Rumor: Into Darkness Quinto’s Last Star Trek? Unlikely [UPDATE: ZQ Tweets 'Simmer Down'] November 18, 2012

by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: Celebrity,ST09 Cast,ST: Into Darkness Sequel , trackback

Looks like we have another ‘will Zachary Quinto return to the role of Spock?’ scare going on. In a new interview promoting his work on American Horror Story, Zach said something which could (if viewed in a certain way) be interpreted as possibly saying he might not return for a third Trek film, following Star Trek Into Darkness.

 

UPDATE: Quinto Tweets ‘Simmer Down’

Shortly after TrekMovie made inquiries into this issue and posted first article, Zachary tweeted the following…

Quinto Spock Comment Sparks Latest Rumor

Zachary Quinto has again sparked concerns that he may be done with the role of Spock. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly promoting his work as a serial killer on the FX series American Horror Story: Asylum. Of course before taking on the role of Spock, Quinto was at work playing the serial killer Sylar on Heroes.


Quinto on ‘American Horror Story’

In talking to EW, Quinto says that he is ready to move on to less killer roles…

While the Asylum experience has been rewarding, Quinto says he’s also ready to “go in a different direction” with his career after Star Trek Into Darkness hits theaters next summer. “It’s like an era of association with certain roles – a specific part like Spock, or a kind of part, like Sylar — is coming to an end,” he says. “I think it’s safe to say this will be the last serial killer I’ll be playing for the foreseeable future.”

Some fans and websites have taken this comment to suggest that Quinto is saying he is moving on from the role of Spock. However, that seems to be a stretch. I haven’t been able to confirm directly with Zach yet, but a source close to the actor reminds that Quinto has signed up for three Star Trek films (just like the rest of the main cast). The source also notes "he is clearly talking about his next steps and seeking new projects and roles going forward."

This isn’t the first time there has been a Quinto Spock scare. Back in early 2010 right after Zachary provided voice work for the new game Star Trek Online the actor said that he was "stepping away from Star Trek for at least two years." At the time many fans thought this meant he would not be appearing in the Star Trek sequel (now titled Into Darkness). Quinto later clarified on his site that he wasn’t going to be doing any publicity or ancillary Star Trek product work but he also noted "Obviously I will be a part of any upcoming films… reprising my role as Spock." Note how at the time he said ‘films’ as in plural.


Quinto as Spock in 2009′s Star Trek

So while I’m unsure if Quinto will make a similar clarification of this latest Internet freak-out, I think chill pills are in order. I suspect Quinto will be on board for a third Star Trek film, along with the rest of the cast, as well as the team behind the camera as well. As for a possible fourth Trek movie? Well that is a bigger question we will have to get into later.

Three film contract. He’s coming back for Star Trek Into Light.

2. Ahmed - November 18, 2012

I hope that you are right Anthony, I’d really hate it if Quinto left Star Trek out of the blue before the sequel is out.

3. John from Cincinnati - November 18, 2012

Like him or not, he was the only actor from the current cast to make rounds on the convention circuit promoting Star Trek 2009. Maybe that was a contractual requirement. Nevertheless, the rest of the cast deems themselves “too cool” for that.

Someone tell Zoe Saldana its pronouned USS Farragut, not Farragot.

Someone tell JJ Abrams the extreme number of lens flares ruined his movie.

Pine needs to gain about 30 lbs of muscle for the role of Kirk

Pegg, you;re good.

Urban, outstanding

Greenwood, outstanding.

Quinto, thinks too much about making lines and doesn’t just “be the character”, comes across as an actor playing a part = bad

Yelchin- accent way too over the top

Cho = horrible in every way

4. Colonel West - November 18, 2012

As per Zachs twitter just now:

“simmer down kids. rumors are rumors for a reason. quotes out of context. let’s let the second movie come out before we talk about a third… “

5. KennyB - November 18, 2012

@ #3………LMAO Cause Shat was ALL muscle………yeah….And Yelchin way more accurate……Actually disagree with all your negative points. I enjoyed just about everything about ST09.

6. Rose (as in Keachick) - November 18, 2012

Actors are always looking for other projects to get involved with. It is part of the creative process and is a means to earning a living.

I agree with you, #5.

7. Howell - November 18, 2012

John from Cincinatti: my friend and I were at Wondercon that year. Zoe, Chris, Zachary, Kurtzman, Orci and JJ were there. Can’t speak for the others.

8. mattyb - November 18, 2012

hmmm i think #5 is really Shatner posting on here lol

9. mattyb - November 18, 2012

oops meant #3 *sigh ruined my own joke lol

10. Steve Johnson - November 18, 2012

I didn’t care for the JJ’s Star Trek movie, but I think that David Giuntoli (Nick on Grimm) would make a great Spock.

11. Admiral Stedman - November 18, 2012

I agree with Quinto. The sequel is still 6 months away. Why get caught up in him appearing / not appearing in a movie that is yet to be scripted.

If the internet was around when Nimoy was on again off again with his time as Spock with Phase 2 / TMP and TWOK we would have a similar knee jerk reaction in fan forums, twitter, etc.

Looking forward to the trailer on Dec. 14th.

LLAP All.

12. Johnny - November 18, 2012

The cast is under contract for THREE films. Move along…

13. Dee - lvs moon' surface - November 18, 2012

Gosh! … we need to have fun with something while the premiere of STID does not happen!

… ;-) :-)

14. Will - November 18, 2012

I’ve been thinking about this “Into Darkness” thing… what if this time, instead of all the lens flares, they’ve lit it so it’s hard to see everything? I think that would be funny. You know, in an artsy hipster douche sort of way.

But yeah, he’s contractually obligated for 3 Trek films so, duh, of course he’s gonna be in another one after this.

15. AJ - November 18, 2012

Cash is king. If I knew I had a high-paying gig coming up in two years, I would clear my calendar for it, for sure. “Typecasting” in the age of the Internet is a thing of the past, so blowing off ST3 makes no sense at all.

16. Gary S. - November 18, 2012

Sounds like much ado about nothing.

17. Jeff - November 18, 2012

It sounds like he doesn’t want to be typecast as a serial killer.

18. Victor Hugo - November 18, 2012

NuSpock dies in Star Trek into Darkness, returns again in Star Trek into Light, hence the Volcano scenes.

19. Karen Brown - November 18, 2012

No kidding. He said another role LIKE Spock or Sylar, not that he’d not finish the movies already planned. Sheesh.

20. Mad Man - November 18, 2012

It’s ironic that that Tweet is Quinto’s 999th.

It must be a conspiracy.

21. BulletInTheFace - November 18, 2012

#3: Oh, right. Shatner’s Kirk was all muscle.

Right.

Thirty pounds, maybe.

But not muscle.

22. Anthony Thompson - November 18, 2012

John from Cincinatti: I daresay most fans would disagree w/ your analysis of the cast. Did Shatner have huge muscles? Really? Many fans have critisized Pegg’s performance for being over-the-top and clownish. Un-Scotty-like, if you will. Yelchin was playing it exactly like Koenig played it. And Cho was outstanding. Nice action sequence. So, John…your pearls of wisdom are more than a little off-base.

23. LizardGirl - November 18, 2012

!!! RANDOM LONG POST ALERT!!!

John from Cincinnati (3) I’ve got nothing better to do right now and your comment is the most interesting so far so here goes.

1. I do like him, Zach that is. Like you said, he interacts with the fans. And isn’t bad on the eyes either.

2. The USS Farragut was destroyed, so Zoe prob won’t need that tip anymore, LOL.

3. The lens flares were definitely out of control. Maybe if it were in just a couple of scenes it wouldn’t have been too bad…but I don’t think it ruined the movie though, imo.

4. Chris is in great physical shape. If he were to gain more muscle than he already has, he would appear out of character. William was a handsome guy in the sixties and he had some natural muscle to throw around but he wasn’t ripped, as we call “ripped” today. Chris has defined muscles, but he’s also taller than Shatner so he has a leaner outline. But I think he probably already has more muscle tone & volume than Shatner had even in TOS…ah, next topic.

5. I completely agree with your assessment of Simon, Karl and Bruce. They are awesome. I’m definitely looking forward to more Dr. McCoy and Mr. Scott screen time.

6. Going off the the things I’ve seen Zach in, I would say that he’s exceptionally talented. Seeing him as Spock before and after watching TOS Spock I’d say that he captures the character well. In some ways even more dynamically than Mr. Nimoy. I speak of the TV series original Spock. I love the character (original Spock) but, imho, I don’t think Spock became more dimensional until The Motion Picture (aside from a few stand out episodes).

Also, Zach was amazing in Heroes. Skylar is one of my all time favorite villains. But if he seems to be forcing it to you, then what example or role do you think this is the case. Maybe I’ll agree or disagree, but would like to know what example you had in mind.

7. Disagree with you on Anton’s Chekov. He potrayed a fresh, young and eager version which, in spirit, isn’t far off from original Chekov. I’ve never met someone who speaks Russian so I can’t say from experience if Anton’s accent was phony or over the top. It sounded real to me. I watched the bonus features for ST09 where Anton and a few others talk about his accent. They seemed to dig it too.

8. Cho was awesome! But I want to see more of Sulu scenes this time around as well.

24. LizardGirl - November 18, 2012

Oops, Sylar not Skylar, duh.

25. Lostrod - November 18, 2012

#21,#22

Actually, Mr. Shatner was in excellent shape for his role as Kirk:

Regards.

26. RAO - November 18, 2012

I think they could all use about 20-30 pounds. The whole cast looked anorexic.

But Shatner didn’t have muscles, just awesome depositories.

27. Buzz Cagney - November 18, 2012

meh, he’s no Leonard Nimoy. Trek could go on without him.

28. Hat Rick - November 18, 2012

Great post, Anthony, and very detailed.

I said in another thread that there would be a backtrack, and I was right, in a way. The tweet I think explains that he didn’t mean to assert that this second movie would be the last time he’d play Spock.

Of course, his tweet also says that it’s too early to talk about a third movie.

In another connection, I see that narrow ties are in again.

29. Nick - November 18, 2012

I thought Zachary Quinto was excellent as Spock. In alot of ways very different to Leonard Nimoy, or at least a younger more emotional version. Will be great to see how he gets to develop the character further along with the rest of the crew.

All going well, it would be good to see the cast maintained for some time.

30. rogerachong - November 18, 2012

Like anyone of us will quit a high paying permanent job for a lower paying contracted job that can be cancelled on TV at any minute. Yeah right.

31. MJ (the original) - November 18, 2012

Love Quinto, but let’s face it, his career outside of Trek (since Heroes ended) isn’t exactly taking off. I don’t know of anyone who even watches American Horror Story for instance (and if some folks here watch it, would they be watching it if Quinto wasn’t involved? I doubt it). “What’s You Number”, “Girl Walks into a Bar,” “Margin Call”– anyone ever heard of these movies of his from the past two years?

You get the picture (no pun attended) — of course he’ll be back for the big paycheck and notoriety of Trek 3 – HIS CAREER DESPERATELY NEEDS TREK!

32. MJ (the original) - November 18, 2012

@3 “Yelchin- accent way too over the top.”

Like Koenig’s was “restrained.” Right! And BTW, Yelchin is from Russia, dude, so if you think it was over-the-top, then you have obviously never heard real Russians speak.

Koenig’s “Russian” accent is a made up one (and I love Koenig, BTW), while Yelchin’s is the real deal, and that is a fact!

33. JRT! - November 18, 2012

I watch AHS,and not for Quinto. I just like the show and Quinto wasn’t in at at the beginnig anyways. But then again,I like a LOT of things besides Trek,I’m pretty openminded,lol!

J-R!

34. Fangorn - November 18, 2012

Whatever happens, please don’t kill off Spock in the 2nd movie this time, since a new Search for Spock would be unlikely to happen!!

35. MJ (the original) - November 18, 2012

@34. “Nobody dies in science fiction.”

@33. I’ll try to find the show and give it a shot.

36. Trekboi - November 19, 2012

MJ at it again.
Again your not very original in your Criticism of Quinto.
It’s easier to criticize than to create.
It’s easier to critisize those who do than to be a performer yourself.

I love american Horror story & didn’t watch it for quinto he was barely in it to start with.
& a friend took em to Margin Call because it was relevant & a good film.

37. Cygnus-X1 - November 19, 2012

1. Langlang – November 18, 2012

—-Three film contract. He’s coming back for Star Trek Into Light.—-

Well played.

38. Mark Lynch - November 19, 2012

@32
Koenig has Russian relatives and knows full well how a Russian person would speak English if it was not their native language.

BTW neither Keonig or Yelchin spoke their Russian accented English authentically.

Yelchin used Koenig as his “inspiration” to pay homage to the character. A good idea I thought.
Koenig originally used an accurate Russian accent and was told to “beef it up” and the Chekov we know was born…

39. Baby - November 19, 2012

@31 response to MJ

I disagree with Quinto career. I see quinto becoming a serious working actor ,maybe not a huge movie star but an actor’s actor.

I see him been in many indie films that will get top awards. Margain Call was a small budget film that won critical praise. It won Quinto an indie award and was nominated for an oscar.

so yeah… Quinto still has a lot to offer.

40. JRT! - November 19, 2012

MJ-yeah,you should give it a try,it’s not bad. Start from the beginning though,it’s a kinda weird show,lol! But good.

J-R!

41. PaulB - November 19, 2012

#32 “Koenig’s “Russian” accent is a made up one (and I love Koenig, BTW), while Yelchin’s is the real deal, and that is a fact!”

Um, no, it’s not a fact. Yelchin doesn’t have/exhibit a Russian accent, despite being born there. His accent as Chekov was made up, based mostly on Koenig’s Chekov, and it bears about as much (or as little) resemblance to real Russian accents as Koenig’s. (It might be a little more accurate, but it’s not “the real deal.”)

It’s good to defend Yelchin against “John from Cincinatti’s troll-like critiques, but don’t misstate the facts while doing so.

42. Tom - November 19, 2012

He’s an amazing actor isn’t he? Dude, it’s obvious that it’s reading too much between the lines. They’re connecting this to Spock Prime’s death in WoK!

43. chrisfawkes.com - November 19, 2012

Logic suggest that his involvement with future Trek films beyond the third will be directly proportional to the pay cheque.

Just one more reason for fans to see this film multiple times. Do it for all trekkies.

44. Chris Pine's Hair - November 19, 2012

Pine isn’t playing Shatner, he’s playing Kirk. There’s a difference!

45. roose1982 - November 19, 2012

Isn’t it obvious what’s happening? Spock will die at the end of the movie, saving the Enterprise from Kahn. Then the third film will be “STAR TREK Another Search For Spock”, which Quinto will direct and Spock will be reborn.

46. Sebastian S. - November 19, 2012

My guess is they’ll all do one more after the 2013 movie (a contract is a contract, after all). But as much as I enjoyed ST09? I’d like the whole thing to end with a nice, neat trilogy. I don’t want to see this incarnation of Star Trek become tired and running on fumes.

Always leave ‘em wanting a bit more…. ;-)

47. BulletInTheFace - November 19, 2012

#32: Uh…. no, no it’s not a fact at all. Yelchin doesn’t have a Russian accent. What’s more, he wasn’t doing an authentic Russian accent in the 2009 Trek film–he was speaking like Koenig. He has mentioned many times, in interviews, that real Russians don’t speak the way Koenig did (the whole “nuclear wessel” thing), but he chose to do it anyway, to remain consistent with Koenig’s approach.

48. ME!! - November 19, 2012

#3: YES! Thank you! You put it perfectly! Took the words right out of my mouth…with perhaps the exception of Cho. I didn’t really have a problem with him, he’s just…boring as Sulu.

Pine definitely needs some bulk….and a haircut. He seems more like a kid trying to pretend he’s Kirk from watching tv.

Quinto is NOT Spock. Never will be. He’s fakey and like you said, he’s working on those lines and comes across as an actor saying them rather than getting into character and BEING that character as Nimoy did. Quinto is Quinto no matter what I’ve seen him in. Nimoy IS Spock whenever I’ve seen him in Trek, but someone else entirely when in other stuff. Mission: Impossible comes to mind. Nimoy is Paris on that show…no Spock to be found. I for one will not shed a bloody tear if Quinto moves on after this one.

Yelchin was just annoyingly over the top with the accent.

Saldana is just….I can’t place it….she’s ok, but irritating at the same time. She doesn’t come across as Uhura to me. And, though it’s not her fault, I HATE the Spock-Uhura relationship being played up as it was.

Greenwood was perfect.

Pegg was perfect.

Urban was DEAD ON perfect!!

Superb casting on the last three. Missed the mark by a mile on the others.

And are me and my wife the only ones who believe the roles of George Kirk and James T. Kirk should have been swapped between the actors playing them? Chris Hemsworth would have been an AWESOME Jim Kirk!! THAT would have been the Kirk we know and love.

49. Charlie - November 19, 2012

#48 – I agree that Hemsworth could have been an awesome Jim Kirk if the movie picked up early in the original timeline’s first five-year mission, but that’s not the story being told. Chris Hemsworth’s George Kirk is what Pine’s Jim Kirk (both the character and portrayal) should aspire to become… and I think that was Captain’s Pike’s point!!

50. KG - November 19, 2012

He’ll do all the Star Trek’s he signed up for, which is three. After the 3rd one comes out we’ll see what happens.

51. Baby - November 19, 2012

@48

hey dont blame zoe…blame the script. I think you just might like her as uhura is she plays her the way she plays neyteri in Avater.

hopfully there will be strong females leads in the sequels.

52. Olly - November 19, 2012

I’d disagree with #3. Pegg was the only actor in star Trek who really grated. Awful performance. Hammy and heavy handed. As a Brit I wanted him to do well but he sucked.

Thank god Cumberbatch is onboard.

53. Phil - November 19, 2012

Maybe Spock becomes a serial killer, bent on revenge…..

Nah, he just dies in Khan 2.0, too.

54. Bob Tompkins - November 19, 2012

I agree with the lens flares issue….
I would say something is missing from ZQ’s performance as Spock but no idea as a layman what it is. It just rings hollow. Recasting the role after Into Darkness would not bother me at all.
Everything else is fine if the writers can avoid the massive plot holes this time.

55. I am not Herbert - November 19, 2012

it’s not his performance… it’s the writing / directing / design… =(

new writers, new director(s), new ship designer(s), ST will be fine… ;-)

56. Reign1701A - November 19, 2012

@48 Didn’t Hemsworth audition for Jim Kirk? If memory serves, I believe they said no to him because he looks too old/mature, which I would agree with. He certainly has the right look, which is why they still cast him as a Kirk.

All that being said, Pine’s Kirk is spot-on. Cocky and brash without doing a Shatner impression. The “even fight” line at the Iowa bar line is so spot-on Kirk I squealed.

57. Disinvited - November 19, 2012

#48. ME!

You are seriously dropping a patented Captain Kirk logic bomb in my sequitur circuits with your implication that Kaley Cuoco is a better Spock than Mr. Quinto.

And yet, I do kinda hope that there’s a lighter moment in the sequel’s grit, gruel and intense drama for a Kaley Vulcan walk on. But that may just be the logic bomb messing with my mind.

58. boborci - November 19, 2012

Bob Tomkins

Have dealt with most plot holes. Bring up your favorite and I will explain it again since I am feeling generous.

59. bootycall - November 19, 2012

OMG!!! This means that SPOKC will DIE at the end of the next movie!! That, then, CONFIRMS!!!! that KHAN! is te villain@!! KHAAAAAAAAAAN!!!

60. Spanish Brock - November 19, 2012

Wow, folks are grouchy today!

Chris Pine and ZQ are nearly perfect in their roles. Indeed, I can’t think of a better cast movie in the last 20 years – each player fitting into an inconic role with such deftness.

Maybe its just that folks haven’t had their coffee yet, but I think most would agree that casting/acting was a highlight of ST09.

61. Spanish Brock - November 19, 2012

AND thanks boborci! I don’t comment on here very often, but I love your movie. Looking forward to May 2013 very much.

62. MJ (the original) - November 19, 2012

@41 “Um, no, it’s not a fact. Yelchin doesn’t have/exhibit a Russian accent, despite being born there. His accent as Chekov was made up, based mostly on Koenig’s Chekov, and it bears about as much (or as little) resemblance to real Russian accents as Koenig’s. (It might be a little more accurate, but it’s not “the real deal.”)”

Nice try, but I have been to Russia twice, including Leningrad once. His accent is most definitely authentic — whether you choose to embrace an authentic Russian accent is up to you? I’d urge you to modify what you “perceive” to be a real Russian accent.

63. Red Dead Ryan - November 19, 2012

I seem to recall that Anton Yelchin partially based his Russian accent on Walter Koenig’s, as well as his parents.

So what we have here is an exaggeration of the real Russian accent.

64. Anthony Pascale - November 19, 2012

RE: Accent
Read what Anton told me on how he developed his ST Russian
http://trekmovie.com/2009/05/08/exclusive-interview-with-anton-yelchin/

65. Red Dead Ryan - November 19, 2012

Actually thinking about it, his accent isn’t really far off. I’ve heard some (not all) Russian hockey players talk with a similar accent. The “wector, wector” phrase is pure Chekov-speak, though. Overall, the accent is Russian, but obviously exaggerated a bit.

66. SirBroiler - November 19, 2012

Long before anyone knew if rebooting Star Trek was going to be a B.O. hit – all of these actors signed multi-picture deals. And based off of the steep decline of the franchise in the years leading up to the movie – and that most of these actors had yet to make a mark – the deals were probably pretty crappy.

More than likely all of the actors will try to renegotiate in some form or fashion – usually for points – now that Star Trek has shown it can compete in the competitive theatrical landscape. But, I guarantee you Quinto and all of the other actors are contractually obligated to do all three pictures whether they are getting paid big $ or not.

67. T'Cal - November 19, 2012

So Spock dies in STID??? SPOILER ALERT!!

68. Gilberto - November 19, 2012

He’ll be back for more treks in the future. Especially after seeing that his carreer was not so diverse as he was led to think…

69. Smike - November 19, 2012

I think we have to grow accustomed to the idea of these roles being constantly recast over the next couple of years. And I personally like the idea. Why not? It worked for Bond, Batman etc…why not for Kirk and Spock? I’d rather see three or more people taking on the role of Spock than NuTrek being finished after only three movies. You cannot afford paying movie stars for more than a trilogy…but the new Star Trek has only just begun…

70. Smike - November 19, 2012

That said…i’m rooting for Psy being cast as JarJar Binks in Star Wars – Episode VII… Gungan style…

71. PaulB - November 19, 2012

#62 – In the link Anthony provided (#64), Yelchin says: “I have no problem doing a real Russian accent, but that wouldn’t be Chekov to me.” And, “…it was fun to purposefully mess around with the Russian accent — to purposefully change what I thought a Russian accent was to suit that stereotype they had in the sixties.”

So according to the Russian actor himself, his Chekov’s accent is not an authentic Russian accent.

My previous comment is accurate, and I don’t need to change how I “perceive” anything here because my perception matches Yelchin’s description of his Chekov accent.

72. MJ (the original) - November 19, 2012

@64. Thanks Anthony. I stand corrected then, but some of the people I met in Russia have really deep accents like his. I guess it would be like if you came to New Jersey, and heard the local U.S. dialect there, and were surprised that no one sounded like Henry Fonda.

73. Rose (as in Keachick) - November 19, 2012

Chris Pine has bulked up for STID and has a haircut. Frankly, I’d rather that Kirk had been allowed to grow his hair a little instead of having it cut that ugly short back and sides style. I see that Jack Ryan has got a very short hair cut as well – not very attractive, especially now that any residue of blondness has long ago been washed out.

I wish that producers/directors etc would allow Chris’s characters to have longer hair. He has nice hair…

When I first heard Anton Yelchin talk (and I don’t mean any of his characters) I could detect another more European kind of an accent underneath his American English accent. He still has a Russian accent, though it is not that pronounced. Obviously that would be because he has spent most of his life in an American English speaking culture. I am surprised no one else seems to be able to hear it.

This was BEFORE I found out anything about the actor, ie that Anton Yelchin was actually born in *Leningrad and his parents emigrated from Russia to the USA when Anton was six months old.

* now St Petersburg, the city’s original name

74. Rose (as in Keachick) - November 19, 2012

Speaking of Zachary Quinto’s performance in American Horror Story – his portrayal of the one half of the gay couple who used to own the house in question was GREAT. I really enjoyed his performance.

I believe Zach appears again in AHS but playing a different character. I think it may have screened here on NZ television already. I’m not sure.

@Zachary Quinto – seriously – good work!

I find much of AHS rather dull, dark, gross and boring. Quinto’s (and the actor who played his gay partner) role was one of the more interesting and entertaining aspects of the whole series so far.

75. LizardGirl - November 19, 2012

What would make my movie day would be:

To have Chris Pine say the “Space…” mission statement for the movie. Not necessary, but would be nice.

Or even if they said “Last time on Star Trek…” in Majel’s voice, I’d hit the roof! But, that was something that was mainly done in TNG, DS9, VOY. Still would be all kinds of awesome though.

76. yrch - November 19, 2012

#10 From the looks I totally agree.

77. Red Engine - November 19, 2012

Honestly, I just read his comment as saying that the era of being limited by typecasting as coming to an end (and I agree, BTW).

#75 – Totally agree. I am hoping that Chris Pine (aka Captain Kirk) says those words in the opening scenes.

79. No Khan - November 19, 2012

Internet fanboy lobbying sure helped Quinto get him noticed for the Spock role due to the Heroes TV show fans. That Lobbying was noticed by Abrams & Paramount. And put him at the top of the list.

80. NCM - November 19, 2012

RE: ZQ’s career projection:

As many know, ZQ’s started-up a production company with a couple pals and brought us Margin Call–with it’s incredible cast and rave reviews. I saw MC. It was truly an original, and remarkable on so many levels. I would love to see elements of its style adapted to other stories.

Quinto’s made it clear that his preferences are for producing the kinds of movies he (not Hollywood) wants to make, and stage acting. He’s expressed appreciation for Trek paving the way for him to follow those less flashy pursuits, but seems disinclined toward big bling productions. Perhaps he’s doing just fine, or better–just what he wants to do.

81. MJ (the original) - November 19, 2012

@71 “So according to the Russian actor himself, his Chekov’s accent is not an authentic Russian accent.”

Yep, I was wrong and you were right. Sorry!

PS: For a handful of people on this site who always claim that I think I am am never wrong, etc. please note this. I ALWAYS own up when I am proven wrong on something.

82. NCM - November 19, 2012

@75. LizardGirl – November 19, 2012

What would make my movie day would be… To have Chris Pine say the “Space…” … Not necessary, but would be nice.

Huh. Two things occurred to me: 1) But of COURSE he will! and 2) Will the theater erupt into applause at that moment (I think it will!), and, okay, 3), what percentage of those applauding will wonder why the hell they’re doing so?

Hadn’t even thought about this, but I’m looking forward to it, now.

83. NCM - November 19, 2012

@ 81. MJ (the original) – November 19, 2012

“Yep, I was wrong and you were right. Sorry! …I ALWAYS own up when I am proven wrong on something.”

Yes, you do, and it’s a good thing, too; otherwise, you’d be absolutely insufferable;)

84. MJ (the original) - November 19, 2012

@80. It is certainly easy to have that attitude when you are not being offered a lot of big roles. And if he really believed that, I doubt he would have done either Heroes or Trek.

Margin Call is probably a good movie, but who really saw it? (note: its lifetime gross was only $5M). And would you have even been aware of it is ZQ had not been in it? I doubt it.

I think he is a very good actor and a great Spock. But I am not buying the “actors-actor” and “misunderstood genius” vibes that he seems intent on fostering as his public persona.

85. MJ (the original) - November 19, 2012

“Yes, you do, and it’s a good thing, too; otherwise, you’d be absolutely insufferable;)”

YOU ARE 100% CORRECT !!!!!

86. NCM - November 19, 2012

@85: I knew you could handle the truth:)

On ZQ, actually, MJ, I was surprised at how quickly after the success of Trek he expressed his interests. I don’t think he’s fool enough to intentionally mislabel himself in order to advertise himself. Believe it or not, many actors prefer theater–Nimoy, if I recall, also preferred theater. Like Quinto, he didn’t appreciate too much spotlight intruding on his personal life. I suspect if there’s a universal among actors, it’s an eagerness to take television or film work to gain recognition and open doors, and perhaps b/c you never know when offers will cease; but I see no reason in your speculation: Do you simply assume that all actors want the same thing? Mega stardom at the cost of a private life?

87. NCM - November 19, 2012

As for reason for seeing MC… I like Pine, Quinto, Orci (usually;): so I have an interest in their films: but for me, reviews play a role in turning interest into action. I was more excited about People than about MC, but the reviews deflated my interest in People, sadly: not so with MC–It’s really a good movie. I’ve never watched Heroes or the horror series Quinto does.

88. Suellen - November 19, 2012

One does not strive to become an actor without seeking public acceptance and adulation for their performances. Nothing wrong with wanting this attention, just saying they seek outside validation of their performances otherwise why do it in front of the public. i saw MC and thought it was a great movie. ZQ wanted to play Spock and while I enjoyed the ST2009 I did not think his performance was outstanding, nor did I think CP performance was outstanding. I am an “old” Trekker and did miss Kirk and Spock being out of character. Granted I will JJ the right that who of any of us are the same person at 22 that we are at 32. Our experiences shape us. I agree with ZQ his has been typed case with his Sylar role and does need to branch out

89. Red Dead Ryan - November 19, 2012

Yeah, I wrong about Yelchin’s accent as well. I had forgotten about the article that Anthony reposted.

Ah well, such is life. Nothing wrong with admitting when I’m wrong.

90. MJ (the original) - November 19, 2012

@86 “Do you simply assume that all actors want the same thing? Mega stardom at the cost of a private life?”

I’m not saying that. But I am saying that it is certainly easy for him to maintain that aloof attitude when he’s not getting any major offers beyond Trek.

Now, if we learned that he was turning down major roles to pursue his interest in art films and theater, that would be different — that would affirm what you are saying. But I don’t recall of any such reports?

91. Red Dead Ryan - November 19, 2012

Most actors who struggle to land roles in major motion pictures often claim that they are more interested in small, indie projects. Phooey. Those projects are hard to get paid for, hard to sell to studios to produce, promote and release, and tend to be ignored (intentionally or unintentionally) by the mass media and general audiences.

For many actors, blockbusters do help their careers. Case in point, Chris Pine. Before “Star Trek”, he was doing smaller roles in smaller movies. Not a lot of folks had even heard of him. But his critically acclaimed performance as Captain James T. Kirk has gotten him roles in other blockbusters, such as “Jack Ryan”, and co-starring with Denzel Washington in “Unstoppable”. Of course, it may be that Chris Pine is more of a leading man actor than Zachary Quinto is.

Reading between the lines, it sounds like Zachary Quinto is a bit disappointed where his career outside of Trek is going. I don’t know this for sure — only he does — but his statements seem to indicate this.

Having said that, I doubt he’s getting all depressed about it. He may be a little disappointed, but I’m sure he knows how lucky he is to be doing something he loves and getting well paid for it. And he still enjoys a lot more freedom than regular folks like us ever dream of.

92. LizardGirl - November 19, 2012

@75 Rose:
It would be a nice treat for us. I want to hear his velvety voice saying those iconic words!

@ 82 NCM:
Yeah, I’m so gonna cheer for that. Screw the naive, casual movie-goer. They can clap or not–they don’t have to understand why. :P

*********
I tried watching American Horror Story show. ((Shakes head)) I had to stop, it was weird–in a bad way, made me feel uncomfortable. I couldn’t understand what was going on, there was like three different plots happening. People getting killed or…were they already dead? Idk. But I started/stopped watching AHS long before Zach came into it. Still won’t watch that thing. Funny how something so graphic/ disturbing came from the creator of the songtastic Glee. 0_0 But it seems to have a cult following, which is good news for ZQ.

Either way I agree with Red Dead Ryan (91). Like his costars, Zach will and should use Star Trek to further advance his career, even if his differs from, say, Chris’ career. I really want to see ZQ in more things whether it’s acting, producing, etc.

93. Kev-1 - November 19, 2012

I didn’t know Quinto had done conventions. Good for him. I think these roles will be recast often from now on. Whatever he does on Trek, his performance in “Margin Call” , for me, will probably be considered his best. So far.

94. NCM - November 19, 2012

91. Red Dead Ryan – November 19, 2012

“Most actors who struggle to land roles in major motion pictures often claim that they are more interested in small, indie projects. Phooey.”

Sorry, Dead, but with no illumination of your inside Hollywood track, the obscure poll of disaffected actors you uncovered, or evidence of divine judgement, your statement seems a bit ‘phooey.’

It’s common knowledge that many actors across the spectrum prefer theater–whether it’s the direct audience connection/feedback, smaller venue, work-day predictability, peer bonding, catching a cab home…, doesn’t seem a stretch…

If I recall correctly, Quinto spoke of his interests early into Trek’s renewed fame and if his ambition had been to become a blockbuster action figure, I doubt he’d have seized that very moment to start a production company geared toward indie films.

95. Red Dead Ryan - November 19, 2012

#94.

Yes, there are actors who do prefer stage work. But then there are also the actors who “choose” to do indie films. The ones who choose the latter often don’t have a choice because the studios don’t offer them any work in blockbuster and mainstream movies.

The actors who do theatre work by their own choice are the ones who also do big, mainstream movies.

Actors who are forced to do indie films aren’t necessarily going to admit their own disappointment. They want to put as positive a spin on their situation as they can, so that they do at least continue to get work in the indie film industry.

96. VulcanFilmCritic - November 19, 2012

Why do we have to read between the lines in order to understand what someone is saying these days? Shouldn’t the interviewer at EW have been sharp enough to ask a follow-up question like: “Are you saying that you might actually LEAVE the Star Trek franchise, Mr. Quinto?” But instead of reporters, we have a bunch of scribes who merely take dictation.
I’m not interpreting this comment to mean that Mr. Quinto is getting out of the Spock business. He’s really good friends with Leonard Nimoy, and they see each other socially all the time. How could he look the old dude in the eye if he left Spock to another actor who might crash and burn the franchise? And how would the Supreme Court explain that? Katra transfer? Spock is not William Bell, you know!
Spock is the pivotal character and even JJ Abrams has said that “Star Trek” is really a show about an extraterrestrial (who serves with humans on a starship.)
So let Mr. Quinto finish his tenure at Star Trek for at least three movies. I don’t see the point of leaving at this juncture, unless this is some kind of negotiating ploy for more money.
Otherwise, how hard is it to play Spock these days anyway? While Mr. Nimoy had a rather rough time of it, with the demands of a weekly series, Mr. Quinto only has to show up once every four years to slap on the ears. As for acting, I agree with others above who say he just isn’t inhabiting the character as well as Mr. Nimoy did. Even little Jacob Kogan was more like Nimoy-Spock than Mr. Quinto. I understand that he wants to take the character in his own direction, and Nimoy wisely, didn’t interfere, but long-term believability is going to depend on a little more logic, dignity, restraint and pathos, than snarkiness and periodically looking pained.

97. MJ (the original) - November 19, 2012

@94 “If I recall correctly, Quinto spoke of his interests early into Trek’s renewed fame and if his ambition had been to become a blockbuster action figure, I doubt he’d have seized that very moment to start a production company geared toward indie films.”

Contrarily, I would bet you that if Paramount had come to him right after Trek, and asked him to do a $10M major two movie deal — a movie with Denzel Washington and a Jack Ryan Reboot — I bet you he would have said:

“YES…WHERE DO I SIGN?”

98. MJ (the original) - November 19, 2012

@96 “Why do we have to read between the lines in order to understand what someone is saying these days? Shouldn’t the interviewer at EW have been sharp enough to ask a follow-up question like: “Are you saying that you might actually LEAVE the Star Trek franchise, Mr. Quinto?” But instead of reporters, we have a bunch of scribes who merely take dictation.”

That is because what means “Reporter” to you and I who live outside of Hollywood, means “Sycophant” inside of Hollywood.

99. M.J. (Mark James Tuker) - November 20, 2012

“but let’s face it, his career outside of Trek (since Heroes ended) isn’t exactly taking off. I don’t know of anyone who even watches American Horror Story for instance (and if some folks here watch it, would they be watching it if Quinto wasn’t involved? I doubt it).”

MJ’s at it again, so let me get this straight cause Know one YOU know watches American Horror Story, means that the show isnt hugely popular? That his career isnt doing really well?

yup your right MJ, because you and your friends are the Barometer on what is considered popular and what is watched by mainstream america right now. geesh get over yourself man, and check the ego at the door.

And AHS has a great ensemble cast, besides Quinto, so your comment that those of us on here who watch do so only cause he is on there is a bunch of Malarchy. further more the show is very original and well written, directed. perhaps if you gave it a chance you would see that.

But guess not since you and your friends who don”””’t(enough apostrophes for you there that time?) watch it, know the pulse of world wide television viewers and everyone else is just wrong

100. M.J. (Mark James Tuker) - November 20, 2012

90 MJ,
You clearly have never met him, cause if you had you would see that he (and his brother Joe for that matter) are anything but aloof.

And he does have a great intrest in independent film, as others on here have stated that includes starting a indie production company, that has also helped others get a start in the film industry.
I had the pleasure of seeing two of the independent films he has produced and acted in at this years Dances with Films festival in Hollywood back in june.

They were great, and recieved alot of aclaim durring and after the festival.
But again MJ and pals are the barometer on American popularity

101. Mark Lynch - November 20, 2012

If Bob Orci is watching….

I would like to cast my vote to have Pine (as Kirk of course!) do the “Space the final frontier, yada yada yada ya” thing in STID.

Either at the end or the beginning. But I feel it would come better at the end, after we have all seen that he has indeed earned the right to be sitting in the centre seat.

Just my two pence worth.

102. Mark Lynch - November 20, 2012

I know MJ can sometimes come across as a bit over the top with his comments. But wow, some of you here really like to jump on the guy a bit quickly and harshly I would say.

To quote the great Jack Nicholson in Mars Attacks “Can’t we all just get along?”
Mind you that didn’t end all that well did it? ;-)

Never mind…

Like what I say will make any difference anyway!

103. ajdczar - November 20, 2012

He even negotiates like Nimoy…

104. TrekMadeMeWonder - November 20, 2012

Great comment 103.

I suspect that he is getting tips from the great Nimoy himself.

Shrewd Quinto. But again, not a very fan friendly move. But we understand. Especially with Paramont involved.

105. MJ (the original) - November 20, 2012

@100. “You clearly have never met him, cause if you had you would see that he (and his brother Joe for that matter) are anything but aloof.”

Never said his personality was aloof — I was referring to an aloof attitude he had regarding taking major roles versus art films/plays. And of course, you seeing him at a convention or whatever — that means you really know the guy, of course. :-))

“MJ’s at it again, so let me get this straight cause Know one YOU know watches American Horror Story, means that the show isn’t hugely popular? That his career isnt doing really well?”

OK, you are right, I take it back. Upon further reflection, I do know of one person — LizardGirl, who has watched the show. In fact, here is her review of it: “I tried watching American Horror Story show. ((Shakes head)) I had to stop, it was weird–in a bad way, made me feel uncomfortable. I couldn’t understand what was going on, there was like three different plots happening. People getting killed or…were they already dead? Idk. But I started/stopped watching AHS long before Zach came into it. Still won’t watch that thing. Funny how something so graphic/ disturbing came from the creator of the songtastic Glee. 0_0 But it seems to have a cult following, which is good news for ZQ.”

“But again MJ and pals are the barometer on American popularity.”

Thanks man — I do try!

106. MJ (the original) - November 20, 2012

@102 “I know MJ can sometimes come across as a bit over the top with his comments. But wow, some of you here really like to jump on the guy a bit quickly..”

You think??? Seriously, thanks Mark for noting this. (and yes, of course I can be a bit over-the-top as well at times– agreed!)

Really, I can’t see what is so controversial here about my comments on this? But Tucker is hypersensitive to my posts, and continually trying to discredit me on this site. The good thing is that he is so obvious about it that everyone here knows his agenda.

107. MJ (the original) - November 20, 2012

YES!!! THANKS!!!

108. THX-1138 - November 20, 2012

boborci, I’ve got a question for you:

What are the long term plans for Star Trek? Are there any long term plans? Does your gut tell you that this is a three-and-out deal or do you think that it may be a prelude to getting back on TV? Are you planning on staying involved or do you think this may be a Transformers situation where you don’t contribute on the next movie? Do you have a multi-picture deal like the actors?

OK, so that was a lot of questions. Let’s see if you answer any of them.

109. TrekMadeMeWonder - November 20, 2012

MJ

Personally, I lost all respect for MJ’s posts when he labeled the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy over rated.

110. K-7 - November 20, 2012

#109. TrekMadeMeWonder,

I agree with your comment on M.J. Tucker’s statement on the LOTR trilogy of movies. I can get people just not liking fantasy or Tolkien, but saying those movies are overrated….that just strains all measures of common fairness, integrity and objectivity to do that. This is flat out dead on arrival for me; I will never be able to take another post of his seriously ever again.

111. Red Dead Ryan - November 20, 2012

This M.J. Tucker fellow sure has an axe to grind with the original MJ. I don’t know what his problem is. He always seems to stalk MJ relentlessly, ready to attack when MJ (the original) says something that irks him. That is why he came to this site, just to attack the better MJ. In other words, Tucker is a mindless, idiotic troll who vents his anger unfairly at others.

And then him saying how “The Lord Of The Rings” trilogy is overrated just proved once and for all how ignorant and asinine this guy is.

He has absolutely no credibility whatsoever.

112. Mad Man - November 20, 2012

I like ZQ. He campaigned hard for this role in the first Star Trek, then realized how 1-D it really was, and now is trying to do some real roles.

With all due respect to Mr. Nimoy…..wow, I forgot what I was gonna say. Too much wine. And my kids left the Disney Channel on. Good Luck Charlie is funny.

113. Mad Man - November 20, 2012

Whoa. RDR: he said LOTR is over-rated? WTF? What a maroon.

114. Rose (as in Keachick) - November 21, 2012

Just because someone does not rate a movie… as highly as others might, does not make that person a “maroon” or lacking in credibility. The fact that someone says that something is over-rated also does not mean that they think that thing is necessarily bad either. People rate whatevers differently depending on their understanding of the subject matter, perception, personal likes and dislikes etc. Moreoever they may change their rating of something, either up or down, depending on…?

A greater engagement of logical thought processes and kindness would not go amiss on this site.

115. Rose (as in Keachick) - November 21, 2012

Re: American Horror Story – the only way I can assess how successful, how well watched and liked in my own “neck of the woods” is due to the fact that the programme has not been suddenly removed from its timeslot because of “poor ratings” (very rude of the broadcasters to just remove a series half way through its screening…, but that’s another issue)

I would say that it is as successful a television series as any other. As far as I know, it has not been cancelled.

116. Rose (as in Keachick) - November 21, 2012

Chris Pine was not offered a $10M two picture deal by Paramount. Both Unstoppable and This Means War are 20th Century Fox productions. Jack Ryan (it is hoped that it will become a successful trilogy) is the only other film work Paramount has offered Chris Pine, apart from Star Trek, of course. Rise of the Guardians is a Dreamworks production, with Paramount/Viacom being the distributor. Apparently after next year all Dreamworks productions will be distributed by 20th Century Fox – have no idea what that’s about, btw.

On the Jack Ryan front, it is hoped that Tom Hardy will play Jack Ryan’s Marines mate, John Clarke (if this first movie is successful – fingers crossed!)…
Hey, why mess with what works?…Yeah!

117. Rose (as in Keachick) - November 21, 2012

Hollywood seems to thrive on rumour and ambiguity. Other people just find it annoying, disrespectful and stupid.

Quinto needs to clarify what he says to any reporter so that there can be no misunderstanding. It also seems that these so-called journalists/reporters are not behaving in a professional and honest manner, if someone’s quotes can be taken out of context…

UGH!

118. MJ (the original) - November 21, 2012

Thanks Keachick for the correction on the studio deal for Pine. My mistake.

Regarding Tucker saying LOTR movie trilogy is overated, I just feel so strongly that is JUST PLAIN WRONG that I just can’t help myself in responding to that. That is like saying fresh air is overated, or chocolate is overated — such statements, right or wrong, insult my senses and my perception of human integrity, truth and goodwill.

119. JANEWAYS GROWLER - November 21, 2012

Is there a thread on this whole website where MJ isn’t talking complete bollocks? I can’t find it.

120. THX-1138 - November 21, 2012

^^^Said the sock-puppet^^^

121. Rose (as in Keachick) - November 21, 2012

OK, MJ. Bear in mind that some people may actually hate chocolate and/or may be very allergic to it. Real bummer if you happen to fall into the latter category – ie like chocolate but always have nasty allergic reactions when you eat it.

My point is that not liking something, seeing it as over-rated, in the way that someone may regard chocolate, does not make that person lack (any) credibility. Another case in point, some of my family don’t seem to like or have any interest in any of Star Trek, but they certainly have genuine credibility and are definitely not “maroons”, “morons” [*or at least not complete "morons"...:)]

You get my drift…

* I am joking. One or two members of my (extended) family are actually VERY bright.

122. Sebastian S. - November 21, 2012

Reading some of the posts regarding Yelchin’s accent (which was, as he said in interviews, an homage to Koenig’s, not an authentic Russian accent)? Now that the ‘new classic’ characters are all lined up, can we just say that new Chekov has been studying with the ship’s computer in the interim between movies and now speaks a little less over the top than he did in the 2009 movie? That accent was a bit too much (homage or not).

I’ve known MANY Russians in my lifetime (I even speak a little), but neither Koenig nor Yelchin (who admittedly was paying dues to Koenig) were (or are) doing an accurate Russian accent. I realize that Yelchin was born in Russia, but he was raised in the US. Koenig has Lithuanian parents (not Russian) but again; he was born in Illinois. While I realize they both can do the accent authentically, I would like to hear new Chekov actually speak like a real Russian and not a caricature of one. Cold War is over; no need for 1960s stereotyping…. ;-)

Now as for Quinto?
I’m pretty sure he’d do a third ST movie (contractually he’s obligated to, at any rate). I think this ‘rumor’ is just out-of-context misquoting as he’d said in his tweet. I wouldn’t worry. But I can understand his desire as an actor to want to do more diverse roles down the road. I’m sure he won’t be pigeonholed as Spock (or Sylar) forever… he’s much too talented.

123. Rose (as in Keachick) - November 21, 2012

I look forward to STID’s Chekov sounding pretty much as I have heard Anton Yelchin speak in real life, perhaps with a SLIGHTLY more defined Russian accent, but not as over-the-top or as heavy as the so-called Russian accent that we heard in the first movie.

As I said way back, actors are always looking for different projects to get involved with – (blockbuster) movies, television, stage…Quinto has proven that he is capable of doing all three!

124. MiniBooger - November 21, 2012

I like Trek and I like LOTR. And I LOVE the fact that there will be a 9-minute trailer in front of The Hobbit! Can’t wait! Seeing the Enterprise on an IMAX screen will make me pee my pants for sure! Well, I’ll at least make lots of noises…

As far as ZQ’s Spock, he did well enough. It’s gotta be tough to take on an iconic character and still make it your own. Karl Urban was sheer perfection though. He sure has come a long way from his Ceasar character in Xena. I’d like to see the entire cast carry on for 3 or more movies. Well, maybe not Uhura. She irked me. The original Uhura was smart and sexy and knew it and used it.

All in all, I’m happy the franchise is continuing. It was looking rather bleak for a while there. Lens flares or not, I’ll be in my seat, popcorn and Coke in hand watching the Enterprise and her crew sail through space once again.

Now enough procrastinating. I have pies to make…

125. Red Dead Ryan - November 21, 2012

I’m sorry, but when Tucker said how LOTR was overrated, it really ticked me off. The facts prove that the LOTR trilogy is widely considered a classic film series. Some of the best made, ever. Right up there with the original “Star Wars” trilogy. They also made billions of dollars at the box office, and are critically acclaimed.

Tucker’s statements go against these facts.

Now, if he had just said that he wasn’t a fan of LOTR, then I wouldn’t have any issues. Not everyone is going to agree on any given thing.

But Tucker was speaking out of arrogance. That is why me, K-7 and MJ spoke up.

126. MJ (the original) - November 21, 2012

@121. Agreed, Keachick. And I was not the one that called Tucker a “maroon”. :-)

127. MJ (the original) - November 21, 2012

@125. Agreed, RDR!

128. DT - November 23, 2012

@96. VulcanFilmCritic – I have to agree with you about Quinto’s version of Spock. Granted, Nimoy had years to play with and perfect Spock, but I think ZQ was chosen more for his physical resemblance to LN, rather than any particular skill. I think ZQ is acceptable, but maybe he needs more time to find the right notes of the character. Even his *voice* doesn’t work for me…way too high and nasal. LN’s voice has such gravitas and tone to it.

129. MJ (the original) - November 25, 2012

@128. Speak for yourself, for me, he absolutely nailed the role.

130. Kenji - November 27, 2012

I thought ZQ was good, the voice was acknowledged with the bass “fascinating” on the squid ship. Really a respectful movie. And I also kinda thought Nimoy was a trifle broad.
