Happy Birthday William Shatner

88 years old today.  

 

Since the 1960s, he's been an Enterprising kind of guy!  Smiley Happy

I'm guessing he will be chosen to head up Space Force.

If he is, sign me up!  I've always loved William Shatner, whatever character he's portraying.  But I've just gotta love Captain Kirk!  Woman Happy

His vitality is fantastic, at 88 or any age.  Love his arch, witty portrayal of "Captain Kirk".  It's fun to spot him in other early TV roles, like in "The Twilight Zone" and "The Fugitive".  Always a standout.

@Oznell   I agree with your post.   And the guy is still working at 88!

I remember him in The Fugitive and The Twlight Zone, esp. that TZ where he is a newlywed and he and his wife go to that diner with the creepy fortune telling machine on their table.  Shatner keeps feeding coins into it to tell his fortune and gets obsessed with it.  Creepy, but a happy ending.

 

The Fugitive I remember has a not so happy ending. He is an  ex policeman murdering policemen.  He'd been kicked off the force and now runs a camp.   As I say, a sad ending to a troubled man.

My sis and I think he's just a hoot! That's a good thing. Watched some reruns of T.J. Hooker recently and that show was soooo corny but fun to watch all these years later. As my sis says (and she's a huge WS fan) "He chews up the scenery"! but in a fun way.

I've been watching reruns of "Boston Legal" lately.  I had forgotten about that show and am so  happy to have found it again.
