Stump the King - Knight Rider
Tonight at dinner, a friend of mine mentioned that he recently met Brent Spiner at an event. He then proceeded to tell me about how a particularly annoying Star Trek fan spent the entire evening bothering Spiner with questions about his character Data.
It reminded me of an episode of Joey where a similar thing happened, except in the episode, Spiner was more than happy to reminisce about his Star Trek days. He even went so far as to take Joey's nephew out to his car to show him his actual uniform from the show.
It got me thinking, it's no wonder people are always approaching and bothering their TV idols, because when they appear on TV as themselves, they are more than happy to entertain their fans. Most of the time, they seem like they will do just about anything to squeeze out whatever ounce of fame may be left in the general public.
I mean, how come whenever you see David Hasselhoff playing himself he's always wearing a leather jacket and talking into his watch or running on a beach in red swim trunks? It seems it was only a few years ago that William Shatner made a living mocking himself any way he could. Remember his hilarious hosting stint on Saturday Night Live? He did sketches about Star Trek, Star Trek conventions and TJ Hooker and it was hilarious. Nowadays, however, Shatner is a multiple Emmy winner, so he's above that I guess.
It seems to me that you can't insist on keeping your dignity when you've already given it away.
Here is this weeks question...
What was Michael Knight's last name before he changed it to Knight?
Well done Jacob! Michael Long is the correct answer.
