Astrophysicists Are Just Science Fiction Writers – William Shatner At SLCC

Also in the big auditorium at Salt Lake Comic Con this past weekend was William Shatner. The highlight reel for him ranger from Star Trek, TJ Hooker, Boston Legal and Twilight Zone to appearances on Psych, Third Rock From The Sun and Priceline commercials.

The actor starts off by telling a story involving the University of Utah, a new play and how he was heading to Broadway until he got a call about a pilot he had shot and how it got picked up for series… this was 1966. And a story about the guy who tried to sell him a fake Picasso in Salt Lake City.

He talks about the reaction to his infamous "Get a life!" sketch on Saturday Night Live and his dealings with astrophysicists and Stephen Hawking.
