From Sylar to Spock

For those of you who haven’t heard yet, J.J. Abrams announced that the rumors are true that Zachary Quinto (known for his portrayl of Sylar on Heroes) will be playing young Spock in the upcoming Star Trek XI movie. And Leonard Nimoy will be playing his iconic role as well. Hopefully, more than just a short cameo.

  1. I’m also hoping they spend a decent amount of time with Nimoy as well, Angela, but my guess is that most of the film will be Nimoy’s Spock remembering the past and the film basically being a flashback.

  2. I am interested in this movie, but I have to admit I am more a fan of Generations than the Original Series. But, because there is no longer ST on television, I might be very inclined to see this just to satisfy my nerdy qualities. haha

  3. John – I have a feeling you’re right. But a girl can deam..

    Christine – I don’t know that I’ll get past the serial-killer role he’s been playing. I think he’s already type-cast in my mind. But he does pull-off being emotionless well.

    Kaliana – I’m in the same boat. I’ll be going to see it just because it’s Trek. I don’t have very high hopes though.

  4. Quintos as young Spock?! I look forward to seeing how he does with it! That actually makes me want to see this even though it’s been a while since I’ve wanted to watch a Trek movie.

  5. A good choice as far as looks and celebrity go. I like that he is still a more minor actor as opposed to going with a really big name. I’m still not thrilled that this is the direction the Star Trek films are taking, but that is another discussion.

  6. I suppose it’s impossible to get Leonard Nimoy at the same age as he was in the original Star Trek? I can’t decide if this is a Noooooooo because – Spock cannot be replaced or if I’m typecasting poor Sylar.
