William Shatner Gives Trudeau Some Acting Tips On 22 Minutes (VIDEO)

William Shatner may be known for his over-dramatic delivery, but he's got nothing on Justin Trudeau.

The "Star Trek" legend appeared on "This Hour Has 22 Minutes" Tuesday night and gave Canada's heir apparent some tips on toning it down.

The material? Trudeau's infamous third-person rant regarding his comments suggesting he would support separatism under certain circumstances. You can see the entire performance below.


Shatner's hints? Try the throwaway or the bombastic approach, but never both at the same time.

Canada's favourite captain demonstrated the techniques for Trudeau's edification. Were his renditions better than Trudeau's version? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
