Leonard Nimoy NOT in STAR TREK Sequel
A few weeks ago we got a hot rumor concerning Leonard Nimoy in the Star Trek sequel...well, now we've got an update!
Turns out that rumor about Leonard Nimoy appearing in the Star Trek sequel while wearing "stately robes" has finally been laid to rest, as the man who portrayed Spock-PRIME has just debunked the long-standing rumor of his involvement with the film.
"I visited the set one day and that started some speculation about whether I was doing the film. It's all speculation. I talk to these people regularly. Zachary Quinto and I have dinner whenever we can. We just had dinner three or four weeks ago. I talk to J.J. about family."
Mr. Nimoy had in fact visited the set for a very specific reason and that was...
"I visited the set one day because I had never seen the bridge. When I was in the last film, none of my work was on the bridge of the Enterprise. So I wanted to see the bridge, and the bridge was extraordinary."
So there ya have it folks, NO Nimoy in the Star Trek sequel. Want further proof?
~Speaking to another site, Collider, about his rumored involvement in the untitled Star Trek sequel, the veteran thesp said, "Well, my feeling is that 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."
But the rumor of Nimoy playing Spock while wearing "stately robes" debuted alongside the rumor of Benedict Cumberbatch playing a certain baddie- Khan. So is it possible that like the Leonard Nimoy rumor being total smoke and mirrors, that too shall the Cumberbatch as Khan rumors be nothing but a bunch of nonsense? We shall wait and see.
