A couple of months ago, rumors came about saying that Zachary Quinto, who plays Sylar on Heroes, was expressing his interest in pursuing the role of Spock in Lost co-creator J.J. Abram's upcoming take on Star Trek. It is also rumored that later this month at the Comic Con in San Diego, Abrams will be announcing some casting commitments for the Star Trek film he is going to work on. Will Quinto be included on the list? |
In a conversation with the Pittsburgh Post Gazette several months ago, Zachary Quinto first publicly expressed his interest in joining the cast of the upcoming Star Trek movie. Fans actually like the idea of having Quinto in the movie, although there haven't been any formal casting arrangements and negotiations.
Even if there aren't any official statements out yet, but there are in fact a few factors working in Quinto's favor. First on the list is the fact that Heroes co-star Greg Grunberg is a long time friend of Abrams. Second, Tim Kring has a lot of influential connections with the Star Trek production, such as his close ties with former co-worker and long time friend, Damon Lindelof of Lost. Thus, there may be a little string pulling here.
Connections and string pulling may be the way to go, but Quinto's biggest asset lies in the fact that he actually looks like Spock. It's not hard to imagine the thin framed, angular faced Quinto playing the cold and logical Spock.
Rumors have it that Abrams will be talking about two important topics in the Comic Con later this month. One would be the mysterious Cloverfield project which is causing the viewing public a stir, and the casting announcements for Star Trek.
The perpetrator of the rumor was found on Chud, which mentioned that Quinto was announced to be Spock, technically a tongue-in-cheek joke. Whoever started the rumor got fans thinking, and all they can do right now is wait for the Comic Con and for further official announcements.
