Quinto On Trying For Spock

Although he was already on a hit series, Zachary Quinto lobbied for the part of Spock and was fortunate enough to receive help from the actor who originally played the role.

As reported by Trekweb, taken from the Heroes Official Magazine, even though he had a plum role on Heroes, Quinto wanted the part of Spock. "I was really fortunate to find out about the movie right when my 'Heroes' episodes started airing," said Quinto. "I was being asked what I wanted to do [in the press] and the casting directors read the interviews [about wanting to play Spock]."

Once he began working on Star Trek XI, he found Leonard Nimoy, the original Spock, to be of assistance. "We've been very close through this process, personally and creatively, so he's been very helpful and supportive," said Quinto. "I will be associated with Spock for the rest of my career. It's a great honor and I embrace it fully."

Working on two projects at the same time can be tricky, but the timing was right for Quinto. "When I got offered Spock, I was contracted for eleven 'Heroes' episodes and would be back for one or two. But my last day was the first day of production that 'Star Trek' shot. I finished and went back to 'Heroes.'
