Birthday dinner with Nimoy + Spock on Spock
While making the Star Trek film, Zachary Quinto and the original Spock, Leonard Nimoy developed a strong bond, that continues on. And to show how strong that bond is, Quinto will be spending his birthday evening with Mr. Nimoy. Leonard sent out a tweet this morning, saying "In NY. Meeting Zachary Quinto for dinner tonite. LLAP", to which Quinto replied "only the best birthday present ever!!! can’t wait sir."
This Newsweek "Spock on Spock" video from last year shows the his bond between the two.
