Captain Kirk Turns 82 Today


Happy birthday goes out to William Shatner, who turns 82 today!

The beloved Canadian actor rose to fame in 1966 when he assumed the role of Captain James T. Kirk, commander of the U.S.S. Enterprise, on "Star Trek." Even after the series was canceled, Shatner continued to reprise the role that made him famous in numerous "Star Trek" films.

The award-winning actor remains known for his movies, his television work ("Boston Legal," "$#*! My Dad Says"), his booming voice, and even his musical and literary career. Kids these days may know him best as Priceline man and for sort of co-hosting the Academy Awards with Seth MacFarlane last February.

Shatner was married four times and has three kids.

Happy 82nd, Captain!

There's a line by his character in Star Trek that seems very apropos given that he's turning 82:

"Bones! Buckle up!"

and he killed his 3rd wife, drowned her in the pool about a month after they married, and got away with it. lucky bastard.

Pure supposition, R3.

I believe he did it too.

Why on earth would he kill his wife?

The police said there was no evidence of foul play.

by Mr. Spockreply 603/22/2013

no way. he HAD to have been involved. he wasn't even questioned or fingered. I'm certain he married her, realized that he got himself into a mess, would have cost a fortune to divorce her, and decided to take matters into his own hands.

I liked his wife Toni Tennille.

Love, love will keep us together...

Happy Birthday, Shat! Love ya, dude! Live long and prosper.

His last TV series didn't last very long.
