Shatner: Getting Pine To Relax

1 min read

When interviewing Chris Pine for The Captains documentary, William Shatner came up with a unique way of putting the shy Pine at ease.

The Captains, a documentary on the actors who have played Star Trek captains over the years on the Star Trek televised series, includes Patrick Stewart, Avery Brooks, Kate Mulgrew, Scott Bakula and Chris Pine.

“He’s shy,” said Shatner, referring to Pine, who played Kirk in 2009’s Star Trek XI. “So the way I started the interview, I put out a table and chairs outside the Paramount gates, and arm-wrestled with him. That was the beginning of my interview with him. I think it broke the ice, that’s for sure.”

The Captains will air on the EPIX channel on July 21.
