William Shatner Is New Boston Red Sox Umpire – in a Music Video

Originally posted 03/01/2013 11:00AM

The captain of the Enterprise has landed behind home plate at Boston's venerable Fenway Park.

William Shatner, 81, is no stranger to kooky parody, from his recent Oscar cameo to his Priceline.com ads. Now, he'll portray a home plate umpire for the Boston Red Sox in a baseball–inspired video for crooner Brian Evans. See the trailer below.

"It's my fantasy, my field of dreams," Evans, 42, said in a press release of the campy video for the song, "At Fenway," produced by Narada Michael Walden. "Shatner as the home plate umpire is as iconic as the ballpark itself."

Critic from Seth MacFarlane's Oscar Opener Reacts to His Cameo

Seth MacFarlane's TV Guide Critic Reacts to Oscar Mention

So, how does it feel to have your name dropped before a billion people?

Surprising, says TV Guide business editor Stephen Battaglio, who was part of the lively opening exchange between Oscar host Seth MacFarlane and intruder from the future William Shatner.

In a spoof (and a screen grab), the Star Trek captain showed the Family Guy guy what would be his upcoming review from Battaglio.

"I didn't know it was coming," Battaglio writes on TV Guide's website. "I was watching the show at home with my wife. Staring at the byline, it took a few seconds to absorb."

And once it did, he says, "every electronic device in our apartment was ringing, buzzing, pinging or vibrating."

After 14 years, "The Negotiator" will be no more.

William Shatner is leaving his role as pitchman for the online travel site Priceline.com, and he is not going softly into his good night. He's falling off a cliff. And dying.

Still, Shatner being Shatner, he first rescues a bus that's about to plummet. "Save yourselves … some money," he advises passengers in his final words.
