Too old, too fat, too late, no Shat.
I can see that, but actually he looks pretty good for his age (76).
Fat people always look healthier than skinny people when they get old. Fewer wrinkles. But pretty good for 76-year-old Shatner doesn't mean pretty good for Kirk. Old, bloated, red-faced Kirk just doesn't do it for me. It'd be, in turns, funny and sad watching Shatner waddle around trying to be Captain Kirk. I love Shatner and I loved his Kirk... grew up with him, he was my hero... but his time is definitely past.
