Mike Vogel cast as Capt. Kirk in new Star Trek movie

That is being directed by J. J. Abrams:

The cast of the Star Trek movie is taking shape and it's not a bunch of big names. says director J.J. Abrams -- you might know him from such fine fare as Lost and Alias -- is leaning toward Mike Vogel to play Captain Kirk. Vogel is currently working on Abrams's monster movie, and previously was in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
I didn't even know that Abrams was directing a new Star Trek movie, I can't wait to see what direction he takes the series in. I wonder what type of enemies Kirk will battle (read this for context) with Abrams at the helm. A secret parallel Federation ship looking to exploit instead of explore?
