Video: William Shatner Reacts to "Star Trek" Trailer

Posted: May 1st, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Video: William Shatner Reacts to "Star Trek" TrailerSubmit Comment
By now, everyone already knows that William Shatner is upset that he wasn't cast in the new "Star Trek" film, even though JJ Abrams offered him a cameo spot, which Shatner rejected.

And even though the film is scheduled to hit theaters in six days, it is only now that Shatner has decided to watch the trailer. Billy Bush from "Access Hollywood" screened it for him and recorded his reaction.

Shatner uses the opportunity to make a few comments about his co-star George Takei and to plug his new Star Trek novel called "Collision." Check out the video below.

Y'know... I'm a Shatner Fan (still am after what I'm about to say). But I wish (always) that he was more gracious towards anything new about Star Trek, or other (related) projects other than his own. He always seems to come off too self-serving and promoting (with IS the Biz... I know that). But just imagine what a different feeling that video would have left us with were he just bouncing up and down on his chair, saying (with enthusiasm): 'That's GREAT! That's FANTASTIC! What a great look... job! I can't wait to go see it myself!' And y'know... Karma may give him a nod. But his ONLY comments about the trailers was (maybe) seeing George in it?! ... sigh... Bill are you REALLY that worried about us forgetting your name if you stop promoting yourself for ONE FRICKIN DAY?!?! RELAX buddy... you're the ORIGINAL Captain James T. Kirk. Rejoice in that. Everyone and everything thing has their time in the sun.

It was nice to see him smile whenever they showed his interactions between Kirk and Spock...towards the end he seemed a bit sad. I think it was mixture of him trying to figure out what was going on and maybe even second guessing his decision to not take a cameo...Poor Billy.

i enjoy shatner too in Boston Legal, he was hilariously deadpan and outrageous and he really made the show good. he's a fine actor and he is and always will be the 1st Captain Kirk. i just don't get what he's got against this reboot. if he's so angry he wasn't cast he should've taken the cameo J.J. Abrams offered him. and we wanted to hear his ACTUAL reaction to this trailer, i didn't wait for this stupid video to load for him to plug his new book. if i wanted to listen to shatner and watch him find a george takei cameo. c'mon shatner, tell us how you really feel.

In his book Star Trek Memories... we wasn't well liked by the cast back in the 60's. He'd have Uhura's lines cut, and really wanted the spotlight. I know most Actor's come from a place of insecurity. But man... once you've 'made it' like Shatner... be a little (NO... a LOT) more gracious. If he's not in this new Star Trek film... I'm glad. Not because of my comments here or the one above, but these cameos are getting tiring. I'm not liking to use this comparison (but it's a good example of how a bad one could go), but remember (ugh) Starsky & Hutch... with the original 2 guys appearing with Wilson and Stiller at the end to sell them their car. How bad did that suck (let alone the whole movie in that case). But this is a NEW Star Trek. Give the NEW Actor's some respect and give them their own space. This 'passing of the torch' crap it getting a lot too long in the tooth. And I STILL say all of this with the most respect for Shatner and to the rest of the originals!

You know what Ranger that's the first time you haven't been a balls out stooge. Great views in regards to this- shows us what your made of besides bullsh*t and mama jokes. Have a good one-Cheers.

Thx. Bro. I appreciate all comments (good and 'bad'), but were people to check, I never drew 'first blood' in ANY of those prev. engagements. Genuinely though... I appreciate your comments. As for this movie, it is going to make $'s like NO ONE has seen before. I'm an old die hard fan... and am really looking forward to it (but not going to camp out for 1st, night tickets...lol).

Yes, Ranger, it's nice to see that you can produce something other than d*ck, vagina, mama, urine, feces, trailer park, incest, working class, and gangbang jokes. And I mean that. I'm almost wondering if this is even the same person. It seems like you have a lot of things to say and offer, but I'm thinking maybe you thought that utter crudity was the only way to be funny here. Maybe you were just trying too hard to amuse others, and then you got defensive when it didn't go over like you had hoped. Not like you need my approval, or anything, but you seem alright, when your mind isn't in the gutter. Hope you stick around.

Gunslinger... thx. 4 the input. I've never really had a prob. with you, but as I said earlier, I never drew first blood in our engagements. And different people have fun in different ways. Thx. for the kind(er) comments though. TO: bacci40 - they do those cameos to honor a past actor, but as I said above, y'know, give these new actors, this NEW Star Trek a clean slate. I AM a Shatner fan, but he's had his time (more than his time) in Star Trek. He was offered and declined... he's done. Under a pile of rocks since Generations (which I figured would have ended better had they put him in a space suit after his fight with Dr. Saurin, placed him in front of the Nexus Ribbon to live eternity with the life he gave up for Star Fleet (instead of ending it with a: 'It was fun.' Gaaassppp'! Even back then HE was done with Star Trek - he said so). TO: Space_Ghost11 - you're right... he did. It looks like that trailer took the wind right out of his sails and he KNEW he missed out on a great thing, and right then (in his eyes) you could see that he knew that. Thus more explains his reason for junping right into his typical self-promotion.
