JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT

CHRIS PINE (Jack Ryan) has emerged as one of Hollywood's hottest actors. Currently starring in two major motion picture franchises, Pine's resume is as extensive as it is versatile.

Most recently, Pine reprised his role as James T. Kirk in Paramount's sequel to Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness. The film was once again directed by J. J. Abrams and was a critical and commercial success, grossing more than $462 million worldwide. Chris will next be seen as the title role of Jack Ryan, for director Kenneth Branagh and opposite Keira Knightley and Kevin Costner. Based on the Jack Ryan character created by bestselling author Tom Clancy, the film is a contemporary action thriller set in the present day and follows a young Jack as he uncovers a financial terrorist plot. It will be released in January, 2014.

He recently wrapped production on Rob Marshall's musical comedy, Into the Woods alongside Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep and Anna Kendrick and will make a cameo appearance in Joe Carnahan's upcoming comedic thriller, Stretch. Pine is currently shooting the highly anticipated sequel to Horrible Bosses, joining original cast members Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx, and Kevin Spacey. Chris and Christoph Waltz portray the new adversaries standing between the guys and their dreams of success.

Last year, Pine lent his voice to the DreamWorks animated feature Rise of the Guardians with Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher and Jude Law. He also starred opposite Michelle Pfeiffer, Elizabeth Banks and Olivia Wilde in the drama, People Like Us and co-starred with Reese Witherspoon and Tom Hardy in the 20th Century Fox action-comedy, This Means War.

Previously, Chris starred opposite Denzel Washington in the FOX feature film Unstoppable directed by Tony Scott. In 2009, Pine starred in Paramount's box-office smash-hit feature film Star Trek for director J. J. Abrams. The film chronicled the early days of Kirk and his fellow USS Enterprise crew members. Additional feature credits include the Paramount Vantage film Carriers, the educational animated feature Quantum Quest: A Cassini Space Odyssey, Bottle Shock for writer/director Randall Miller, the independent feature Small Town Saturday Night for writer/director Ryan Craig, Joe Carnahan's gritty ensemble drama Smokin' Aces for Working Title Films and Universal Pictures, Blind Dating costarring Eddie Kaye Thomas and Jane Seymour, the Fox/New Regency romantic comedy Just My Luck opposite Lindsay Lohan and The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement opposite Anne Hathaway.

On the stage, Pine was most recently seen starring in Martin McDonagh's The Lieutenant of Inishmore at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles. In Bob Verini's review for Variety, he called Pine's performance "spookily, spectacularly good" and went on to remark that "Inishmore audiences are present at the launch of what promises to be a truly remarkable stage career." In March, 2011 Chris was awarded "Best Lead Performance" by the LA Drama Critics Circle for his performance.

Pine also received rave reviews and a 2009 Ovation Award nomination for his performance in the drama Farragut North starring opposite Chris Noth at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles. His additional stage credits include the Neil LaBute play, Fat Pig, also at the Geffen Playhouse, and The Atheist, a one man show performed off off Broadway and multiple productions at The Williamstown Theatre Festival, among many others.
