The one! The only! CAPTAIN! KIRK!

Before the movie opens and a whole new can of worms opens with it, Ree Hines of makes it perfectly clear.
Everything we know about Kirk, we learned from Shatner. The man at the helm of the U.S.S. Enterprise wasn’t just created by the late, great Gene Roddenberry. You can’t write a character like Kirk. The swagger, the staccato delivery, the ever-present smirk — those come to life in the actor. Roddenberry gave him a backstory [...] but Shatner gave the captain life.

I don't know. I saw Star Trek last night and I think Chris Pine did a very good job with the role.

Also, he doesn't say "Siberius". He does say "Tiberius". Not sure why the author of the article thinks otherwise.
