William Shatner’s Getting Involved In Star Wars Arguments Now, And Joking About Mark Hamill To Boot
The conversation started following rumors that a new Star Trek spinoff series might include a version of James T. Kirk that was bisexual. William Shatner says he’s fine with such a decision if it’s made, but as one might expect, the conversation didn’t end there. Shatner explained that fans could even choose to read his version of the character that way, and he’d be ok with it. This led one fan to remark that Mark Hamill had said similar things about Luke Skywalker. Somebody responded that since Jedi are basically monks, relationships were never important to Luke Skywalker. And then William Shatner had to go and burst that bubble.
