Loaded Weapon 1.
William Shatner's post-Star Trek career has been highlighted by numerous comedic performances in such projects as Free Enterprise, Miss Congeniality, and of course, Boston Legal. But Shatner's new career path started just a year after the release of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country with his portrayal of villain, General Mortars, in the National Lampoon spoof, Loaded Weapon 1.
In this episode of Stage Nine, John and Mike take a look at Shatner's performance in Loaded Weapon 1. We discuss whether or not the film is funny, how Shatner handles comedy, and look at cameos from other Star Trek actors. In news, we discuss the official announcement of Sonequa Martin-Green as First Officer Michael Burnham on Star Trek: Discovery, and the casting of Rainn Wilson as Harry Mudd.
