Chris Pine has won the lottery by winning the role of Captain Kirk, which he can play for the rest of his life if he wants to. Has he successfully reinvented Jack Ryan?

Chris Pine is on his way to being the biggest star in the Universe. And he gets to play iconic heroes like James Tiberius Kirk, and now, Jack Ryan. Is it fair? Look at him. The man is gorgeous and he runs like a gazelle.
