William Shatner!

The legendary actor joins us to talk about “Star Trek,” Denny Crane, his new show — and William Shatner.

Actor William Shatner started in Shakespeare in the 1950’s. He went huge in “Star Trek” as the immortal Captain Kirk.

Then he went all over. “Hollywood Squares.” The cop show “TJ Hooker.” Acting and ventures large, small, and obscure. Priceline pitchman. Tales of the weird. Then back again as the weird and wonderful Denny Crane in the TV series “Boston Legal.”

Deep in his 70s, William Shatner became hip. An icon. A one-of-a-kind persona.  Now he’s out in a new sitcom, “Bleep My Dad Says.”

-Tom Ashbrook

Guests:

William Shatner, legendary actor, director, and entertainment personality whose shows have included “Star Trek” and “Boston Legal.” His new show is “$#*! My Dad Says” on CBS.
