When it comes to talking about his new album, William Shatner is like a kid on Christmas morning.
“I’m scared, I’m frightened, by how good I think the album is,” says the 87-year-old TV icon.
Shatner made the comments last August when he was in Toronto guest starring on the Jason Priestley and Cindy Sampson detective drama Private Eyes. He reprises a role he previously played on the Global series as a rival private investigator. The episode will air next year.
The new Christmas CD, Shatner Claus, features mainly holiday standards such as “Jingle Bells,” “Little Drummer Boy” and “White Christmas.” Earlier this year, he released a country album — Why Not Me? — a collaboration with Alabama’s Jeff Cook.
