Star Trek 11's Zachary Quinto Talks Spock

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008

Zachary Quinto, who takes over the role of Spock from Leonard Nimoy in director J.J. Abrams' upcoming Star Trek reboot movie, told SCI FI Wire that he based his characterization as much on the film's script as on Nimoy's previous performance of the iconic character.

"I really felt like my relationship to the character was specific to the text I was playing and to the world in which the character is being created right now, this time," Quinto said in an interview at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills, Calif., on July 20. "So I didn't feel beholden to Leonard, other than to honor the origins of what he created, obviously. But I think the whole project was based in that philosophy, so it wasn't a problem."

I liked the finale, just not sure that I loved it. But it left a lot of queotisns to be resolved, even beyond the Olivia swap.I would like to see what the machine was. Who made this? was this the machine Walter made and discussed in season 1? and why was it specific to Peter? and assuming Peter and Olivinate hook up now that they are back, how is Peter going to feel going from sexy and outgoing Olivinate to the uptight emotion frozen Olivia when they swap back?Is that considered cheating? (ok just having some fun there) But it is a way to have the relationship happen, without it being all happiness. imo usually when a show finally breaks that sexual tension between two characters, the show goes down hill almost every time. This way we got a bit of it, but when she comes back, there will be that uncertainty Olivia has that Peter liked Olivinate better. In your guys opinion, does John Nobel get an emmy nod this year? maybe even a win? he's been great, but it will be tough competition with it being Lost's final season, and with Mad Men and Breaking Bad being so critically acclaimed.
