It’s an age-old rivalry – Star Wars vs. Star Trek and actor Donald Faison has brought it back into the arena.
The Scrubs actor, a self-professed Star Wars fanatic, made an appearance last week on Conan to promote his latest film, Let’s Kill Ward’s Wife, which is out now On Demand and in select theaters in NY and LA. During the appearance, he talked about celebrating this 40th birthday at Disneyland, where he donned a Darth Vader helmet hat. This led to a discussion about Star Trek and how Faison feels it’s “lame” in comparison to Star Wars. To prove his point, the actor brought a clip from the original Star Trek television series episode “Arena” where Captain Kirk (William Shatner) fights the Gorn.
Check out the video of Faison’s Star Wars vs. Star Trek appearance here below.
After Faison’s diss on Star Trek, William Shatner took to Twitter in disbelief:
The famous starship captain had a rematch with the Gorn back in 2013 where he used those same so-called “lame” maneuvers to once again defeat the bipedal reptilian.
Along with the part about Star Trek, there’s also video of Faison talking about his Disneyland birthday, as well as a Coco Web Exclusive of The Exes star’s “lost audition” for the part of Lando Calrissian Jr. in Star Wars: Episode VII.
