Darling Men: William Shatner


I think William Shatner is one of the most brilliant comedic actors of all time. In his current project Boston Legal he plays a ludicrous egomaniacal lawyer who's outrageous behavior is constantly causing trouble. I think Boston Legal is a smart, irreverant comdey that occasionally veers into self ritchousness but generally manages to be highly entertaining. I just wish Shatner was doing more projects. I think one of my favorite things about him is his self deprecation, which I think is what helped him progress beyond his role as Captain Kirk. It is usually difficult for actors to progress beyond such a defining role, but Shatner has done it with style!

William Shatner is awesome! What more needs to be said? I think his role on Boston Legal is great and the clip you have up on your website is priceless.

Here's another interesting note. Later on during that roast of George Lucas, Carrie Fisher has one of the best lines of the night when she says, "Everytime I look in the mirror, I have to send George Lucas a check." I thought that was really funny.

That's hilarious. I have a long & rambling theory about how William Shatner is the last Original regarding self-consciousness and 20th century entertainnment, but I'll save that for a late night in the culture room. --Jenny
