RadarOnline.com has the scoop on Chris Pine's latest acting role and we think Chris in the flesh is even better than seeing him on the big screen!
We were lucky to see the first night preview Tuesday night of the play Farragut North at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles with Chris starring along side an all star cast including Chris Noth, Olivia Thrilby, Isiah Whitlock, Jr., Mia Barron, Dan Bittmer and Justin Huen. We won't give you any spoliers, but Chris Noth surprised us as the political boss, and we loved the sparks that flew between Chris Pine and Olivia during their sexy love scenes!
The theater was packed and the crowd cheered loudly for Chris as he took his bow at the end of the show. And who could blame them? We definitely enjoyed seeing Chris dressed up in hottie suits on stage. The entire cast joined the young theater patrons at an private event after the show, and RadarOnline.com spotted Chris chatting with lots of excited fans.
But he's not raking in the big bucks in this show. Although he's starring in the biggest hit of the summer, our theather friends tell RadarOnline.com that the Star Trek stud did this play as a "labor of love," and was paid favored nation status - which means that everyone in the cast made the same amount of money and our sources tell us this was NOT a big paycheck at all.
So why do we like Chris in this play so much? All we can say is you don't get to see Captain Kirk strip down to his boxer briefs in Star Trek!
