Leonard Nimoy Says He Isn’t In Star Trek 2
No Spock Prime for Star Trek 2 says actor . . .
“My feeling is they don’t need me. They’ve got a wonderful cast. Zachary Quinto has taken on the character of Spock and I think he is wonderfully suited. He is a talented guy. He is a very intelligent actor, very well trained. They’ve got a great company of people replacing all of us. I don’t think they need me, frankly. It’s flattering to be talked about, but I just don’t think they need me. I understand, by the way, that they have just finished shooting and they’ve got a wonderful actor, Mr. Benedict Cumberbatch, who has a great reputation in the UK and I think is going to build a reputation here in the United States very quickly. He’s in the movie. I think they’re going to do just fine.”
So I guess we’ll just have to wait until May 17th, 2013 when the as-yet-untitled Star Trek sequel is to be released to find out then.
