Zachary Quinto: From Sylar to... Spock?

Zachary Quinto, the "Heroes" villain Sylar who everyone loves to hate (or is it hates to love?), has made it clear that he would love to play Spock in JJ Abrams' Star Trek movie whenever, you know, Abrams gets around to casting that little project. A while back a few film blogs took Quinto's comment and ran with it, saying he's "definitely in negotiations!" to play the iconic role.

Now...'s still a rumor, but more and more sources are claiming that the negotiations are for real, and that Paramount is inching towards sealing the deal.

So what, exactly, did he say in the first place?
Quinto: "I missed the Superman Returns boat ... so I'm angling for Star Trek. People are constantly telling me I bear some resemblance to Leonard Nimoy." Wow. It must be nice to go from making that jokey comment to negotiating with Paramount for a huge role in the Star Trek movie!

If this does come to fruition, I would be thrilled. I think Quinto is a fantastic actor and could definitely do the part of Spock justice. What do you think?

I have to admit, I've never watched Heroes. The whole "Save the cheerleader..." thing just put me off. Now I feel like I've been missing out though. Hello Zachary Quinto!

Never watched "Heroes," but this guy sure does look like he could be Nimoy's kin.

I'm sure there are substantive comments to make on whether he'd be right for the role, but right now all I'm thinking is, "He's really hot." I'll leave the intelligent talk to the ladies/lads who don't go gaga for dark-haired fellas as I do.

Star Trek isn't my favorite, but if Zachery loves it, why not? And, yes, he does look a little like Leonard Nimoy so that could seal the deal right there!

I never really thought Zachary was cute...until this picture. Holy mama! Unfortunately, I have no interest in a Star Trek movie...
