Tiberius, as in shark...

What about the birthdate of the actor who played Captain Christopher Pike in the original pilot?

I was there in '66, and I'm still following the sci fi spinoffs StarTrek created.

Christopher Pike is a fictional character in Star Trek. He appeared in the pilot episode The Cage as captain of the USS Enterprise, and was then played by Jeffrey Hunter. This pilot was rejected; another was made, and the character of Pike was dropped after Hunter decided that he did not want to continue with the franchise.

Captain Pike was played by actor Jeffrey Hunter.
Unfortunately he stopped having birthdays a long time ago when he fell down his stairs at home and broke his neck.

Yeah. I agree with all the above.
But you gotta catch "Boston Legal".
He's a hoot as Denny Crane suffering from mad cow disease.

Denny Crane indeed

by JeffDeWitt In reply to Denny Crane

I was hoping someone would mention "Boston Legal", it's a great show and Shatner is obviously having a ball doing it.

He does what he does best, plays a pompous arrogant guy who is throughly enjoying life... which I expect is what Shatner is like in real life these days.

The man is a ham, and isn't much of an actor, and not only does he know that he's taking advantage of it. He's also not afraid to laugh at himself.

Now if they could just get Nemoy on an episode or two of "Boston Legal".

Shatner's work

by easyrdr50 In reply to It's Captain Kirk's Birth ...

Why has not anyone mentioned his work on Twilight Zone. Nightmare at 24,000(?) Feet scared the XOXX out of me as a kid watching the first broadcasts. Nimoy and other Trekkers can be seen on different episodes.

What about the westerns?

by AlanGeek In reply to Shatner's work

I remember seeing him in some westerns on TV, though I don't remember if they were movies or series reruns.

Busy guy!

I don't know if this is all of them but I picked these westerns out from Mr. Shatners filmography from the IMDB.

Our Captian Kirk has been a busy guy!
