Zachary Quinto: Spock Rocking Feats

Thursday 07 May 2009

There’s no doubt about it: Zachary Quinto has some very big ears to fill in the new Star Trek reboot. But, perhaps logically, the Heroes baddie makes for an ideal younger Spock in a performance that has earned him praise from no less than Leonard Nimoy. Ian Spelling caught up with Quinto on the eve of the nationwide release of Star Trek.

A brief excerpt:

The Shatner-Nimoy-Kelley chemistry was key to much of the success of the original Star Trek. How was the Pine-Quinto-Urban chemistry?
The entire cast chemistry is, safe to say, really genuine. Everybody in this movie does such a great job, it’s exciting to watch. All of us came from different experiences but there was such a unity right away. And I think that comes across, I really do.

Chris [Pine] and Karl [Urban] are both hysterical. I think the work Karl does in this movie is exceptional, a really, really great embodiment of Bones – he’s made it his own, yet pays a clear respect to DeForest Kelley.

Actually everybody made me laugh my face off! J.J. Abrams is hysterical. John Cho is one of the funniest people in the world. And Simon Pegg - you don’t come much funnier than that! This is a cast with real humour and zest – they’re people who really love life.
