He's a spoken-word artist, pals with Henry Rollins and enemies with Twitter star George Takei. He also played one of the most iconic roles in television history. I'm talking about James Tiberius Kirk. No, not your pseudo "OMG, I'm totally a giant nerd because I loooved Star Trek, guys!" crush, Chris Pine. We're talking the real, original, Khan-defeating, USS Enterprise NCC-1701-leading wunderkind William Shatner portrayed in the '60s. Post "Star Trek," Shatner continued his small-screen success as the titular character in "T.J. Hooker," the Priceline guy and as Denny Crane in his award-winning role on "Boston Legal." But neither of those compare to his 1978 Science Fiction Film Awards "Rocket Man" performance. (Other than "Star Trek," of course.) In February 2012, Shatner created his one-man show, Shatner's World: We Just Live In It, which he performed on Broadway. Now he's taking it on the road, going city to city with a mix of humor, storytelling and musicality only William Shatner can pull off.
