If there was ever a familiar face, it's this one. Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner is in Buffalo this weekend for the Nickel City Con at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center.

Shatner's acting career has now spanned 65 years, with more than 20 films, 30 TV shows and numerous commercials.  He may be 86 years old now but he looks more like 56, and he's showing no signs of slowing down.

He says it's been a good life but it's also been a tough life.  Growing up in Montreal he had no idea he'd end up being an internationally known actor.  He says all he ever wished for was to be able to earn a hundred bucks a week, and for a while he couldn't even earn that.

Shatner and other sports and entertainment celebrities will be appearing at the Nickel City Con at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center this weekend.
