Leonard Nimoy says he is officially done portraying "Spock":|
But this time, says the 79-year-old actor-director-photographer, there are no more possibilities. Spock, his pointy-eared alter-ego, will live long and prosper. But it will be without Nimoy. He gave multiple generations something to admire and enjoy - and we thank him for it.
?I want to get off the stage. Also, I don?t think it would be fair to Zachary Quinto,? he says, referring to the actor who portrayed a youthful Spock in last summer?s smash Star Trek relaunch. ?He?s a terrific actor, he looks the part, and it?s time to give him some space. And I?m very flattered the character will continue.?
