Shatner Responds to Abrams’ Star Trek Comments

William Shatner has responded to Star Trek director J.J. Abrams’ comments from last week about why the actor is not reprising the role of Captain James T. Kirk in next year’s film.


It seems to us that someone in the film’s production told Abrams that Shatner didn’t want to do a cameo and wanted the movie to focus on him. As you can see from the video below, Shatner says he was never contacted by someone about taking part in the movie, but agrees that he wouldn’t be up for just a cameo and suggests they resurrect him in the follow-up.
