Promoting his appearance at Destination Star Trek 3 this weekend, William Shatner has a "60 Seconds" interview with the UK Metro. Addressing the recent talk about him possibly being in the upcoming Star Trek movie, Shatner had this to say (via Digital Spy):
It depends how it would be written and how they’d do it. But I’m open to the idea."
Bill also offered up this praise for the previous two Abrams films:
I’ve seen the two films JJ Abrams directed and I enjoyed them very much
When asked what it was like watching Chris Pine playing Kirk, Shatner said:
It was like seeing your mortality. Here comes a young, handsome and talented guy playing what I was playing years ago. It makes you realize time is passing – if I needed reminding, which I don’t.
