Iconic actor William Shatner turns 80 years old today. The man who played Captain Kirk in the original Star Trek series and seven movies, TJ Hooker, the loveable and brilliant lawyer Denny Crane on Boston Legal, and currently stars in the CBS sitcom "Sh*t My Dad Says," is still going strong and more popular than ever. Shatner most recently proved his awesomeness by recording a special wakeup message for the crew of the Discovery.

Happy Birthday Captain Kirk!
