Zachary Quinto Named the New Spock

Zachary QuintoThere is a new Star Trek coming out, and Zachary Quinto is going to play Spock, along with Leonard Nimoy. It appears that Nimoy will play Spock as an old man (duh!) and Quinto will play the majority of the role as the story would mostly be a flashback.

For those of you who don’t watch 40 hours of TV per week, Quinto is best known as the bad guy, Sylar, in Heroes. While it wasn’t revealed who will play the young James T. Kirk alongside William Shatner, director JJ Abrams’ announcement of Nimoy returning nearly brought down the house at the San Diego Comic-Con.

    Spock: Don’t grieve, Admiral. It is logical. The needs of the many outweigh…
    Kirk: …the needs of the few.
    Spock: …Or the one

    No. no… no, you cant have Spock with out Kirk. Where do register my complaints at.
    KHAAAAAAAN! 🙂

    I do think Sylar will make a good Spock though, but those ears with his super hearing might make his head explode.

    Oh, there will be a Kirk, but I’m far more interested in who will be playing him than Spock.

    From this photo I found though, I think it really shows how similar his facial features are to Nimoy years ago… before gravity hit his face like a 2×4″.

    I agree he really does look the part.
    The persistent rumor is that Matt Damon would play Kirk. He looks the part as well I think, but every time I hear his name I hear like they say it in Team America. Little things amuse me.
