Re: What does everyone know about Spock Prime? [probably spoilers]
Let's hope that's not the case. 82 might be pretty old but there are many Hollywood actors and other celebs who've lived noticeably longer and with worse personal lifestyles and habits. That said: take no chances. The second you have the script for the next film ready, get Nimoy in a studio or in front of a greenscreen and get as many shots as you can (if he's in sufficient physical health to make the trip and endure the filming).
Nimoy WAS a pretty heavy smoker in his day. I always pick him when Howie Carr does Celebrity Death Pool (no offense, Leonard)
