Funny quote: Why Shatner's not in 'Star Trek'

"It's funny -- a lot of the people who were proclaiming that he must be in this movie were the same people saying it must adhere to canon. Well, his character died on screen. Maybe a smarter group of filmmakers could have figured out how to resolve that."

--Director J.J. Abrams as quoted in SciFi Scanner as to why you won't see William Shatner in Abrams' Star Trek. Hat tip ComingSoon. I'm a huge fan of Shatner (I even geekly snapped a photo of his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame), but this made me laugh out loud, heh.
