No 'Star Trek 2' For William Shatner, 'Hobbit' Gets 'Lost'
For those of you waiting with bated breath to see if William Shatner would make a cameo appearance in the upcoming "Star Trek 2," the former Capt. Kirk shot down those hopes over the weekend at a fan expo. Over and out.

Since then, his admirers have been left wondering when his next film would arrive, with Mullan reportedly experienced some frustration getting backing for the films he wanted to make.
