Chris' Corner: William Shatner turns 80 today!

William Shatner turns 80 today!

I am sure that on March 11, 1931, the date when William Alan Shatner was born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada that few people realized the impact he would have on the world.

This Actor, Director, Recording Artist (?) has had a career that has spanned more than fifty years and has starred in several Television series, namely:
$#*! My Dad Says, Boston Legal, The Practice, T.J. Hooker, and his iconic role as Captain James T. Kirk in Star Trek.  He has also guest starred in numerous other television series and appeared in many movies.  He really seems to relish playing the caricuture of himself that he is now known for, the clipped speech, the pregnant pauses.

To me, he will always be James Tiberius Kirk, captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise, and one of my favorite Star Trek episodes would have to be "The Trouble with Tribbles".


In honour of his birthday,

why don't you and you and you ....attempt to ... talk ... like ... William Shatner ... TODAY!!!

I am a fan and I support you post. Whatever you do, do not watch a celebrity roast of Shatner done several years ago and just released on Netflix. It will spoil, taint, offend and rob you of any positive thoughts in regards to this man, the show or the stars connected to it. I know they were letting their hair down, but it was vile, disgusting and degrading. I do not exagerate.  How this ever got released and pass the Shatner and his business managers astounds me. Perhaps he is so rich and famous, he just doesn't care? He went where many men went before....sad

Hi Chris - He is also a famous star in commercials.  For example, he has appeared in Priceline commercials for years.
