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."

It feels like friends are few and far between. If you're not getting the help you need, ask why. It may be because you have been so preoccupied with work. Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
