Today we’re celebrating the 90th 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 over a span of eight decades. Seriously, go look at his IMDB entry. I get tired just reading it, and that’s not even counting writing, producing, and directing credits. 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. That’s just one of the various things he’s got going on, and 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: 90 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.
