William Shatner will always be Captain James T. Kirk. I’m guessing he might have mixed emotions about that identity overtaking his own. (It‘s OK, he can afford all the therapy sessions he wants.) He’s also been T.J. Hooker, Denny Crane in Boston Legal (loved that show!), and the Priceline guy.
But perhaps my favorite of Bill’s roles is that of oh-so-emotive chanteuse, or perhaps it’s more accurate to say spoken word artiste. He recorded an album in the late 60s titled The Transformed Man which featured such gems as Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. It’s everything you never knew you wanted, and so much more.
So hit play, turn it up, and set your phasers to ‘stunning’ cuz that’s the only word for it. Happy Birthday, Bill!
