Shatner Down to Earth on New Talk Show

And although "Boston Legal" -- for which Shatner has won two Emmys -- wrapped up its four-season run last month, he's not about to slow down. "I'm having so much fun on 'Raw Nerve," he said. "Can't you just see the fun? But I have a lot on my plate."

Besides a second season of "Raw Nerve" -- and his 11th year as the Priceline spokesman -- he'll be gearing for a feature film he wrote called "The Shiva Club," which, he said, "is about the relationship between laughter and grief. I will be producing and directing this one. But I will try to avoid starring in it."

He's also set to release a documentary called "Gonzo Ballet," about the making of a ballet based on six songs Shatner wrote for an album with Ben Folds.

Shatner released a memoir, "Up Till Now," last year and is working on turning his "TekWar" novel series into a set of graphic novels.

Still, he's not too busy, he noted, should the director of a certain remake want to talk.

"Good for them, bringing it to a new generation," he said of the upcoming "Star Trek" remake, directed by "Lost" creator J.J. Abrams. "I don't think I will be involved. But I would love to play the lead in it. And I talk to J.J. all the time, but it's over the net, so you talk to him for me, OK? Tell him to call. Tell him Shatner says, 'J.J., call me.'"
