Actor William Shatner took the media to task for spreading fear about the market, and told CNBC he was bored by boardroom battles, like the one between Silicon Valley pioneer Mark Andreessen and activist investor Carl Ichan.
On Wednesday, Andreessen likened Icahn to an "evil Captain Kirk."
"I've got enough battles of my own," quipped Shatner, who played Capt. James T. Kirk in the "Star Trek" television series.
Shatner said he follows the market "quite a bit" and said while there is fear over the recent market volatility, which is compounded by media reports, the future of the United States is "glorious."
"The fundamentals are really good in this country. And where's all that money going to go in Europe and Asia? ... It's all going to come here," he said in an interview with "Closing Bell."
"Last time I read about the American dollar, it was going to plummet. China owns us. The debt is overwhelming. Nothing. Everything's changed. Debt's down, China doesn't own us and the dollar is up."
Shatner is also known as Priceline.com's "Negotiator." He re-signed with the company in 2012.
Unfortunately, he said, he sold his early shares well before Priceline hit $1,000 because "dotcom was failing, and I had a lot of shares." He said he also didn't realize the company was so well-run.
However, he received more stock when he re-upped with the company in 2012.
"I'm glorying in it," Shatner said.
