William Shatner Dropped by Priceline, But Earned $1 Billion

Posted: January 20th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
William Shatner Dropped by Priceline, But Earned $1 BillionSubmit Comment
William Shatner has been the pitchman for the internet travel website Priceline since 1997. But instead of taking cash to appear in the ads, the actor instead decided to be paid with the company's shares. Last year, when we first reported on this, Shatner's shares were worth a whopping $600 million. Today, those shares are worth closer to $1 billion.

Now comes word that after all these years, Priceline has decided to retire Shatner and move in a new direction. The company is planning to introduce a new spokesperson during the Super Bowl on February 5th.

"I'm in grief mode," said Shatner. "It was a great run, but if the management says this is the end, this is the end."

A billion buck in his pocket and he's sad about it? Yeah, right. Better quit while you're ahead, bill.

Still pretty funny/odd the man made more doing commercials that he did during his entire 50+ year acting career.

Bill is over 80. Not much he can do with that kind of cash but to give some to me and let me f*ck some supermodels in front of him while he slides on a wool sock.
