From the Imdb News page:
On the heels of Paramount's confirmation that J.J. Abrams (Mission: Impossible III, Lost) had been selected to direct the next Star Trek feature, reports began circulating on several movie and sci-fi websites Monday that the studio was in talks with Matt Damon, Adrien Brody, and Gary Sinise to play the roles of Capt. Kirk, Dr. Spock and Dr. McCoy respectively. First reported by IGN Movies, a unit of Fox Interactive, and attributed to unnamed studio sources, the stories also indicated that James McAvoy, who costarred in The Last King of Scotland, was "in the mix" to play the role of Enterprise engineer Scotty.
there are two posibilities here. Both awesome. Firstly, and most likely, some idiot fanboy came up with a list of 4 actors (3 with roughly similar appearances to the original actors. and a scottish one) and someone thought it was a real story.
Or, and this is better, someone is actually considering a star trek film starring Matt Damon as Captain Kirk.
WD40. I think it is magic in a can.
