Today is Zachary Quinto’s birthday. Star Trek’s new Spock is now 33 years old (the same age as Leonard Nimoy, when he shot "The Cage"). Tonight Zach will be having a birthday dinner with Mr. Nimoy. More details below, plus some fan tributes to Zach on his big day.
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.
Fans post tributes
Zach has some very dedicated fans and today they are showing their love. There is a special thread set up at tumblr.com for Zach’s birthday at happybirthdayzq.tumblr.com. Fans are posting their birthday wishes, and images, these tributes via shoes and cupcakes.

Those cupcakes truly do look like something out of TOS… – the evolution of culinary tastes, and a symbol of a sophisticated palate. It develops in stages, first there are the bright multicoloured cubes, followed by bright blue lobster chunks: congratulations! you’ve reached the liquorice black (with gunge green decals) spongy cupcake level!
Who am I kidding, I couldn’t produce cupcakes half as appetising. Well done that man for making them.
so …Happy Birthday Zach! Eat up!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ZACH! A birthday with Nimoy is the best thing ever! :D :D :D
Zach was a very cool con guest; mingled a lot with the fans throughout the day and didn’t just hide in his room, so kudos. Hope the birthday was a rockin’ one.
Live long and prosper. From one star voyager to another. \\//,
Happy (late) Birthday!
Please lose the thick glasses.
