Subject:        William Shatner and William Shakespeare

In a forthcoming movie called Free Enterprise, William Shatner plays
himself and puts on a production he calls "William Shakespeare's and
William Shatner's Julius Caesar." Two clips ran on July, 1999 on E!
news.  In the first, Shatenr discusses the production with the wot men
over drinks. He talks about getting Sharon Stone (not available, they
say), then Heather Locklear (an in-joke given that she co-starred with
Shatner in that awful 70s' cop show).  In the second clip, Shatner does
a rap version of Antony's eulogy about Caesar.

PS: After checking a website for the film, I see it was released in LA
on June 4, 1999. Shatner's JC is a musical in which he plays all the
parts.  the film is supposedly a romantic comedy.
