It's hard to believe, but William Shatner is celebrating his 82nd birthday today. Just about everywhere you look, there's William Shatner, best remembered as Captain James T. Kirk of "Star Trek", Denny Crane on "Boston Legal", and the starring role of the 80's police drama, "T.J. Hooker".

My wife and I had the pleasure of seeing Wlliam Shatner in person about 10 years ago at a Star Trek convention in Syracuse. Shatner did a stand-up routine for about 45 minutes, and then answered questions. He was great.

Check out this video of the unveiling of a Captain Kirk wax figure two years ago at Madame Taussauds Hollywood wax museum, complete with commentary by Bill Shatner.
