Today we celebrate the 89th birthday of the Man himself: Captain Kirk, T.J. Hooker, Rescue 911 Guy, Denny Crane, Priceline Negotiator, and CAPTAIN JAMES TIBERIUS BY GOD KIRK.
:: ahem. ::
We’re talking about a guy who’s been in front of a camera for the better part of seven decades. Seriously, go look at his IMDB entry. I get tired just reading it, and it’s even money you can find him somewhere on your TV right now. He’s currently serving as the host for The UnXplained on the History Channel, and that’s just the latest of his many projects. He shows no signs of slowing down. If the stars align in just the right way, I may even be able to hand him a copy of Kirk Fu later this year, and hopefully he won’t go full Jimmy Wall Banger on me.
The one and only William Shatner: 89 years old, and still running circles around people half his age. I’ll have what he’s having.
Happy Birthday, sir. May you enjoy many more.
