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.

?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.?
He gave multiple generations something to admire and enjoy - and we thank him for it.
