Shatner, Nimoy at DragonCon

Today was the first day of DragonCon in Atlanta, Georgia. The con is essentially a massive Sci-Fi and Fantasy convention celebrating comics, movies and TV shows. As part of that Star Trek's Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner had their panel with 2000 fans and discussed Star Trek and the current movie. The Shat still has not seen the movie and seems to remain bitter that he was written into it (but remember he doesn't do cameos). Video below of the panel. One amusing exchange according to
Have you seen any good movies lately?” Nimoy asked early on, eliciting laughs and applause from the crowd. The reference, of course, was to the rebooted version of “Star Trek” that came out earlier this year which included Nimoy — but not Shatner.
“You’re in the movie,” Shatner said dryly. “I’m not.”
Nimoy: “I wasn’t referring to any particular movie.”
Shatner: “I heard it’s a very good thing I’m not in the movie.” (boos)
Nimoy: “Send that to J.J. Abrams!” [the director] Then Shatner made numerous laments along the lines of “Why wasn’t I in the movie?”
Here is all seven parts of the panel in playlist from via
