William Shatner is either a very funny guy OR he’s seriously lobbying for a part in J.J. Abrams‘ new "Star Trek" kick-start. Or hey: maybe both. Also: That Matt Damon rumor seems to be just that: a rumor.

From "In an interview with TV Guide, comeback king William Shatner says he has spoken to J.J Abrams about the new “Star Trek” film – but sounds diffident to whether or not he’ll be involved.

“I had a long talk with him, yeah. He’s going to morph Spock into Kirk — I’m starting that rumor”, he cheekily remarks.
