William Shatner's American Invasion

Just try keeping up with William Shatner. In the past year, the 74-year-old actor has won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Denny Crane on The Practice and its spin-off, Boston Legal. He's also reprised his Miss Congeniality role for the sequel, released a CD and — yes, there's more — played a little practical joke. OK, it wasn't so little. Along with his merry band of producers, Shatner punked the town of Riverside, Iowa, into believing he was shooting a sci-fi film there. In fact, it was all a pretense to capture the candid reactions of its starstruck residents for Invasion Iowa, a reality miniseries that's airing tonight through Friday (9 pm/ET on Spike TV). Here, TVGuide.com debriefs the erstwhile Captain Kirk on his most recent mission.
