William Shatner to guest star on ABC’s Rookie Blue + Shatner’s version of Iron Man to be released

Although his CBS sitcom $#*! My Dad Says was canceled in May, Star Trek’s William Shatner is staying busy. Shatner will guest star on the ABC series Rookie Blue. There’s also an update on his music career, with news that his version of Black Sabbath’s "Iron Man" will be released on his October album Seeking Major Tom (Cleopatra).

Although we all know William Shatner as Captain Kirk, he’s also well known for his role as T.J. Hooker and the actor will be returning to his cop roots for a guest starring turn on the ABC cop drama Rookie Blue. TV Line reports Shatner will play "a very drunk driver" in the season 3 premiere. Executive producer Tassie Cameron revealed that the role "starts comic and ends dramatic, so we’re hoping it gives him a chance to do what he does so well,” she adds. “He’s got such great range.”

Rookie Blue concluded its second season this past Thursday. Production on season 3 is currently underway in Toronto, Canada.

In other news, Revolver has reports that Shatner will relase his version of Black Sabbath’s "Iron Man" on his new double-album Seeking Major Tom (Cleopatra). Shatner worked with Black Label Society and former Ozzy Osbourne axman Zakk Wylde and Alice in CHains bassists Mike Inez earlier this year for the track.

Seeking Major Tom (Cleopatra) will be released on October 11, 2011.

First! What about the sequel news???

Thanks for the new post.

Any chance we can get an update on AP? Just want to make sure all is well.

This should be something to behold! Can’t wait to see the Shat as a ‘very drunk driver’!! I wonder if he’ll study for the role,hummm…

Wow great to see new articles!

Best regards to Anthony as well

Anthony, where ever you are…thanks for the update!!

Yeah, thanks for the new posts Rosario. You the man.

I hope Shat leaves plenty of time to keep doing “Weird or What”. Definitely my favourite of Shatner’s current projects.

Chicken Little says “the sky is falling! The sky is falling!”. But it wasn’t.

Can we please get an explanation as to why there have been virtually no new posts in the last three weeks?

Well, though it may be a bit out of line for me to say… ITS ABOUT DAMN TIME A NEW POST WAS MADE! As your loyal viewers of this webpage, we ask that SOME notice be given out next time a Hiatus were to happen.

Why couldn’t Shatner have played TJ Hooker on the show? Stops by the station or is consulted in retirement about a case. Now that’s cool!

I love classic Star Trek and I love classic Black Sabbath. Who would have thought they’d ever cross paths?

Win and win!

I can’t wait for Shatner to remake “Barbary Coast.”

GET SHATNER AND NIMOY TO GUEST STAR ON BIG BANG ALREADY!!!!

Shatner… Iron Man… WTF…………………

I’ve seen his attempt at Rocketman, it was terrible. It’s nice to try new things, but some times w have to admit when we are not good at something. He needs to admit he is not good at something.

Listened to it.
Um… time to put on “Has Been” again. Very good collection, that.
This?
Um…

OMG A POST!!!

Thanks for the update Rosario!!!

Will there be any more sifi artilce updating where the rest of holly wood is and especially any hobit news?

MAJOR TOM comes out in Oct and when I spoke to Shatners porducer at the Vegas CON, he said that THE CAPTAINS DVD will be out in Oct as well.

I guess Oct is the month of Shatner…

The Shat teamed up with Zakk Wylde? – BEWARE this might just be too much badassness for this world to contain!

I love Shat’s comedy stuff… but will be nice to see him in a serious role again!

Shatner is one of the coolest guys on the planet.
