Although it was the early days of my journalism career, I remember two thoughts at the time: If Shatner thought he could get rid of the shackles of “Star Trek”, that was a joke, and he is unlikely to be related to himself again. Large-scale blow.
It turns out that I was right or wrong. Shatner will always be remembered for the iconic role of Captain Kirk. But he succeeded in making the third act of his career, which is really impressive, partly because of his tendency to sway, bluff and laugh at himself.
Facts have proved that the director does not represent the road to Shatner’s future. He has the opportunity to direct the fifth “Star Trek” movie “The Last Frontier”, which is generally regarded as one of the low points of the series.
However, the actor has since turned to many shrewdly chosen vehicles, making it unlikely that he will switch from the leading actor-the mantle he still assumed in the 1980s series “TJ Hooker”-to the shrewd second banana. “Miss” and other movies served as a supporting role Congeniality” or guest star, for example, in “The Third Rock from the Sun.” He played the big giant head. He also hosted the popular reality show “Rescue 911” to keep himself in the public eye middle.
Later, Shatner played Denny Crane’s Emmy award-winning part in “Practice” as Denny Crane, the conceited and eccentric lawyer who loves good cigars , And claimed that he has never lost the lawsuit.
Shatner also joined the “Star Trek” joke, as he did on the “SNL” sketch. These included the Comedy Central Barbecue in 2006, where he kindly endured repeated attacks on his over-performance and so on.
This laid the foundation for his later life, starring in the short but unforgettable sitcom “$#*! My dad said” and continued to work steadily. Recently, he talked with Jean Smart in the independent comedy “Senior Moments” in love. “
A good attempt, but we all know the legendary flag that Shatner carries with him. However, it turns out that what easily becomes his final frontier is only the beginning of a journey—either boldly or otherwise—in a direction that skeptics cannot foresee.
