Last night, William Shatner appeared on The Colbert Report to promote his one-man show, Shatner’s World: We Just Live In It.
His appearance lasted six minutes, and in that time, Shatner described his show, spoke about Star Trek and arm-wrestled Stephen Colbert.
Shatner was his usual flip self at times. When Colbert told him, “I just have to say, man to man, how goddamned beautiful you were. Did you know you were beautiful?,” Shatner replied, “I did. Why do you use the past tense?”
Not content with verbal victories, Shatner won the arm-wrestling contest, beating Colbert in just one second.
