Pearl River, N.Y. & Atlanta, Ga. - Star Trek's William Shatner will kick off the 2007 ACORD LOMA Insurance Systems Forum at the Walt Disney World Dolphin in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., May 20-22, 2007, according to the two industry associations.
A four-time Emmy nominee and two-time winner, Shatner has an acting career that spans more than 50 years and includes his film debut in The Brothers Karamazov to his current role as Denny Crane in ABC's hit series, Boston Legal.
While his portrayal of Denny Crane garnered him both an Emmy and Golden Globe award in 2005, Shatner is perhaps most recognized for his role as Captain James T. Kirk on Star Trek. His role as Captain Kirk has made him iconic across generations, a highly-sought after quality for priceline.com, who approached Shatner to be the site's official spokesperson in 1998 and with whom he still enjoys a successful relationship.
In addition to his accomplished career on camera, Shatner has authored more than 20 best-selling books including "Get a Life!," which takes a satirical look at the cult-like following of Star Trek conventions and the novel series TekWar, which was adapted into a television series on the Sci-Fi Channel.
