William Shatner, William Shatner, Captain Kirk, the extraordinary cultural icon. Shatner rules. Like all great American actors – who is not American. We’re not even sure that is human. In human years is 80 (with unstoppable energy of a Vulcan mind eight years of age), but could be just a young Akritirians, Bejorin, Betazoid-to name only a handful of humanoids that have been infected, er, appeared Star Trek (and those are just some of the ‘A’ and ‘B’ the names of humanoid aliens are on Wikipedia. shudder.)
In fact, we have been under the influence of Star Trek, as it was handed on, I mean “air” on NBC 45 years ago last month. Shatner so thoroughly integrated into his role on this planet, the role of explorer of new worlds (see?), Only now beginning to realize that you are starting with us, he is starting to mess with our minds. Just this month, continue to hypnotize his loyalty with a DVD Trekkie (Captain) a book (Rules Shatner: The key to understanding the Shatnerverse and the world in general) and CD (Seeking Major Tom). For this reason we are confident that William Shatner has always been and always will be the master of his universe. And ours.
1. The latest book or movie that made you mourn?
Rise of the Planet of the Apes – it was so bad I was crying.
2. The fictional character most like you?
The Rise of the monkey in Planet of the Apes because he had ambitions, some of which came true and some of them not, all of which were an exercise in futility anyway.
3. The greatest album, ever?
The search for Major Tom is one of the important albums of our generation.
4. Star Trek or Star Wars?
DUH! Star Wars, of course.
5. Your ideal brain food?
Jazz – inspired by their creativity.
6. They are proud of this achievement, but why?
I can chew gun and walk at the same time, I’m told to do two things at once is impossible. The brain is cut … not mine.
7. You want to be remembered for …?
Chewing gum and walk at the same time.
8. Of those who have come before, mostly for inspiration?
Stunt actor Steve-O, because it can hurt and recover in an instant. I can take a day or two.
9. The creative masterpiece you wish bore your signature?
If I could have just re-edited rise of Planet of the Apes … but did not ask.
10. Your hidden talents …?
The skill of the toes. I can pick up a pen and write a short story, but only with my little finger.
11. The best advice I actually followed?
“Go West Young Man,” said American author Horace Greeley. Hollywood was at the end of the map.
12. The best thing I bought, stolen or borrowed?
I stole a bag of candy when I was five. The store clerk called me, I told my father and I never stole anything again. Except for a scene or two.
13. You feel best in Armani or Levis or …?
Shorts. I have good legs and washboard abs.
14. Your dinner guest at the Ritz would be?
Fred Astaire. Dance with me, came the order and to listen to me sing.
15. Time travel: where, when and why?
I want to go back in time to the invention of fire. That thought is true? Who thought of using it? He must have been the brain more creative than ever. I’m assuming it’s a “he” because many “shes” are playing with fire.
16. Stress Management: murderer for hire, spa vacation or Prozac?
It might take some Prozac in a holiday resort and have the phone number of the murderer for hire.
17. Essential to life: coffee, vodka, cigarettes, chocolate, or …?
It should be the espresso, Belvedere vodka and chocolate cigarettes

I have a small patch of sky here in Los Angeles.
19. What do you mean that the leader of your country?
Get your rear end of the toilet and run this country like our lives depend on it.
20. Last but certainly not least, what are you working on now?
I have a new book coming out called Rules Shatner on 4 October, a new album called Seeking Tom important releases on October 11 and my one-man tour of Canada, how time flies: An Evening with William Shatner, is released in Vancouver on October 19.
