Starbase Britain and ShotoJuko are both right...

Lloyd Bridges, who in the 60s was famous for the "Sea Hunt" series, and Jack Lord, who would go on to TV immortality of his own as Steve McGarrett, were both early choices for the part of Captain Kirk.

Don Knotts! That would've been funny! Someone serious would be Charlton Heston. A little gruff, but he would've been a good one.
