William Shatner's comments regarding his feelings about not being offered a role in 'Star Trek XI' drew little sympathy from Leonard Nimoy in an interview earlier in the week.

Nimoy spoke with the New York Times, after an appearance at the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts in Manhattan, where he was promoting his new book of photographs titled The Full Body Project.

"I know he’s upset," said Nimoy in reference to his former co-star,"but his character died three movies ago, so it would have been very difficult to get him into this one.”

In a telephone call to the Howard Stern Radio Show, Shatner spoke of his sadness at not being in the film as reported here. He felt that "...it's not a wise business decision, to not include both characters." Shatner had found out that he would not be in the film after calling Nimoy.
