Justin Halperin (blogger of Shit My Dad Says and producer of S**t My Dad Says) describes writing for William Shatner.
His enthusiasm is infectious. It’s a joy to watch him put his spin on a line we’ve written. It’s as if the line enters Shatner, and Shatner’s brain and the line flirt for a few moments before his brain grabs the line and begins to make sweet love to it.
Shortly after, the line has been impregnated. It has a short gestation period until he speaks the line aloud and the live studio audience witnesses the miracle that is the child of the written line and Shatner’s brain, covered in amniotic fluid and waiting to be loved … and applauded.
Bill prepares to make sweet love to these lucky words.
Thanks for the heads-up, Bria.
