    It kills me that some think the way these people look should be one of the most important components in choosing an actor for the part... :wtf:

    A valid point, and a long time Trek fan I have often been dismayed to see Nimoy age because as beloved as it - it is difficult to see mortality creeping up on him just like the rest of us. For that reason I am looking forward to the fresh faces/blood and actually very much look forward to Mr Pegg's prtrayal of Scotty! And it would help if Quinto/Spoq would SHOUT a lot! ;)

    my only enduring doubt is Quinto's voice. other than that, I'm okay with everything.

    My only concern is the voice in the beginning. I noticed that Saldana's Uhura voice is very different in the British trailer which sounded odd at first, too.

    But, hopefully, by the time the movie is shown, I'll be used to it.

    Again, I go back to Superman...

    Brandon Routh and John Newton may have resembled Chris Reeves alot... Christopher Reeves looked NOTHING like George Reeve. Dean Cain, Gerard Christopher, and Tom Welling and not exactly lookalikes...

    At least 8 different actors have played Superman in movies and TV, and he has been drawn by hundreds of different artists. This has not diminished Superman. Spock > Nimoy, Shatner < Kirk.

    This thread is still alive?

    As I said, I look forward to seeing what Zach Quinto does with the part. I'm sure he'll enrich the character as a whole.

    Yeah I would of COMPLETELY preferred Damon over this Pine guy! At least he is a cutie pie who can (for sure) act! And isn't he a known Treklover too....? That would of been a smart move and a lot of name recognition right off the bat.

    Yeah his Q guys nose is a little beefy but he really does look pretty good -- Of course not as good as Lenny, nor as handsome but not bad.

    Does anybody think this Q guy looks better than the original???
