Leonard Nimoy’s funeral is on Sunday and it will probably be a giant, sad Star Trek reunion, but one of the members of the U.S.S. Enterprise won’t be there. William Shatner tweeted today that he won’t be at his friend’s funeral tomorrow because he’s in Florida for a charity event and won’t be able to make it back to California in time. Well, the good news is that now George Takei and William Shatner won’t get into a tussle in the front row and knock over the casket. Here’s what Shatner tweeted:
I am currently in FL as I agreed to appear at the Red Cross Ball tonight. Leonard’s funeral is tomorrow. I can’t make it back in time. I feel really awful. Here I am doing charity work and one of my dearest friends is being buried. I feel really awful. Here I am doing charity work and one of my dearest friends is being buried.
Can’t Shatner call Priceline and ask them to get him a good price on a private jet?! Because he should really perform this (sans cigarette, of course) at Leonard Nimoy’s memorial:
