William Shatner says he has 'no doubt' that there is extra-terrestrial life somewhere in the universe, but questions why aliens haven't made themselves known to humans yet. In an interview with the Montreal Gazette, Shatner said, "There is no doubt that there is life out there; the mathematics of it lead you to that absolute conclusion. In my mind, there is no doubt that the universe teems - teems! - with life in all its forms. But why they would come visit here and not let themselves be known to everybody is beyond my sense of logic".
The 79-year-old actor, famed for his role as Captain Kirk in 'Star Trek, is currently appearing in a new television series entitled, 'William Shatner's Weird or What?', in which he investigates strange goings-on such as U.F.O sightings, and although he believes in such things, he's still sceptical, stating, "Why would you fly the years or millenniums (it would take) to (get here)? Why wouldn't they just land and say, 'Here we are, we're tired, got any ice cream?".
As well as the new series, Shatner is also set to make a cameo appearance in the horror-comedy movie, 'Horrorween', set for release on October 20th 2010. The film is billed as 'America's First and Biggest Viral Movie', and is directed by Joe Estevez, the younger brother of actor Martin Sheen.
