George Takei Roasts William Shatner

  • Posted by: Steve Biodrowski

Most of you Trekkies out there have probably already seen this, but for those of you who haven't, here it is...

This came to our attention because Takei talks about it in Part 3 of an interview that posted today at Cinefantastique Online:

  • GEORGE TAKEI:  [...]  In the past we had conversations about his hobby, about him trying to get all the lines and close-ups, but I was finally able to take my shots at him at this thing and really let it out.  Over all the years, he really could just not pronounce my name right; everyone else could, but not him.  But after the roast, he is getting the name correct now [crowd laughter].  I could not get it into his noggin then, but I got it onto his noggin now [louder laughter]….It is George Takei… [crowd in hysterics] …just think of it as “toupee.”

You can read the interview here:

  1. Talking About Trek
