Description

William Shatner is an award-winning actor, director, producer, writer, recording artist, philanthropist, and horseman.

In 1966, he originated the role of Captain James T. Kirk in the TV series Star Trek, which spawned a film franchise where he returned as Kirk in seven of the movies, one of which he directed. He played the title role in the hit series T.J. Hooker before hosting TV’s first reality-based series, Rescue 911.

He won Emmys and his first Golden Globe for his portrayal of Denny Crane on The Practice and Boston Legal, and received four more Emmy nominations as well as Golden Globe and SAG Award nods. His interview series, Shatner’s Raw Nerve, aired on Bio, and he recorded the critically-acclaimed album Has Been.

The Milwaukee Ballet performed “Common People,” which was set to songs from the record; the event is featured in the documentary Gonzo Ballet. Seeking Major Tom, featuring a number of heavy metal covers and songs by U2, Frank Sinatra, Queen and Pink Floyd, was released last year. Shatner has authored nearly 30 best-sellers. And no, there is nothing this man does not do.
