Jeremiah Murphy wants to be Spock, so much so that he has created iwanttobespock.com. He has created 3 audition tapes for JJ Abrams…the third of which has a shout out to a certain website. I will leave it up to you to decide how serious he is.
The New York based actor actually does have some acting experience on TV, stage indy film and with the Manhattan Comedy Collective (he even has an IMDB page). Murphy says that he has always been a big fan of Star Trek and chose Spock because ‘he is the fun one.’ TrekMovie.com had a moment to speak to Mr. Murphy who about his plans. He did say that he is not willing to shave his beard but feels that he represents the ‘younger more experimental’ Spock. He notes that compared to other actors auditioning for the role his work shows that he is ‘more ready’ for the role plus he notes that he has his own ears and more importantly says "I’m cheap." Murphy plans to continue to make videos including plans for ‘Spock Jokes’ and a ‘ask a ninja’ style answering emails segment. TrekMovie.com appreciates the shout out, but at this time we cannot endorse Murphy’s candidacy. However, he has put in a lot of effort so how about Dead Red Shirt #6?
