I think it will be the perfect role for him! I’m not a Trekkie but I know a lot of people are excited about this movie. It opens in May 09. Here is an interview MTV did with him about his upcoming role.
SAN DIEGO — At Comic-Con there are stars, there are favorites, and then there are kings. These days, names like Bruce Campbell, William Shatner and Stan Lee are moving over to make room for a new god among geeks: 31-year-old Zachary Quinto.
We caught up with the brain-swiping “Heroes” baddie on top of the new Hard Rock Hotel, where he sat back in a brimmed hat and sunglasses, looking out at the swarms of people who had attended a panel for his hit show moments before. Thanks to the series and his role in next May’s “Star Trek” reboot, Quinto is a fast-rising genre favorite. But he was nonetheless excited when we gave him a first look at his new Spock movie poster and was eager to talk to us about pointy ears, rules for dealing with nerds and the “Trek” sequels to come.
