Shatner in Trek?
Dec. 18, 2007
Shatner, Shatner, Shatner. I know that the two have nothing to do with each other, but the sequence of events saw me hear about his being upset at the snub he was dealt in regards the new STAR TREK
flick, and then see him for no reason whatsoever in a World of Warcraft advert dressed as a Jedi or something. It just broke my heart a little, like he had to stoop to an advertisement campaign that also starred Mr. T. Still, there might be hope for ol' Bill yet, as Roberto Orci, the man who co-wrote the script for JJ Abrams' STAR TREK
reboot, said that "it could happen... [however, the problems are twofold] One, from our point of view, we are still hoping to find a way. Secondly, one of the difficulties that was brought up and discussed with Shatner when we all met him and pitched him ideas is that Trek fans are sticklers for their canon. [And,] unfortunately, Shatner’s Captain Kirk was killed in Star Trek VII.”
And I can kinda see his point. I wouldn't want to see Bruce Willis pop up as a waiter in DIE HARD 5. Still, the Shatman doesn't exactly look the spitting image of his old self, so it could work. And anything to keep the man out of Warcraft commercials...
||Shatner. I'd fight William Shatner.
