Nimoy: Invested In Spock character

Leonard Nimoy explained why he said “no” to one project and “yes” to another, and then said something sure to cause some fan conversation. Movie spoilers are behind the cut.

They could get all of the living members of Trek's original cast to play wise old Jedi masters. That would be hilarious.

Okay, now I really want to see that scene, with Shatner in Yoda ears.

At the link Nimoy talks about how anyone could (and eventually did) say the lines they offered him in GEN - well, frankly, the same could be said about his lines ID. For even less screen time taken, as well. Sooo what's up with that, do you think?


I'm of two possible trains of thought: despite it being pointless so far as the characters growth is concerned, he simply took it on for a sense of gratitude towards Abrams, character relevance be damned, or...

Possible conversations with producers about what may happen later (ST XIII) caused him to accept the cameo because, while anyone could have said, "he's on New Vulcan and has taken a vow of silence regarding events..." it being him in the flesh, so to speak, adds some sense of foreshadowing possible future role/events on New Vulcan.

What I mean is, we may not yet have seen the last of Mr. Spock!

I suppose anybody could have said his lines in Into Darkness, but they certainly wouldn't have had the same emotional impact, particularly when he told Young Spock whether they won the first time around: "Yes, but at great cost."
