William Shatner Calls J.J. Abrams "a Pig" for Hogging Both Star Trek a

OOOO. K.

"We already know William Shatner thinks Star Trek is better than Star Wars, but how does he feel about J.J. Abrams going from directing two Trek flicks to helming the next adventure in a galaxy far, far away?
"He's being a pig," the original Captain Kirk told Movie Fanatic. "He's collecting the two franchises and holding them close to his vest. He's probably the most talented director of that ilk that we have, but he's gone too far this time."
J.J. Abrams on his "wildly surreal" Star Wars 7 ride
While that may sound a bit harsh, we're guessing his tongue was planted firmly in his cheek when he said it. At least, we hope so!
Shatner added, "I think of him as a buddy of mine. I've taken him out for sushi. I think it's time for J.J. and I to have another sushi and let me put him straight about two of the largest franchises—and not employing me in either one of them is just foolhardy."
Meanwhile, Star Trek: Into Darkness, sans Shatner, opens in theaters on May 17."

Still pissed that Nimoy got a part in JJ's Trek film and he was passed over. His version of Kirk has been dead since '94, move on Bill.

Oh, for Christ's sake - read the thing in context.

Shatner has a sense of humor. It wouldn't hurt a lot of trekkies to emulate their Captain.

I don't think he was joking...

I guess he can kiss his cameo in STXIII goodbye!

Abrams should have Shatner play a Jedi in Episode VII.

Oh relax. I'm sure this is all perfectly kosher...

It would only have been wrong, if Mel Gibson or Charlie Sheen had said it!

You're doing yourself a disservice is you think Shatner is being remotely serious here.

The Shatner sense of humor is annoying at best.

I know they have met once or twice, but I'd seriously love to know if Shatner has ever taken Chris Pine out for Sushi.
