Last Night on Late Night: William Shatner, Billy Dee Williams Pitched J.J. Abrams Star Wars Story Lines

Last night, Jimmy Kimmel Live dropped a bombshell on Trekkies and lightsaber warriors alike. As J.J. Abrams took Star Wars plot suggestions from the audience, none other than Captain Kirk and Lando popped up to offer their own self-aggrandizing story lines. "You know, all this Han Solo, Lando thing ... Captain Kirk!" exclaimed William Shatner. "No rules, no skirts, you know. Road trip of a lifetime!" Billy Dee Williams proposed "Nothing but Lando" ... and an orgy in space. While Shatner couldn't concede to that, he did present his drawing of Princess Leia and Chewbacca in the throes of love. Plus: Nick Offerman's reprisal of his original birthday song for Megan Mullally left Usher momentarily speechless until he uttered, "Interesting." Also, (hip hop hooray!) Treach and the Roots performed "O.P.P" amid Naughty by Nature's ongoing tour; and Ed Helms announced Bradley Cooper's death (by hair spray) in the voice of Tom Brokaw.
