Shatner while talking with Jimmy Kimmel , revealed that he had lunch with JJ Abrams and was hinting though not to sure that there may be a part in the upcoming sequel of Star Trek .
If it does it would be a fitting passing the torch from old to new just like Nemoys revised role as the older Spock. But I warn you it is a long way from a done deal and rumors can spiral out of control. Here is an excerpt from Trekmovie.com report on the show and the 2 youtube videos of the interview that is also posted with Trekmovie .
