William Shatner is such a larger than life figure, that it’s hard to imagine him as a serious actor on Broadway. But before he became Captain Kirk, that’s exactly what he was. He made his Broadway debut in 1956 as part of a play called Tamburlaine The Great and now, 56 years later, he’s going back.

Shatner has announced that he’s heading to Broadway where he’ll star in a one-man show called Shatner’s World: We Just Live In It. No word yet on just exactly what he’ll be doing on stage, but it’s probably safe to assume there will be at least a little bit of this:

Star Trek 3 Might Add Bryan Cranston As A Chilling Villain

fb share tweet share

Bryan CranstonStar Trek 3 has had more than its share of problems already and they haven’t even put a single image on film (or, you know, whatever they use these days). Writer/director Roberto Orci stepped off after reports that he clashed with the Paramount Pictures execs over the direction of the franchise, but since then they’ve gradually pieced things together and it’s going to be interesting to say the least. Fast & Furious helmer Justin Lin has taken over the reins, and series star Simon Pegg, who plays the rebooted version of Scotty, will co-write the script. Now it sounds like they might add one of the most badass living actors in a villain role, as well as a bunch of other potentially interesting characters.

According to Film Divider, the production is looking to cast a new antagonist who is supposed to be “Bryan Cranston-like.” While that’s intriguing, it’s not the potentially awesome part. The cool piece of this news is that not only do they want a Cranston-like figure, they want actual Bryan Cranston to play the part. There have even reportedly been talks between the two sides, and though there is no word on his reaction, that’s a prospect worth getting excited about.
