Last night William Shatner appeared on The Colbert Report to promote his new Broadway show and host Stephen Colbert showed his inner Trekkie by gushing with Bill, including saying that when he was on Star Trek he was "god damn beautiful" and a "golden god." The two also arm-wrestled. Watch the clip below, along with another clip of Bill talking to VH1 about alien sex and a couple of clips from his "Shatner’s World" show.
Colbert calls Shatner "Golden God" for Star Trek + Bill talks Alien Sex on VH1
Stephen Colbert has made a good number of Star Trek jokes on his show The Colbert Report, but when the original Kirk William Shatner showed up last night, he was as giddy as a schoolgirl. Watch it.
And Colbert isn’t the only Trekkie that Shatner has had to deal with on his latest publicity tour. While visiting with VH1, host Carrie Keagan also gushed with Bill and even had him sign a Kirk figure for her. They also talked about alien sex. Watch it.
Another TV personality who outed himself as a Trekkie was Joe Scarborough when Shatner visited Morning Joe on MSNBC. Scarborough tells Bill he thought Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan was better than Citizen Kane.
And just for good measure, here is Bill on his appearance on the View, with yet another super fan, Whoopi Goldberg.
