    William Shatner to Star in ?Sh*t My Dad Says? TV Pilot

    Justin Halpern?s immensely popular Twitter account ?Sh*t My Dad Says? is in the process of being turned into a sitcom, and there?s a powerhouse of industry veterans attached to the project. Today we can add William Shatner to the list, as he?s primed to star as the dad-that-speaks-his-mind in the pilot episode.

    With Shatner set to bring the words of Halpen?s 73-year-old father to life, the script ? co-written by Halpern and Patrick Schumacker ? has been greenlit for production as a pilot.

    The Hollywood Reporter also reports that the title of the project will likely change (presumably to something more TV-friendly) should the pilot become a full-fledged television series.

    Given William Shatner?s comedic timing and edgier persona of late ? especially when you factor in the poetic readings of Sarah Palin?s tweets ? we think there?s a definite match between the actor and the character that Halpern brings to life on a daily basis via Twitter.

    In fact, with the producers of Will & Grace behind the project, one would presume that the end result will not disappoint.

    There?s no word on the production schedule or when the pilot will air, but we?ll keep a lookout and keep you posted when we know more. Until then, let us know what you think of Shatner reprising the role of Halpern senior in the comments.

    I think it suits his current direction...sort of reminds me of his role as Denny in Boston Legal. He lit up that show!

    I agree. He doesn't take himself so seriously.
    Could be fun.
