William Shatner was seen sitting in a cardboard box on the street, so you have to wonder if the actor has hit hard times? Nope, he was making a statement on Twitter, I just can’t figure out what the trope is all about.
What I can tell you is that I am anxiously awaiting to see his new NBC show Better Late Than Never starting on August 23rd. The Shat along with Henry Winkler, Jeff Dye, George Foreman and Terry Bradshaw travel all over Asia to learn all about The Orient through their foods, historical sites, people and whatever else the continent throws at them.
On a different note, I have had Living in a Box’s Living in a Box stuck in my head since I saw this photo. Suffer along with me.
Last year when NBC announced that they were sending Henry Winkler, William Shatner, George Foreman, Terry Bradshaw and Jeff Dye to Asia for a docusries called Better Late Than Never, I have been anxiously waiting for this show to debut. Just like the title, Better Late Than Never, almost a year after they filmed their trip, it finally has a premiere date. It will debut on August 23rd and it looks like it will be the best comedy to grace our televisions in a real long time. Yet, only one comedian and two actors are part of it and it’s unscripted.
Not only should you be prepared to laugh until your cry, you will also learn a lot about The Orient as they try not cause an International incident. Which looks like they might’ve according to that trailer.
Last week, NBC announced their new reality show Better Late Than Never; and even though show doesn’t start filming for two months, the contestants are already conspiring against each other.
The comedic adventure reality show is sending William Shatner, Henry Winkler, George Foreman, Terry Bradshaw and Jeff Dye to the Orient and NBC is making them fend for themselves. Now that the news is out, the contestants are talking to each other on Twitter about it.
The Shat Tweeted to the comedian, “Is that an attempt to form an alliance so we don’t vote you off the continent? What are the rules? Are there any? 😘”
To which the contestant of I Can Do That told him, “@WilliamShatner the only rules I live by is ‘always have fun’, never trust ‘Gorn’, and ‘voodoo is real'” along with a photo of Dye holding a Captain Kirk doll and a screwdriver. The other three should be afraid because there’s a Fonz doll, a collectable figure of the football legend and toy versions of the George Foreman grill, so Dye can use his voodoo magic on those items too.
Good thing Shatner asked the others to form an alliance with him against Dye, so maybe they will make it back to America unharmed.
That is if there are any rules?
If this is what Better Late Than Never is going to be like, then the earlier this show can debut the better!
NBC announced their newest reality show today and it has the potential to be the best thing ever. Better Late Than Never is going to send Henry Winkler, William Shatner, George Foreman, Terry Bradshaw and Jeff Dye to Asia and make them survive on their own without any help from everyone. Basically The Fonz can fish, The Shat can use Priceline, the Boxer can bring his grill, the football colorist can be that funny looking American they want to take pictures with for money and I am sure they’re things that Jeff Dye learned on I Can Do That that will come in useful somehow.
Still confused by the show? Here’s the description from the press release:
Henry Winkler, William Shatner, Terry Bradshaw, George Foreman and Jeff Dye will embark on the ultimate international excursion with no assistants, no limousines and no lattes, in search of an intimate, life-changing experience. The one-hour series will begin production in August, traveling to Tokyo, Kyoto, Seoul, Hong Kong, Bangkok and Chang Mai before heading home.
The five will navigate their way through each city â€” communicating with the local population, immersing themselves in local traditions and enjoying exotic food â€” all the while dealing with the unexpected twists and turns that any trip presents. As they check off items on their own personal â€œbucket list,â€ the five will rely on each other for support and encouragement and, in the process, demonstrate that friendship is the ultimate gift.
Doesn’t that sound like it will be happy day whenever it airs? Hopefully, it won’t jump the shark like one of Winkler’s other shows!
We have heard William Shatner sing The Beatles, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, and today on Queen Latifah‘s show he sang her 1990 hit Ladies First. Let’s just say his version of it is The Shat!
Who would’ve thought he could take her rap song and make it sound like it was always meant to be performed at the lounge. I mean, there are few discrepancies with him singing the lyrics word for word, but that’s just makes it so much better! To hear him sing about birthing babies and being the woman standing in front of us, just makes it that much better. Don’t take my word for it, watch Queen’s reaction it all. She is loving every second, just as you will.
BTW if you are like me and don’t remember or know the song, then you can listen to it below to hear how very different it sounds.
For years, star Carrie Fisher and star William Shatner have been having their wars and now it looks like that long trek is over.
Captain Kirk Tweeted the above photo and said “The mighty @CarrieFFisher heroine to many But when I went to lunch with her she tried to choke me” Then a short time afterwards Princess Leia Tweeted the below picture and said, “We made up after I killed him.”
So if Princess Leia and Captain Kirk can be friends and J.J. Abrams can direct Star Trek and Star Wars, then why can’t we get a Star Wars Trek crossover movie? They both take place in space, one in a galaxy far far away and the other one to boldy go where no man has gone before. So why can’t the Enterprise boldy go to that far far away galaxy? C’mon Disney and Paramount, let’s make this happen. It will be bigger than Batman vs Superman and X-Men vs The Fantastic Four. Who’s with me???
But seriously, who else is happy that these two finally worked things out and that we got this sweet picture out of it!
If you are like me then your favorite part of Boston Legal were the balcony chats between William Shatner and James Spader. Well yesterday The Shat did a fireside chat like the ones he used to do with Craig Ferguson on The Late Late Show and it just wasn’t the same. Although it was a nice fix for people like me who are still missing the David E Kelly legal drama.
William Shatner recorded a special holiday message and I am not sure if he meant what he said or basically what the hell he was saying. Captain Kirk spoke to the camera with his fake goatee and said, “I want you to let the hair grow as part of the celebration.” Then he added, “I want you to let the hair grow, where ever hair grows. Let it grow. And worship it. And cultivate it. Admire it.” Is that his way of him saying he wants men to stop manscaping and woman to stop waxing? And don’t get me started on the second part of his massage because it is way too easy for me to go where no man, wait I am not finishing that sentence…
Now having said all of that, Shatner can say whatever he wants because he is The Shat. We just don’t necessarily have to understand everything he says and I think with this one we will just let it slide.
Months after Priceline killed off William Shatner as their negotiator, he has risen from the dead like Jesus Christ and Stefano DiMera and is back doing commercials for them. I knew he would not stay dead for long, kind of like his real life when the cameras are not rolling.
