In my opinion, only two actors have managed to portray an interesting and convincing Vulcan onscreen: Leonard Nimoy with his cool, sarcastic dry wit and Zachary Quinto with his repressed anger. All the other actors, the whisperers (Blalock), the sleepwalkers (Russ) and the snobbish (most of the others), didn't manage to find a way to play the part.
I'd add Mark Lenard to that list.

Vulcans are certainly difficult to play, since you have to imply all the stuff going on behind the stiff, stoic facade, but I think Lenard managed to pull it off.
