Nimoy has dignity. Shatner has none.
I don't think that's a problem with this character. It's kind of a built-in trait -- the "no-dignity" thing

In all honesty, any story line about the return of Kirk Prime will suck considering the fact that his dead
Good thing the likelihood of a storyline featuring Shatner as a returning KirkPrime is just about nil, then, isn't it?

Exactly. Just like all those other times over the last four years when Shatner was asked essentially the same question.

It costs Shatner nothing to say "Sure, I'd love to!" (again) and he gets his name mentioned in connection with the movie (again). The rest of his answer (as quoted by TrekWeb) makes it plain that he's not taking the idea seriously at all, but sure, why not say that?

Reporters really need to just stop freaking asking him this question. It comes up every fricken time someone talks to him again and we all end up having the same discussion. I think I have everyone's opinion on the subject friggen memorized.

My other previous 20 responses to this topic: Shatner cannot be Kirk because blah, blah, blah but Shatner as different character would blah, blah, blah.

Only character that makes sense was/is Spock for obvious reasons. Shatner could do a voice over ONLY - giving him a new role wouldn't work either. Too distracting

William Shatner wants to return as Jim Kirk in Abramís Universe...
So? Marina Sirtis wants to return as Deanna Troi in future Star Trek productions. Michael Dorn wants to return as Worf in future Star Trek productions. I'm sure if you asked most of the actors who were in any form of Trek if they'd like to return, at least half of them would say yes. Doesn't mean they have a snowball's chance in hell of it actually happening.

And, seriously, what else are they supposed to say? "No, no, a thousand times no!"

Let's be realistic here. If some poor actor made the mistake of saying, "Nah. I'm done," the next headline would be: "So-and-So Turns Their Back on Star Trek!"

And we would have an endless thread about how they are sick of Star Trek and are letting down their fans . . . .

Talk about making things up and blowing things out of proportion and taking things out of context all at once.
Three for three on the over-the-top scale is hardly a record here, but I appreciate it!
Especially since it's kind of a big step from "I would love to" to "I feel entitled".

Come on! Shatner returning at Kirk Prime would be great.


Then Shatner and Pine can fight at the end, and it will end with "I... have had... enough of YOOOUUUU!!!" as Shatner kicks Pine into a lava pit.


It'd be awesome!!

Thank God that we have these smiley-faces to tell me if something was intended as sarcasm. Seriously, on the internet, one can never know!

Re: William Shatner wants to return as Jim Kirk in Abramís Universe...

One should start a poll: would you like to be in a Star Trek film?

And all who vote yes get insulted because they are full of themselves, have a bloated ego, have no dignity, and are way too fat to appear in a film.

It would, if anyone who participated and voted yes had anything close to Shatner's fame and history in Trek.

I think this was a jab at everyone calling him that, wasn't it? I may have misunderstood.
