of someone.

    • MisJes says:

      Completely on this train. If he wasn’t shoved down my throat daily, I would perhaps be more ambivalent towards him – instead I’ve come to dislike him.

      All of the fan-girls insist that you need to see him in action to understand the appeal. Well I have, and sure – he’s decent. But forgettable.

    • Mirror says:

      Yap. His fans do him no favors. They are a small band but loud and aggressive.

      And hes quite the douche too. I cant get behind a guy who repeatedly disses other peoples work (Downton and Elementary) and compares himself to others constantly (Fassy, Hardy and Macavoy). Even if I could get passed the looks, his personality would stop me cold.

  24. honey says:

    Pine looks handsome and Quinto looks great. I read an interview with Quinto he is a really intelligent man. Well spoken and thoughtful and such a cool guy for having the balls to be an out gay movie star in hw. My admiration for him has grown a lot.

    • Lauli says:

      I totally agree on Zachary Quinto. He really is a fantastic person … with balls.

    • bluhare says:

      Quinto for sure. The only one that is even remotely interesting to me since Jean Luc Picard retired. :)

      He was on Bill Maher last Friday and was great.

  25. Mrs. Darcy says:

    Blah! Where is my little Russian cutie Anton Yelchin (plays Chekov)?

  26. Apples says:

    Usually Pine does it for me but the upper, mustache part of his his beard looks a little asymmetrical and wonky here. I’m anal enough to be too distracted, and unable to focus on the rest of his hotness.

  27. Gretchen says:

    A John Cho and Karl Urban sandwich please, i’ll be the filling.

    Then I think I’d ask John to go pick up some ice cream for some one on one time with Karl.

  28. I'm Gonna Leave Soon says:

    Didn’t know that dude was Chris Pine’s dad!! Can’t remember what he’s been in?

    Also he is standing strange in that that last photo. I want to move his feet!!

  29. Nerd Alert says:

    I’ll take Quinto…if he ever decides to switch teams. Mmmm, Spocky.

  30. Ari says:

    urban ftw for me

  31. M says:

    Has Chris Pine always been so…squinty?

  32. Stubbylove says:

    Harold all the way!

  33. NEENAZEE says:

    Caught Zachary Quinto on Bill Maher last week… smart, sexy, informed, definitely bangable!

  34. DAFFY says:


  35. Chickie Baby says:

    GOODNESS! That’s a mighty fine batch of Men In Suits! Thank you!

  36. Emily says:

    John Cho. No contest.

  37. I Choose Me says:

    Zachary and John Cho. I know Zach has a boyfriend but a girl can still dream.

  38. Ryan says:

    Cho fo’ sho!

  39. Miss M says:

    Easy: Karl Urban!!! (Sorry, Jenna!)

  40. Carolyn says:

    When I see Karl Urban’s name I think Keith Urban…what’s he doing here?

    Chris Pine has a beautiful face…those eyes!

  41. LittleDeadGirl says:

    I’m so excited to see the movie. Love Chris Pine. LOVE LOVE Karl Urban and glad to see all the love here is getting from your girls. I think the movie will be fantastic.

    • Lucrezia says:

      I’ve seen it … and it is, indeed, fantastic :)

      A work-mate saw it last night, and the first thing she said to me this morning was: “Words cannot express how awesome Star Trek was!”

      • SarahS says:

        I saw it last night too, and it was fantastic.

        And yes – first time seeing Cumberbatch in action, and now I get it. The voice swayed me.

  42. SE says:

    Karl Urban, then Cumby, then Chris Pine. Repeat. :)

  43. lisa2 says:

    John Cho is the only one that knows how to pose on a RC. He has a little swagger going on. The others are attractive, but the swagger is missing. I live Carl Urban.

  44. What’s up, everything is going nicely here and ofcourse every one is sharing data, that’s really good,
    keep up writing.

  45. Mew says:

    Urban. I don’t know, I’m just totally obsessed with his Dredd. And his voice.

  46. Sabrina says:

    Ah, Karl, Karl.

    But I will pass on the “urbanite” label, because, correct me if I’m wrong, didn’t some wacko fan calling herlself an urbanite tracked down and stalked his home and family down in New Zeland?

  47. Jayna says:

    OMG, Chris Pine is on Ellen right now, and I have fallen in love with him. He’s adorable and gorgeous.

  48. Ravensdaughter says:

    Okay, I was doing a little research online for an upcoming naughty weekend with the man who has become my vacation BF-I’m single and doing a bit of’ cougaring-and I saw Chris Pine nude, parts and all. VERY nice, if true, although something I discovered is there a lot of fake nude celebrity photos out there floating around, but usually they are of women.
    Did he pose for a magazine recently? If so, maybe I should switch prey….

    • Ravensdaughter says:

      Double checked-faked photos, although Chris was in tighties and also in an “athletic supporter”-sporty!

  49. Jettgurrl says:

    Karl for the win. Loved him since he played Caesar on Xena.
