UPDATE: Will STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS Be The Last Time We See Zachary Quinto As Spock?

<font color=red>UPDATE:</font> Will STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS Be The Last Time We See Zachary Quinto As Spock?

Quinto, who plays Spock in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek and next summer's sequel, reveals that he would like his career to go in a different direction and suggests that his association with certain roles such as the popular Vulcan is "coming to an end".



Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, actor Zachary Quinto talks about his career and some of his more recognizable roles. He has previously played the serial killer 'Sylar' on NBC's Heroes, and is currently playing another serial killer on FX's American Horror Story. After being associated with a certain type of role, Quinto now says that he wants his career to "go in a different direction" after next summer's Star Trek Into Darkness, in which he reprises his role as Spock from J.J. Abrams' 2009 reboot. In the following quote, Quinto also suggests that he may not play Spock in future Trek movies after Into Darkness.

“It’s like an era of association with certain roles – a specific part like Spock, or a kind of part, like Sylar — is coming to an end,” he says.

A third Star Trek movie from J.J. Abrams has yet to be officially confirmed, although writer/producer Damon Lindelof has previously stated that a third film was being discussed. Additionally, all of the main cast members from the first movie were signed on for two sequels as of June 2008. While Quinto isn't exactly saying that he won't play Spock anymore, his comment on his association with a specific part like the Vulcan "coming to an end" is rather intriguing, especially since he's signed on to reprise the role again for another movie. In fact, it would be surprising that we won't see Quinto's Spock again for at least one more film (unless he dies in Star Trek Into Darkness). What do you think of what Quinto's comments?

Star Trek Into Darkness also stars Chris Pine, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg and Alice Eve. The film is set to hit theaters May 17th, 2013. We recently learned that not only will we be getting the first trailer next month with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, but a nine-minute preview will be shown with IMAX 3D screenings of the Peter Jackson film.

UPDATE: Quinto has taken to his Twitter account to address this report. Apparently, his quote about no longer being associated with specific parts was taken out of context.
