‘Star Trek’: Leonard Nimoy’s best William Shatner impression
We’ve just posted the third episode of “Hero Complex: The Show” and it’s a good one: Part 2 of our interview with Leonard Nimoy at his home has the “Star Trek” icon talking about the origins of the Vulcan salute, the satisfactions of stage work, the vagaries of typecasting and, to top it off, we even talked him into doing an impression of … William Shatner.
Yes, that’s right, Nimoy’s take on Kirk’s eulogy scene from “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.”
You can watch it all right here, but only if you’ve already seen Part 1.
If you’re just joining us, a quick explanation of who we are and what we do: I’ve been writing for the Los Angeles Times for 21 years on a variety of things (crime, local politics and the music industry among them) but I grew up loving comics and sci-fi and that inspired a blog that has now become a full-fledged website that in turn spawned an annual film festival, a print magazine as well as a free IMAX screening series.
The latest addition to our galactic empire is “Hero Complex: The Show,” which is posted every other Wednesday on the Nerdist Channel on YouTube. “Hero Complex: The Show” premiered with our visit to the offices of Ridley Scott.
