Old and New Kirk Meet

Although William Shatner has met Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine, he knows very little about Star Trek XI.

As reported by TrekMovie.com, Shatner met Quinto and Pine at the sixth Annual Alzheimer’s Benefit, “A Night in Sardis,” in Beverly Hills on March 5th.

"I met the young man [Quinto] and the young man who is playing Captain Kirk," said Shatner. "He was very nice. I know nothing about the movie. I suspect you probably know more about the movie than I do because Andrew [Clement] is doing makeup on it. I know nothing. I feel badly about that, but there is nothing I can do." Andrew Clement is the husband of Lisabeth Shatner, daughter of William Shatner.

In other Shatner news, an artist has created a life-sized bust of William Shatner out of Lego toy building blocks. A radio show contest offered it as a prize to any listener who could get Shatner to call in to their show. Shatner, however, isn't quite ready to appear on the radio show quite yet.

"This was made of Legos," said Shatner, referring to the bust. "Some gentleman, I don't have his name [made it.]". Shatner was offered the bust but declined to accept the expensive offering. "They offered it to me," he said, "I didn't want it. Lego of me is a little sick. This radio show wants me to call in and I don't want to call in right now. I want to do it when that book [Up Til Now: The Autobiography] is for sale. I call them in and around that date if it's being released in England at the same time."

Meanwhile, Shatner is keeping busy doing other things. He recently filmed a commercial for World Of Warcraft and a video at Shatnervision shows him practicing his line.
