The first Spock Prime scene in the 2009 movie. A few times it almost looks like Nimoy is in pain trying to keep his teeth in.
STAR TREK had found broad acceptance and there was no need - as there was with the series - to convince audiences that this was series science fiction. Nimoy didn't have to push "Spock Mode" anymore, for people to understand that he was meant to be an alien.
The "broad acceptance" of Trek had absolutely nothing
to do with how Nimoy and his directors chose to have him deliver lines.
