William Shatner appeared together onstage with Adam West at the Salt Lake Comic Con Friday night, which was a nerd's dream. The two actors discussed their iconic roles in "Star Trek" and "Batman" respectively of course, but were also asked about whether either would consider a guest appearance on popular nerd-centric show "The Big Bang Theory", according to Zap2it on Sept 8. The two also told of a racy pilot they made together, too racy for 60s TV, before hitting the big time with their famous series.
When asked about appearing on Big Bang, Adam West said maybe, while William Shatner quipped that he'd make a call as soon as he got back to L.A. the next day.
Shatner and West, 82 and 84, appeared on stage for the first time at a Comic Con in Salt Lake City where they touched on a variety of subjects.
William Shatner and Adam West exchanged barbs at each others careers, and poked fun at Utah.
Adam West, who currently voices the role of Quahog Mayor Adam West on Fox's Family Guy, told the audience that he resists Hollywood's temptations of booze and pills, joking that's because he's from Utah.
The two actors told the audience how they did a show together before being cast in their breakout roles of Captain Kirk and Bruce Wayne, aka Batman.
They starred in a failed 1968 pilot called "Alexander the Great", and Shatner admits it probably didn't make it because it was filled with half-naked men and women. Way too racy for the time.
The pair also joked about their declining health as they grow old, even swapping hip replacement stories, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.
West joked about the bad hips adding, "But look at us, we’re still perfect", to resounding applause.
Previous "Star Trek" guests on Big Bang include Wil Wheaton's recurring role as himself, who happens to be character Dr. Sheldon Cooper's nemesis.
Actors Brent Spiner and LeVar Burton, aka Data and Geordy La Forge, have played themselves on the hit CBS sitcom as well. Of course those three all starred on the Next Generation series.
Even Leonard Nemoy from the original Shatner series did a guest appearance, by voicing the part of Spock as his action hero doll who speaks to Sheldon.
September 8th just happens to mark the 47th anniversary of the premiere of Star Trek on television, which debuted on this date in 1966.
The show was given the green light by none other than Lucille Ball of "I Love Lucy" fame, who headed production company Desilu studios at the time.
