William Shatner's spent more than half a century as an entertainer and geek pop culture icon playing such roles as Captain Kirk, T. J. Hooker and most recently Denny Crane. But it's arguable that his biggest role to date has been as William Shatner. In his confessional show Shatner's World: We Just Live in It. He delights audiences with antidotes, songs, jokes and stories. (The show is unfortunately light on musical performances, which is a shame because Shatner's 2004 album Has Been, produced by Ben Folds, was considered by many to be a true gem.) Shatner walks fans through his highs and lows of his life and career, including a time when he was broke, divorced and living in his truck. Now 81, the affable, laughable, and impossibly likable, Shatner is approaching the end of an incredible life. He treats his going-to-be-sooner-than-later death with the same curiosity Captain Kirk had for the universe. According to Shatner, ''Death is the final frontier.''
