Default Leonard Nimoy, any love for this guy?

Always been a original Star Trek fan, loved the episode with that space cave thing that eats ships shaped like a giant horn.

Any love for Leonard Nimoy?

He served in '63 apparently.

It was '53, not '63, when he served in the Army for 2 years. He's a Boston local, and earned a Master's degree in education. I have far more respect for him than for most actors.

He was actually a terrific actor but got typecast pretty badly after Star Trek.
I really enjoyed him as William Bell on Fringe.

Reverse the equation; what would Star Trek be without Spock?

Well so did Shatner but he made a pretty good career out of it.

Cool stuff, didn't know that about him (Nimoy).

What is that thing he keeps looking into anyways? Why not put it on the big screen?

Great actor. Cool guy. LOVE the original Star Trek. Nimoy has another appearance in the new Trek movie, out now. It's a much smaller role than in the 2009 Trek movie, but, always good to see him reprise his role as Spock.

I liked him in Mission Impossible. He likes to draw nude, heavy, women, really. And him, so thin. Go figure.

From two of my favorite movies from back in the day....I'm sure most, if not all, are familiar with these two scenes. Always re-watchable

One of my favorite scenes from Star Trek IV:



Dr. Gillian Taylor: Do you guys like Italian?

Spock: No.
Kirk: Yes.
Spock: No.
Kirk: [at Spock]Yes.
Spock: No.

Kirk: Yes, I love Italian...
[looks at Spock]
Kirk: And so do you.
Spock: Yes.

That.... is acting!!!!!


Guy, glued points on top of his ears, stared at a flash light in a trapezoidal box, had paper posters hanging on the walls that were suppose to represent star charts and he was suppose to be from a planet that had sex once every 7 or 20 or 100 years (who knows?) That....







is an "actor".

Read a book years ago about making Star Trek the TV series....Nimoy usually rode a bike to work...film crew was forever hiding it from him...usually by attaching a cable n hoisting it up into the studio rafters...

Even if you are not a trekkie, or a nerd, or a geek - gotta love Spock.

I feel the same about Data - great actor, and supposed to be a funny SOB in real life.

Great actor, never gave me a reason to not like him. Grew up watching him on Star Trek on TV, then of course followed him and the rest of the Star Trek gang to the big screen.

Why are we discussing Nimoy like he is dead? Did he die?
