Is Zachary Quinto Planning To Quit The Spock Role in ‘Star Trek’?



In recent years Zachary Quinto has proven to be a pretty popular actor amongst genre fans, but a recent comment in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly could prove unpopular with fans of his portrayal of Mr. Spock in the J.J. Abrams movie reboot of Star Trek.

Toward the close of an interview, which the actor was doing to promote his new role in the popular FX series American Horror Story there are suggestions that Quinto could be looking to take his career in new directions after the summer release of next years Star Trek Into Darkness.

“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. This would not be the first time that Spock has died in Star Trek and it certainly wouldn’t be the first time that an actor has suggested that he’ll be dissociating himself from a role, but the above quote does make you ask if Spock dying in the new film may be linking the new films a little two closely with the original movies?

The above question may never be answered, but Quinto has since tweeted, “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…” Make of that what you will, but I get the distinct impression that we are being teased here.
