Another voice has weighed in on the issue of Khan in the Star Trek sequel, and it is the same voice that made the "Khaaaaaaaaaaaaan!" yell immortal in Star Trek II. At Comic Con William Shatner was asked if he thought that JJ Abrams and team should bring Khan back for the sequel. It turns out Bill has an opinion on that. Also, the man Bill is playing in his upcoming sitcom $#!* My Dad Says has an opinion of Shatner. All that below
Shat says no to Khan
IDW talked to Shatner briefly at Comic Con and got him to weigh on on the question of bringing back Khan Noonien Singh for the Star Trek sequel. Shatner says no:
I think that would be… In my opinion, if it were me, I wouldn’t go back to that well again. I’m not saying that it can be done in a good way, but there’s just so much imagination out there. There’re so many new things that could be explored. Why tap in to what’s been done twice already?
"$#!* My Dad Says" Dad Says Yes To Shatner
William Shatner is starring in the new CBS sitcom $#!* My Dad Says, which is based on the real life Sam Halpern, father of Justin Halpern, author of the popular @shitmydadsays on Twitter. Justin Halpern says Shatner was his first choice to play the father on the sitcom version of $#!* My Dad Says, but he tells PopcornBiz that his dad originally wanted James Earl Jones. But after seeing the taping of the pilot, Sam Halpern became convinced that "the Star Trek fella" was the right man for the job.
