Okay, I’m not shy to admit this, I’ve seen a few episodes of Star Trek, I enjoyed them. Next Generation I found more entertaining than the original series, but I can’t say I’m too much of a fan for the entire series as a whole. That being said, I’m posting this because I know David would probably enjoy it.
Yesterday at the Paramount Comic-Con board one character for the upcoming Star Trek movie directed and produced by J.J. Abrams was confirmed. Zachary Quinto, more popularly known as “Sylar” on the very awesome Heroes and “Adam Kaufman” on 24, was confirmed to be the actor to portray Spock.
Now here’s the thing, I know Star Trek fans, like every other fan group out there, are very particular about the characters. Will Trekkers/Trekkies support Abram’s choice to cast anyone but Nimoy(although I hear that he will play as an older Spock in the movie) in the roll of Spock? Will the fans believe that this choice is correct after Nimoy gives the script and casting his approval? Will Quinto finally shave? Why am I asking all of these questions? Well Comic-Con’s not over, and there’s still quite a long time to go until Star Trek comes out.
