William Shatner is out promoting his new sitcom $#!* My Dad Say (see our preview from last week). And in a new interview Bill talked a bit bout the new regime at Star Trek, including commenting on the new Kirk, Chris Pine. Excerpts of that below, plus some fun video of Bill from the CBS Late Late Show.
Shatner on Abrams and Pine
The Collider interview focuses on Shatner’s new series, but he did talk a bit about Star Trek, here is what he had to say:
Collider: Are you hopeful that something is going to work out for the next Star Trek film, now that you’ve been in touch with J. J. Abrams and his people?
William: I’ve become a buddy of J. J., but I don’t know if they can solve the problem of how you put the body I’m in now with the Kirk that we remember from 40 years ago.
Collider: Did you see echoes of your own performances as Kirk, in what Chris Pine did?
William: I appreciated his performance. I didn’t see what some people have written about, but I’m not that observant.
