William Shatner Likely Not Invited to Takei's Wedding

William Shatner most likely won't be invited to the wedding of his former "Star Trek" co-star George "Sulu" Takei, who will marry his longtime boyfriend in September.

"We have only 200 seats," Takei's partner of 21 years, Brad Altman, told AP radio this week.

"Our contact list has, like, 3,500 names, so we have to whittle it down and I don't know if William Shatner is going to make the cut."

Despite his problems with Shatner in the past, Takei, 71, called him a "wonderful actor."

"No one could have created the character Capt. Kirk the way he brought his singular metabolism to the character," he said.

Takei said he was often annoyed with Shatner for pressuring directors to do close-ups of Capt. Kirk, even when the dialogue focused on other characters.

"One or two times, you know, is fine," said Takei. "But when it happens almost regularly, it gets to be a little irritating."
