The guy’s done a LOT of TV, but you’d probably remember him best from 24 or Heroes. And now it looks like the guy (Zachary Quinto is his name) has been tapped to play Spock in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek prequel.
According to Kristin over at E! Online, “squee” is the word of the day. At least regarding Quinto’s contract to play Spock. Apparently she just scooped a pretty big piece of casting news. So squee away, Kristin.
I was saving Heroes for DVD and I just don’t remember this actor from his stint on 24, so I’ll leave it up to you guys: Is this guy right for Spock?
Oh c’mon. You didn’t really think they were going to hire someone who looks like a young Leonard Nimoy, did you? That’s just nutty.
