If I am lucky later this morning, I may be able to participate in a Google+ Hangout with the one and only William Shatner! Just in case I have chance to ask Bill a question or two, here are some research materials I found.
[Update: Well, Bill had to rush to another interview so no G+ Hangout yet. May be next time … Made me treasure even my my opportunity to meet him and Ricky in 2010.]
Last year at Banff 2010, I had a great time attending the insightful and fun “in conversation” between William Shatner and ‘The Big Bang Theory‘ creator and show runner Bill Prady. I just discovered the official Banff team had actually uploaded the full video of the session. I’ve finished watching the 7-part video of the chat again and absolutely loved it. Have fun & enjoy.
“When William Shatner gets a Lifetime Achievement Award from Canada’s Governor General, he shows appreciation as only Shatner can. In this short film, the most famous space cadet in showbiz takes helm of our heritage and treats us to a memorable rendition of Canada’s national anthem.
William Shatner to be honoured with Lifetime Achievement Award
Best known as Captain Kirk from the original Star Trek, William Shatner will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2010 Banff World Television Festival. With a career spanning more than 5 decades, Shatner has leveraged his fame to build enduring properties as a director, producer, author, recording artist, screenwriter and spokesperson.
A brand unto himself, Shatner’s next project is the recently announced Sh*t My Dad Says, based on the popular Twitter account that’s infamous for quotes like “A parent’s only as good as their dumbest kid. If one wins a Nobel Prize but the other gets robbed by a hooker, you failed.”
This reporter is excited and look forward to bring you some report when Captain Kirk attend Banff in June.
