I hope that is indeed the case. Let's be honest, Shatner is no DeNero, or Orsen Wells.
Can you name 2 decnt films SHatner was in pre or post Trek? The only one I can think of is The Intruder from 1962, were he did a great job potraying a bigot.
Shatner is a camp actor, allways has been, allways shall be. Nothing wrong with it. But at that time, he didn't want to face it.
