Best known for his portrayal of Captain James T. Kirk, June 8th will see the legendary William Shatner available for autographs, photo ops and a, sure to be exciting, Q&A session. Shatner also had an amazing role as Denny Crane on the show Boston Legal, where he won 2 Golden Globe awards.

Frank also played different Rangers over the years including White, Red Zeo, Red Turbo, and Black Dino Thunder Ranger. He was in more episodes than any other character, 225 total, and was also in both full-length movies.

Esposito won the Best Supporting Actor in a Drama and the 2012 Critic’s Choice Television Award. He is also known for his roles in Do the Right Thing, The Usual Suspects and King of New York.
