    Sure why not give the guy a small cameo? It would be a great easter egg! R2-D2 had a role in Star Trek 2009 so I see no reason why Captain Kirk can't make an appearence in Episode VII. :p Count me officially on board for this idea, Echo!

    I would love to see Trek actors in SW and SW actors in Trek!

    Thankfully, I don't think it will help happen. If Shatner couldn't get into STAR TREK I don't see him in SW.

    Gotta love the stupid media. Shatner has a wicked sense of humor as usual, and they start with the headlines "Shatner wants role in new Star Wars." [face_laugh]

    I like Shatner. He's a funny guy who's not above a little self-deprecating humor and all, but as far as a cameo appearance in the ST? While I woudn't be fussed about it either way, I just don't see the need for it.

    It would actually be great, although I doubt it will happen. He is a great actor.

    Oh God Yes. I would love this. Especially after his 'feud' with Carrie Fisher last year.
    And don't forget his golden moment.

    Only if he's playing Captain Kirk.

    Have him play a wisecracking admiral in the New Republic (or whatever it's going to be called) armed forces. Would be amusing if his second-in-command had pointy ears or used the word "logical" a lot.

    They managed to shoehorn ET, Willow and Indiana Jones into TPM, so why not?

    I have always liked Shatner. However, I think he is joking. On a seriousness note, we need to keep the franchises separate. I would only favor a cameo for him if he was not recognizable. This has to be a serious film effort and needless cameos and other stunts will only cheapen the franchise.

    I adore Shatner, but seeing him on the screen for so much as a frame would so take me out of the movie...

    Simon Pegg and George Tekai were already in TCW. So it's already happened.
