According to the Urban Dictionary, something is "bootsy" if it's particularly horrible or wretched.
As in, William Shatner thinks it's an absolutely bootsy decision to not have him
be part of the next Star Trek
flick. As you may have heard, JJ Abrams is directing a a new movie about the Starship Enterprise that is going to take a look back at the original crew's origins. So there are young actors playing the roles of Kirk, Spock, Scottie, etc. However, Nimoy (who played Spock) will
be showing up in the movie as well, and this is what has the Shat's panties in a bunch:
"I couldn't believe it. I'm not in the movie at all. Leonard [Nimoy], God bless his heart, is in, but not me," Shatner, 76, told The Associated Press on Thursday. "I thought, what a decision to make, since it obviously is a decision not to make use of the popularity I have to ensure the movie has good box office. It didn't seem to be a wise business decision."
Wow. Shatner is so high on himself that he thinks his "popularity" will ensure that the film has a good box office? Really? So what explains the relatively disappointing gross for Miss Congeniality 2
, Shatner? Sure, $48 million isn't bootsy
, but it was less than half the domestic pulled in by the original. Oh wait, I got it! The sequel didn't have enough of you in it, right?
