Rocket Man. Mr. Tambourine Man. Even My Way.
William Shatner has performed and, according to some, butchered many a perfectly good song. His “stylings,” as he calls them, are part over-the-top dramatic readings, part over-acted poppycock. And yet we love him for it.
Now, Shatner’s taken on kid lit.
At the recent Denver Comic Con, on June 2, William Shatner arrived unexpectedly at the children’s story time stage (aka the “Comic Book Classroom Corral”) and delivered a special styling of the Maurice Sendak picture book Where the Wild Things Are.
And, yes, Shatner can get away with it. With anything, it seems, at this point in his over-dramatic career.
Say no more. Just watch below.
[Note: in this version posted over at MTV Geek, you can see Shatner’s weird and sort of scary intro which may or may not have made children freak out.]
