Star Trek star Leonard Nimoy, whose portrayal of the logical but lovable Mr. Spock captured hearts around the world starting in the late 1960s, died on Friday morning in Los Angeles. He was 83.

Did Leonard Nimoy ever use double negatives in conversation? Did he need to consult his cellphone calculator to figure out the tip on a restaurant bill? Did he understand who put that wormhole in space in Interstellar?

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."

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.

"She's really old. I think of her as an old friend. I mean an old friend. But listen, she's got moves you wouldn't believe. She’s totally flexible in the hip area. Her arms are stiff, but the hips? Totally flexible."
William Shatner, joking in the October issue of Playboy, on sale Sept. 17, about what the Golden Girl, 88, could teach a young "whippersnapper" like himself – who's 79.

William Shatner paid tribute Tuesday to Boston Legal costar Justin Mentell, who was killed in an car accident in rural Wisconsin.
"I'm deeply saddened to hear about Justin Mentell," Shatner wrote on Twitter. "There's no telling how far up the ladder he may have climbed. My sympathies to his family."
Mentell, 27, who played attorney Garrett Wells on the ABC show from 2005 to 2006, was found dead Monday near his crashed Jeep, the Associated Press reports.
