George Takei has come out of the closet. Fair play to him. Not particularly newsworthy but hey, it's a slow day and a good oppurtunity to use that 'beam' gag.

I was not really surprised. Takei was always so smooth, so balanced. I got a Richard Chamberlain vibe off him, and Chamberlain, though he didn't come out until recently, was clearly g@y.

Let's count off the number of ST:TOS cast members who have said they hate(d)/felt seriously let down by Shat: Koenig, Takei, Nimoy for a long time, Kelley for a while, Doohan for many years, Barrett admittedly at times, Whitney when she wasn't out of her mind on drugs. That leaves Nichols, who was too busy giving Gene blowjobs under his desk, as his only solid supporter.

I love the fact that Doohan's death thread title inspired someone to make a thread devoted to Takei's coming out party.

Aye, Jimmy would be so proud.

im not saying shatner wasnt a dick, but when you read sulus take on things, he sounds bitter that shatner was the star of the show. a lot of the resentment towards shatner seems to stem from the fact that he was the star and they were not. now, they will take their hatred to their graves. but to be fair, im sure at the same time, shatner was probably in insufferable son of a bitch most of the time.... all of the time
and i think that given the right circumstances, nichols just might've done the same thing for shatner.

Takei's resentment might be something to do with growing up on a US internment camp. I bet there was a Shat-a-like guard there.

More likely, he WAS just a gentleman.

I collect signed books. This first edition should now be worth a lot.

It's a big deal because, you know, CNN decides that being Dumbledore should be covered in a headline on their front page. Geeez.

Ok, Mike Piazza. You can come out tomorrow.

From what I've read, yes, the supporting players were unhappy with Shat being the star, but that was because he usuallyacted like the star. He would count lines in scripts to make sure he dominated and he constantly insisted that the supporting players couldn't carry episodes based around them.

Kirk had to be the center, with Spock and McCoy around him. Everyone else could have been played by a different actor each week. Apparently he didn't even much like the idea of Spock-centered episodes, which is why they were few and far between.
