Think the back and forth between William Shatner and George Takei regarding Takei’s wedding invitation was over? After Shatner’s first biting video and Takei’s response, Shatner has a new video today up on The Shatner Project where he tries to get in the last word, and he also seeming invites Takei onto his new Talk show. Plus we have Canadians petitioning Shatner news.
Shatner: George Takei is being mean to me
Bringing Abrams into the Takei feud? Bringing Takei onto Raw Nerve?
Did you think that was all from Bill?…Oh no. Actually a couple of weeks ago he figured out a way to fuse his Takei feud and his Abrams fued together, with the following snark to Fox news:
I’m deeply disappointed that I didn’t share in George’s newfound happiness,But I am expecting a call from J.J. Abrams to tell me about the wedding.
The question now is, will this back and forth ever end? Bill suggests having Takei on his show Raw Nerve, and that is actually a good idea. Maybe he can bring Abrams on too and they can all go at it!
Canadians want Shatner…as national anthem singer and Governor General?
William Shatner is Canadian, and proud of it. And there are some online efforts to get him closer to his birth country.
First up, according to The Bleacher Report, some fans of the Montreal Canadiens are looking to The Shat to help the team:
Montreal journalist Kristian Grevenor is a fan of both Shatner and the Habs. He has launched an on-line petition urging the Montreal Canadiens to have Shatner voyage home to sing the national anthem during the team’s centennial season.
Canada is scheduled to have a new Governor General in 2009. Following the tradition, the next one should be of English origin. This group proposes the nomination of William Shatner for Head of State.
Born in Montréal, Québec, the bilingual William Shatner is better known for his role as Captain James T. Kirk in the Star Trek TV series and movies. We believe he would be an excellent choice and give a lot of visibility to Canada and take it where no one has gone before.
If you are a Canadian and want Shatner to be your new Captain, join the group.
And if you haven’t seen it before, here is evidence of Shat’s Canadianess.
