The Man From C.A.M.P.

Canadian Actors Mostly Portraying...? Shatner was campy before Trek mah friends. Jump to this scene of Man From U.N.C.L.E. and watch a young Tiger at work, perfecting his craft as he brings his A-game (along with future First Officer Leonard Nimoy).* Not surprising an appearance given both series were on NBC either. Oh, and Shatner could bring the camp for interviews too, even then, he brung it... every single interview.

*U.N.C.L.E. stood for The United Network Command for Law and Enforcement, which, in addition to Get Smart and The Avengers in the 1960s, were all primetime variations on a James Bond theme.

You didn't say Colonel Klink was also in the clip!

I toyed with the idea, but then remembered that Shatner had it in his contract that nobody besides Trek cast members could be mentioned in blog posts.
