CALGARY -- Mr. Spock says it's about time Capt. Kirk got off his "butt" and got a real job. Leonard Nimoy, who played the pointy-eared Vulcan in Star Trek, is backing a bid to have his Canadian co-star William Shatner picked as Canada's next governor general.
A Facebook group touting Shatner for the post as the Queen's representative boasts more than 20,000 boosters.
"He needs something to do," Nimoy said Friday. "He's been sitting around twiddling him thumbs and I say: 'Billy get off your butt and get yourself a job.'"
