Shatner Upset Over Star Trek Exclusion


by | October 27, 2007 | Comments

It appears the friendly rivalry between
Leonard Nimoy
is going to extend beyond
Priceline commercials.
While Nimoy is reprising his role as Spock in the
Star Trek

reboot, Shatner has not been invited back to play Captain Kirk and he’s feeling
the sting of being the odd man out.

”I couldn’t believe it. I’m not in the movie at all,"
Shatner reportedly said on Thursday. "I thought, what a decision to make, since
it obviously is a decision not to make use of the popularity I have to ensure
the movie has good box office. It didn’t seem to be a wise business decision.”

Shatner met with Star Trek director
J.J. Abrams
several times to discuss the film, but ultimately nothing came out of it.

"Leonard, God bless his heart, is in, but not me," Shatner
said, ”Having been in on the creation of it, I was hoping to be in on the

details remain closely guarded for the eleventh Star Trek movie. Casting news, on the other hand, spills out from Paramount frequently, including

Zachary Quinto
as young Spock, and
Chris Pine
as lord of the Enterprise manor, Captain Kirk.

Star Trek
is scheduled for a Christmas 2008 release.
