Star Trek Stars in Westerns / Rowling Interview

Here are two fascinating collections of video clips. First, courtesy of SyFy/Blastr, we have gathered together short clips of Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner, DeForest Kelley, and James Doohan—all acting in grade-B westerns in the years prior to the original Star Trek. It's pretty, bending stuff.

Also courtesy of Blastr, we have an up-close-and-personal Oprah interview with Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling. It's pretty interesting. But don't be taken in by the sensationalistic headline (the sort of thing Blastr is inordinately fond of). Rowling says she could write several more Harry Potter books—what a surprise, eh?—but doesn't say she actually will. Still, good stuff. It comes in several parts.

I'm torn on whether or not Rowling should write another Harry Potter novel. On the one hand, as a fan, I'd like to know what happened to Harry after he grew up. Flicking my eyes to the other appendage, I question whether or not an author should bother trying to add something further to such a smashing success. If she doesn't match or best her previous efforts, it will tarnish her star.
That's a tough one.

If JK has more interesting stories to tell, more power to her! But it would be disappointing if it seemed that she was simply milking it for more. No way to tell unless she tries it, I guess.
