William Shatner: 'Hot in Cleveland' Guest Star Goes Live for Show's Return

By    |   Thursday, 06 June 2013 02:24 PM

"Star Trek" alum William Shatner will star alongside Betty White as a guest on TV Land's "Hot in Cleveland" on June 19.

The episode, which is being billed as "live and uncensored," will kick off of the show's fourth season at 10 p.m. EST, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Briam Baumgartner, best known for playing Kevin Malone on NBC's "The Office," also will guest star.

"At long, long last, I am working with someone who is older than me," Shatner, 82, mused in a TV Land press release, in reference to 91-year-old Betty White.

Despite starring on TV shows like "T.J. Hooker" and "Boston Legal," Shatner will always be tied to his role on the U.S.S. Enterprise. Shatner portrayed Capt. James T. Kirk from 1966 to the show's finale in 1969.

He starred in the "Star Trek" motion picture franchise which included seven films from 1979 to 1994. Shatner has written a series of books about his experiences playing Captain Kirk and co-written several novels set in the Star Trek universe. 

Shatner appeared in live television dramas of the 1950s and has been the host of NBC's "Saturday Night Live," so the live show won't be uncharted territory for him.

White, who also starred on NBC's "The Golden Girls,'' plays a cantankerous caretaker.

Filmed in front of a live audience in Calif., the TV Land comedy stars sitcom veterans Valerie Bertinelli ("One Day at a Time"), Wendie Malick ("Just Shoot Me"), and Jane Leeves ("Frasier") as three best friends who move from Los Angeles to Cleveland.

The Shatner episode picks up as part of Season 4 after the winter finale. That finale, written by Rachel Sweet, ended on Feb. 13. TV Land says, "There will be mobsters, mistaken identities, special guest stars, and twists and turns -- all live, when anything can happen."
