William Shatner

Ask William Shatner

Now is your chance to ask questions of William Shatner, star of the CBS hit comedy $#*! My Dad Says. The best questions asked by fans will be packaged as a video and posted in the near future. Get more details and post your question!

Talk with $#*! creator

Justin Halpern, the creator of the Twitter phenom known as $#*! My Dad Says, will be chatting live with fans following Thursday’s episode of the new CBS-TV series based on the Twitter feed.  Potential chatters should register here.

This has relevance, of course, because Ben’s new track Your Dogs is the theme song for the show and Ben’s piano licks provide the interstitial music in and out of segments. And,  William Shatner, who has collaborated with Ben musically, plays the “My Dad” character.

Shatner in new TV series

Not exactly Ben Folds news, but: William Shatner, who has collaborated with Ben on many an occasion, is set to star as the dad who speaks his mind in the pilot episode of a sitcom based on the Twitter postings of Justin Halpern under his $#*! My Dad Says account (caution: crude language on this site). This, according to a post on The Archie-Bunker-esque postings from Halpern’s dad read like a sitcom in and of themselves. Any speculation as to whether Ben will provide the soundtrack?

Update: The show has been picked up by CBS Television and will be part of the fall 2010 schedule.
