William Shatner to Write Leonard Nimoy Biography

Their friendship is legendary and their on-screen chemistry is undeniable. Now it appears that William Shatner will pen the official biography of the late Leonard Nimoy.

According to Showbiz411, the book is tentatively called “Leonard: A 50 Year Friendship” and is due for release in 2016 by St. Martin’s Press.

Shatner was heavily criticized for not attending his former co-star’s funeral in February. However, he did had a prior charity commitment with the Red Cross and two of his daughters attended the funeral on his behalf.

    I think that Shatner has become a great interviewer and has also a great connection to Mr. Nimoy, and family. I think that he’ll do an excellent job and hopefully will receive cooperation from the other cast members of Star Trek and other aspects of Leonard Nimoy’s life — family, photography, charities, etc.

    I think Shatner will do it with love for his friend and will make Mr. Nimoy a person beyond Spock for everyone. And that is as it should be.
