Re: Shatner calls Abrams "A Pig."
I think 99% of what Shatner says has to be taken as tongue in cheek. He tends to say things for effect and then let folks decide for themselves if he's sincere or not. I doubt he was, this time.
As far as a part for him in the new "Star Wars" movie goes, how about Jabba the Hut?
