William Shatner Joining Cast Of Haven; Will Have Pivotal Role In Series

William Shatner
Actor William Shatner will be joining the cast of SyFy's "Haven." Shatner, known for his roles in "Star Trek," "T.J. Hooker" and "Boston Legal," will appear in a four-episode arc, playing a character who will greatly impact the town of Haven, Maine.

A veteran in the television and film industry, Shatner is still a very busy actor. Most recently, he has appeared on "Hot in Cleveland," "Rookie Blue" and "Psych." The actor has been in talks to reprise his role of Captain Kirk for "Star Trek 3."

"There's talk — simply talk — about the next movie," Shatner said.

Shatner also stars in a new home renovation series "The Shatner Project," on DIY Network. The show is centered around Shatner and his wife's renovation of the Southern California home which Shatner bought 50 years ago.

In addition to those projects, he's still doing his Priceline.com commercials as well as designing a motorcycle, a clothing line and a comic book.

When asked about the possibility of retirement, here's what Shatner had to say:
"What does retiring mean?" he asked. "It means you want to step back from what you're doing and do something else that's more interesting. I'm in the middle of such a fertile, febrile fantasy that anybody would wish for what I'm doing."

Another guest star has been cast in an upcoming "Haven" episode, titled "Chemistry": WWE superstar Christian, real name Jay Reso. He will be appearing on the show as a recurring character. Reso was the tag-team partner of "Haven" actor Adam Copeland, a former WWE wrestler who went by the name of Edge. Copeland portrays the character of Dwight in the SyFy series.

Reso will portray McHugh, one of Dwight's oldest friends and former military buddies, who has been living under the radar. Dwight goes to him for romantic advice concerning Dr. Cross, and he also asks for McHugh's help in saving the town of Haven.

The episode "Chemistry" airs Friday, Nov. 28, at 7 p.m. on SyFy.
