Served up

Shatner Audition for Mike Meyers Role

[Shatner] I must… kill… these girls.
This… machete… will do nicely.
[Casting Director] Stop, stop, stop, Bill. This isn’t a speaking role.
[Shatner] So, what do you want me to do?

Halloween (1978) had such a tight budget, they used the cheapest mask they could find for the character Michael Meyers, which turned out to be a William Shatner Star Trek mask.
Shatner initially didn’t know the mask was in his likeness. When he found out years later, he said he was honored.
