Sure, hell do another.
After a 19-year absence, Leonard Nimoy reprises his iconic role as Mr. Spock in director J.J. Abrams new Star Trek prequel, set to premiere May 8.
Nimoy stars opposite Zachary Quinto, who plays a younger version of the half-Vulcan, half-human science officer. Quinto is better-known as the supernatural serial killer Sylar on Heroes.
Paramount Pictures expects the movie to do so well that its already preparing a sequel to the as-yet-released flick. And if they want him, Nimoy says hes in.
If J.J. Abrams calls me, I answer the phone. I dont say never anymore, he says. Still, he says, its too early to speculate about anything.
The character is much more relaxed about who he is and what his life should be about whereas (younger Spock) is just beginning to find himself, said Nimoy of the movies mature Spock.
It works extremely well. The character I portray in this film is much more like who I am today, personally. I am as close as possible to the character as I could ever be.
Except, of course, the pointy ears.
