The current Star Trek cast doesn’t just emulate or impersonate their Original Series predecessors, they’ve BECOME them, while also keeping the characters fresh and current and modern.
Redditor ThatNordicGuy wanted to see just how physically similar the new Star Trek cast is compared to the original, so he Photoshopped the faces of Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, and even Benedict Cumberbatch onto their original, respective counterparts. The likenesses are astounding…mostly. Even with Photoshop, it’s pretty hard to assimilate a dark-haired white man onto the face of a tanned and blond Latino.
