More "Shatner in Star Trek?" Mulling

The biggest question for J.J. Abrams' new "Star Trek" has been, "Is Shatner in it?" It seems like a miss-opportunity to not have him in it and I've said from the beginning that he's probably in the movie. As of recent, Shatner has been appearing on these hysterical web-interviews explaining how he's hurt that he's not in the new Star Trek.

I say hysterical because I firmly believe he's putting on for the press and fandom. He knows how rabid and absurd Star Trek fans are and he's fully aware of how little news sites and broken down, under-viewed blogs eat this stuff up. (Welcome to my world kids.)

That said, this latest, miniscule hint will probably send fans, nerds, me, the press...etc... stirring the Shatner pot again. Clifton Collins Jr. who plays a romulan, supposedly next to Eric Bana, has revealed the following:

There is, but I better not say," Collins said of possible big-star cameos. "There are certain things that as kids growing up, whether it's Star Trek or other shows at the time, all you got to do is really just hear their voice and your heart warms."
Asked if he was referring to characters and actors from the original television series, Collins simply smiled and said, "Maybe."

Certain voices? Original series cast? It must be Shatner!!! We all want to scream together. Surely this will seal the deal for some basement dwellers. I'm already pretty confident he'll be in the movie; but for those who aren't, by all means, masturbate at the following evidence.
