The 'Hair'
Armed with a gun and his fake coif, Shatner returned to TV as a pompous police sergeant in “T.J. Hooker,” a role that was pretty much perfect for him and his hairpiece.
The Cowboy
Throughout his entire career, Shatner’s proven he just does whatever the hell he wants. And we love him for it. He may be Canadian, but he’s an American treasure through and through.
The Kid
Shatner originated the role of a flight passenger who goes mad after seeing a gremlin on the wing of the plane in this classic “Twilight Zone” episode. It aired in 1963, when the actor was still an unknown, but you can sense the greatness to come.
The Spokesman
Shatner gained further cultural relevance as the spokesman for Priceline — a role that’s reportedly earned him millions.
The Mouth
Shatner’s most-recent TV role saw him starring as the father in “$#*! My Dad Says,” which was based on a popular Twitter feed. The show wasn’t as successful and was canceled after one season. It was not Shatner’s fault.

The Icon
For three years, Shatner led the Starship Enterprise as Captain Kirk in the cult TV show, and then multiple times for the big screen, including the 1989 film “Star Trek V: The Final Frontier,” which he also directed to mixed reviews.

William Shatner has been entertaining us for more than 50 years. Here’s some of the legend’s many faces.
