Here's a video Artist to Artist with Quinto and Pine

I am also posting an interview of Karl Urban on his thread.

Re: *Spock/Zachary Quinto Appreciation Zone*

I don't know if I can choose between Nimoy's Spock and Quinto's Spock, despite the fact that I saw the movie before the original series. I love them both in different ways. I'm in my 20's, so as far as getting into someone's pants, as CD put it, ZQ does it for me. His interpretation of Spock gives the character more vulnerability, which is interesting, but I'm always impressed by Nimoy's presence and gravity in the original series. His emotional conflict isn't on the surface as it is in the new film, but Nimoy so effectively conveys it with impressive subtlety. He was (still is) such a distinctly handsome man, too.

However, Zachary is sex on two legs. Two long, limber legs.

Gah. I don't know how to choose.

I loved them all; how could I not? I just saw McCoy again a few days ago. He's still in his box.

And we have a winner here, people!

^This!

...Not to disregard Quinto's acting ability. He brought a lot of newness to the character while still maintaining all his most important traits. That can't be easy. (And for anyone who watches 'Heroes', how much does that say for his range? Awesome.)

But why must we choose?

I think Quinto did a great job in his performance as Spock, though it is too bad he doesn't have the same voice characteristics as Nimoy, but I think we will get used to Quinto's voice before too much longer.

OMG I love Nimoy's voice, for sure, but there is something about Quinto that is waaaay sexier for me. Wish i could tell you what it is. Something about the timbre. It is still quite deep but has a lilting quality to it, while Nimoy is more the deep & authoritative type. Both good. Maybe I like the lilting b/c I'm a musician...?

Re: *Spock/Zachary Quinto Appreciation Zone*

Don't feel bad, Clancy! Nimoy's deep, authoritative voice makes me swoon...

But then again, so does ZQ's melodious lilt. He can sound pretty authoritative as well: "You will answer me." Oh... shiver...

And you're right, diftorhehsmusma. ZQ's acting impressed me just as much as his physical attributes. I like paying attention to his expressions in certain scenes. He says a lot just with his eyes.

So I have a question to all the female Trekkers and Trekkies, how does Quinto compare to Nimoy? Do you prefer Nimoy the original or Quinto or is it too early for you to say yet? As a male fan I always liked Nimoy and his portrayal of Spock though he was always to me equal in interest with Shatner's Kirk and I know that for the most part women seemed to prefer Spock to Kirk, now with the new cast its the same with me I like Pine and Quinto equally but I would like to know what the ladies have to say about the new portrayal of Spock.
Oh, for me, it's Nimoy, no question. Aside from acting (and they are both good actors), it's the look, the...the elegance, if you know what I mean, and of course the voice.

But that I like Quinto in the role at all - and I like him a LOT - says a lot about what a great job he did. But there's no way he'll ever top Nimoy for me.

Personally I hope we become just as attached to Quinto's Spock.

Oh, I doubt it. I'm sure it happens sometimes, but most people aren't going to reject the Spock they fell in love with at age 10 or 11 for a newer Spock, no matter how hot the newer Spock is. I mean, it just doesn't work that way.

I'm 51, GhostFace - you wouldn't want me to be untrue to my first love, would you?

On the other hand, I never did fall for Kirk or McCoy, so I am free to fall for the new ones as much as I want.

Anybody got the link to the video where Pine sneezes in the middle of Quinto talking, and Zach acts like he's all annoyed?

I'm a linguist and I totally agree with you!
