Tell us how you really feel, William Shatner.

In an interview with Joel Amos of Movie Fanatic, the veteran actor - and the man who originated Captain James T. Kirk - is asked about JJ Abrams helming both the updated Star Trek franchise and Star Wars franchise.

How does Shatner feel about the director?

"He's probably the most talented director of that ilk we have," Shatner says, adding, however, that Abrams has "gone too far" and is actually "being a pig" these days.

Head over to Movie Fanatic now for more from Shatner and stay tuned for updates on this burgeonign cat fight.

The Tonight Show has had way too much fun chiding Sarah Palin this year, thanks to master thespian William Shatner's spoken-word, excerpted readings from the former governor's farewell speech and later Levi Johnston's Twitter account.

It was high time Sarah got in on the action herself, don't you think?

On last night's Tonight Show, Shatner again treated us to signature, dramatic prose (with bongo accompaniment) from Palin's new memoir, Going Rogue.

But this time, Sarah made a surprise appearance to turn the tables.

"I think Bill did a great job, but I think it's only appropriate that I read a few choice excerpts from Mr. Shatner's autobiography, Up Till Now," she said.

And she did. Watch the dueling, spoken-word comic genius below ...

Wednesday, The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien featured master thespian William Shatner reading Tweets from Levi Johnston, poetry-style, in a hilarious skit.

Well, it turns out the Twitter page they quoted from was a fake. Levi was not pleased at being portrayed as a racist pothead, and demanded Conan apologize.

He did so last night, saying: "I would like to personally apologize to Levi Johnston for misrepresenting him in any way. Levi is truly a great American. We wish him the best of luck as he trains for his upcoming naked photo shoot."

Conan then brought Shatner back out to make amends, and recite, in similar fashion, some actual verified quotes from Levi Johnston. Some of the gems:

  • "The first thing Sarah said to me at the hotel was 'you gotta cut your hair.' I told her I didn't want to. I had a mullet at the time."
  • "Guess what? I shot a big ass bear."
  • "If Sarah wanted food, then we'd get her something to eat. Like a Crunch-Wrapped Supreme from ... Taco Bell."
  • "I just get naked. That's what I do."

Classic. Here's William Shatner channeling his inner Levi last night ...

Most things sound better when master thespian William Shatner recites it over soothing, melodic percussion. Levi Johnston's Twitter page (real or fake) is no exception.

Levi is furious over a skit on last night's Tonight Show in which Levi came off looking like a moronic, racially insensitive pothead ... by virtue of his own Twitter page.

His alleged Twitter page, anyway. The attorney for the future Playgirl centerfold is claiming that the outrageous Tweets Conan O'Brien attributed to Levi are fake.

Conan introduced the skit referencing Shatner's reciting of Sarah Palin's inane farewell speech over the summer, and saying who better than to read Levi's Tweets?

"All real ... we did not make these up," Conan added.

Among the Tweets read poetry-style by Shatner: "Anybody know where I can get some good weed?" "Is it true that fat kids never get kidnapped?" "Whats the deal with the taxi drivers not speaking English, is there a law against it?"

And: "You know you're a celebrity when strangers want to see your penis. LM ... AO."

His lawyer, Rex Butler, is not LMAO. He  is demanding a retraction from NBC, as well as from Twitter, saying that "I think they have an obligation once something like this happens to make some kind of corrective measure."

NBC has yet to comment. Here's the hilarious video in question ...

If there's anything more comedic than Sarah Palin's farewell speech, delivered Sunday as the Alaska Governor resigned her office, we haven't heard it.

Although William Shatner reciting portions of Sarah Palin's farewell speech verbatim on The Tonight Show the following night has to come pretty close.

The master of the spoken-word and master thespian delivered, as only he can, a different take on the now-ex-governor's classic rambling, nonsensical goodbye.

Here's William Shatner channeling his inner Sarah Palin ...
