Shatner wants Star Wars film role

William Shatner thinks he should be in the new Star Wars film

William Shatner is wooing director JJ Abrams to try and get a role in his new Star Wars film.

The actor - famous for playing Captain James T Kirk in the Star Trek TV series and original films - was upset that JJ did not give him a role in his big screen Star Trek reboot, the latest of which, Star Trek Into Darkness, is out this summer.

But William is hoping to get on board for Star Wars Episode VII.

He joked to MovieFanatic.com: "JJ is being a pig. He's collecting the two franchises and holding them close to his vest. He's probably the most talented director of that ilk but he's gone too far this time."

William added: "I think of JJ as a buddy of mine. I've taken him out for sushi. It's time for us to have another sushi and me to put him straight about two of the largest franchises and how not employing me in either one of them is foolhardy."

Virgo:

Be assertive about your needs. It's time to stop deferring to the pushier people in your crowd. You have an opportunity to land a good job, embark on a romance or showcase your talent. Don't hesitate to elbow your way past a rival. The person you want to impress will admire your strong stance. Turn a deaf ear to some disturbing gossip. The troublemaker who is spreading this story is just a jealous rival. Beware of tarnishing an innocent person's reputation.More
