Zachary Quinto (Star Trek’s new Spock) has been doing some more interviews promoting the premiere for the second season of Heroes (Tonight NBC 9pm). Not much about Trek, but he did tell the New York Post:
The experience that I expect to have with Star Trek and, hopefully, many other films down the line is that you really get to immerse yourself more fully and take a lot more time in the exploration of the characters in the film, since the shooting structure is so different-the time you have to spend on each scene, and so on. What you lack in longevity you more than make up for in depth of exploration.
Quinto also told the paper that Star Trek was worth risking his Heroes role for:
I think anytime you leave one project to work on another, you have to acknowledge the risk. Things can evolve past the capacity to include you. Star Trek is a worthy thing to make that risk for. I’m really excited, but I also have faith in the creators’ [of Heroes] faith in me, and hopefully that will bring me back to the show when I’m done with this.
