I am sure Shat would like to spring him and get 5 minutes in a room with the little prick. Trash like that should be in the ground.

Hmmm... he would have to supply their names to a judge or he would be committing perjury, no? After all, he has just implicated them in a conspiracy to commit a major crime. That'll get ya a lot a years up here. Give the scum some more prison time.

"Police will once again question DC sniper Lee Boyd Malvo, after the convicted serial killer said for the first time in a TV interview with actor William Shatner that two other men were initially part of the bloody plot that terrorized the Washington area and left 10 people dead in 2002.

D.C. sniper Lee Malvo talks to William Shatner about the shootings."There were two others, there were two other people who were supposed to be involved - but in the end, they ended up backing out," said Malvo, who was 17 when he was arrested for his role in the deadly attacks. He spoke to Shatner, most famous for his role as Capt. Kirk on the 1960's TV show "Star Trek," via telephone from a Virginia prison where he is serving a life sentence.

"What was supposed to happen was that there was supposed to be three to four snipers with silenced weapons, silenced rifles and in this way you could do a lot more damage along the entire Eastern Seaboard then what-- in the end there was only Muhammad and myself," Malvo, now 25, told Shatner. "

Maybe the punk thought Shat would negotiate for him...

They should use my song about Shatner, set to a tune by the Rolling Stones:

Shatner

Shoop, shadooby, Shatner (2x)
I'm from Star Trek T.O.S.
Which still survives at conferences
Look at me, I'm getting' fatter!
Shoop, shadooby, I'm Bill Shatner.
Shoop, shadooby, Shatner.

Fans are so alarming
My agent's never charming
Life's just a cocktail party at the "con"
Big Hilton
People dressed as Klingons
Giving lectures
About Gene Roddenberry
(Shatner)

Counselor Troi and Doctor Crusher - sexy sexy sexy sexy!
Look at me, I'm getting' fatter!
Shoop shadooby, I'm Bill Shatner!
Shoop, shadooby, Shatner

All this chitter-chatter, chitter-chatter, chitter-chatter 'bout
DS9 and The Enterprise -- I can't give it away at this con
These people need to get a life (shadooby)
Work and work to plug your book
Don't you want my autograph? Ograph ograph ograph ograph!
Does it matter? (shadooby--Shatner) Does it matter?
I'm Shatner.
(Shadooby) -- Shatner.

You got Ferengi in the west ballroom
Ferengi in the break-out session
What a mess this con is in
Uh-huh, this con's full of money grabbers
Go ahead, buy my book! You bunch of [expletive]s!
There's no intelligent life here,
Scotty, beam me up Up UP UP!

Look at me!
(shoop shadooby) I'm Bill Shatner! (etc. repeat and fade)

By Etan Vlessing

BANFF, Alberta (Hollywood Reporter) - The world knows William Shatner as the former "Star Trek" captain. Canadians know Shatner for his Montreal roots and early classic stage career in Stratford, Ontario.

So Canadian pay TV channel Movie Central will combine those two worlds in "The Captains," a documentary that captures Shatner's career arc to overnight success as Captain James T. Kirk. Shatner will direct the film, which will start production in July for broadcast in winter 2011.

Movie Central also acquired the Canadian broadcast rights to "William Shatner's Gonzo Ballet," which features a ballet by Margo Sappington set to music from Shatner.

Shatner returns to TV in the fall with the CBS sitcom "$#*! My Dad Says," a series based on a popular Twitter feed.

I have to disagree. In many circles, they are much more influential than Shatner.

Sure Shatner does TV ads and happens to have zepplin like body type, but does price line have a blimp named after him?

and of course there's the influence on Psychiatry of Lucy, The popularization of Beethoven by Schroeder, and the invention of the "Santa Claus of Halloween", the immortal Great Pumpkin. Not to mention a popular song and the only Christmas classic based upon real events of The Great War.   

Yeah, Shatner is influential, AND he has a huge round head, Good Grief! He even PLAYED a big giant head! But he is no Charlie Brown.

It would be sort of comparable if we had to keep hearing about Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus, and the rest of the Peanuts gang over and over and over again...

Fortunately, that isn't really happening, although that comic was magic the first time around too. It hit its best days in the 60s, I think, but it declined steadily from about the time Peppermint Patty and Marcie showed up.

It's only because the guy has been too much with us! He's been blessed with a certain longevity---and because of that he has gotten to be a parody of himself.--- That's not his fault. It is ours for morphing his mannerisms into the stuff of dreams that, horribly, happen night after night after night after...the same damn imagery.

The fault, dear people, is not in Bill Shatner. It is in our modern technology --- which allows us to rewind ad infinitum -- and play Bill over and over.

But the first time around---Star Trek was magic!!!

Just one guys opinion...
