Re: Putting the Shatner "ego issue" from TOS to rest

William Shatner has never worked as anything but an actor his entire life. According to his biography, anyway.
Yeah, but he did have to live in A VAN by THE RIVER.
Yep and in theater parking lots and actors driveways and other places with his little camper. It was a lean time after Star Trek for him, but he kept working, getting roles and finally got momentum back. He succeeded. And nobody can tell me he was LESS identified with his role than Doohan or Takei. For the same number of people who thought Doohan was Scott, Shatner was Kirk. Yet Shatner was able to get past the dark time and revitalize his career.

So, to me, this is "supporting cast sour grapes" and another way to stay in the spotlight.
