At 83, ‘Star Trek’ legend William Shatner has lived long and prospered – and he’s still going strong.
On the heels of writing his latest album, “Ponder the Mystery,” with ‘Yes’ guitarist Billy Sherwood, the original Captain Kirk is starring in DIY Network’s new home renovation show, ‘The Shatner Project.’
He’s also got a recurring role on Syfy’s show, ‘Shatner’s World,’ throughout January. “That’s my life. I keep going!” William shares with ‘Closer.’ ‘That’s my talent!”

It’ll be on my website and sold on iTunes.
