Has Abrams Found His Spock?

Not surprisingly, he found him on the small screen...

The guy's done a LOT of TV, but you'd probably remember him best from 24 or Heroes. And now it looks like the guy (Zachary Quinto is his name) has been tapped to play Spock in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek prequel.

According to Kristin over at E! Online, "squee" is the word of the day. At least regarding Quinto's contract to play Spock. Apparently she just scooped a pretty big piece of casting news. So squee away, Kristin.

I was saving Heroes for DVD and I just don't remember this actor from his stint on 24, so I'll leave it up to you guys: Is this guy right for Spock?

Oh c'mon. You didn't really think they were going to hire someone who looks like a young Leonard Nimoy, did you? That's just nutty.

He looks quite a bit like Nimoy to me. He was on the third season of 24, where he played one of the CTU computer guys. He wasn't really used on the show much, just a way to help the plot move forward, you never learn a whole lot about his character. And then his character was mysteriously dropped after season three with no explanation. One of the only people to be on a whole season of 24, disappear, and have not died by my counts.

Give him pointy eyebrows and a squint and he'll be perfect!
I never even would have considered him for the part.

Yea he's alright...I'm still not into this whole prequel idea, I still think it's a huge mistake, it should be a new crew not a redo of Kirk.

Great choice. Excited to see this new film. Hope they do as well for young Kirk (and that they include young Scottie too). I don't think every member of the original crew should be in this first prequel. (Leave out McCoy, Sulu, Chekov, and Uhura). Or if there is a McCoy, only as a cameo and expand on his relationship w/ Kirk in a later prequel.
