LOS ANGELES (AP) — William Shatner is getting a new Priceline commercial co-star: Kaley Cuoco of CBS' "The Big Bang Theory."

In an upcoming campaign for the online travel services company, Shatner's Negotiator reveals he has a daughter, played by Cuoco. She's been schooled since childhood in the art of — what else? — deal-making, and now is ready to join dad in pitching Priceline.


Cuoco, 27, said the 81-year-old Shatner has made Priceline "cool," but the company wanted to update its message for younger consumers.


The actors taped a pair of spots for the ad campaign that begins Jan. 14, with plans for two more commercials to be shot this summer, Cuoco said. The first spot is available on YouTube starting Wednesday.


She and Shatner turned out to be a good comedic match and had "way too much fun" making the spots, Cuoco said. Shatner returned the compliment, calling her "quite a talent."


Then there's that connection between Shatner's "Star Trek" history and Cuoco's role on the geekfest sitcom "Big Bang Theory."


"The nerdy factor, the Trekkie stuff, it goes with 'Big Bang' and it all worked together," she said.

Damn I will admit that she is the main reason I watch the big bang theory .She has that essence of a classic American beauty , wrapped up with a lil girl next door and I just find that very alluring she is a  beautiful woman and she is no air head either .She is awesome and I hope to see her in many more TV shows or even a big screen movies

Kaley will make a nice addition to Shatner's blathering Priceline commercials.  I may even start paying attention to them again.  She is a delightful young actress -- does a great job as Penny on Big Bang.
I think Kaley Cuoco is one beautiful actress. She is on my list of the 100 Most Beautiful Women in the World. She is a big star on the hit television show the BIg Bang Theory.
