Leonard Nimoy, who gained legions of fans for his portrayal of Spock in the original Star Trek TV series, has passed away at the age of 83. The actor died earlier today at his home in the Bel-Air area of Los Angeles, with his wife Susan Bay Nimoy confirming that he passed away from end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Leonard Nimoy announced earlier this year that he had been diagnosed with the disease, which he attributed to several years of smoking, a habit which he had quit several decades ago. He was hospitalized earlier this week.Read More
Earlier this week, it was rumored that director Roberto Orci wants to reunite Old Kirk William Shatner and original Spock Leonard Nimoy in Star Trek 3. William Shatner has now stepped forward on Twitter to respond to these reports.
While the Star Trek 3 script is said to include a scene featuring William Shatner as the much older version of Captain Kirk, the legendary actor claims he knows nothing about that. He hasn't been contacted, and that Paramount, Roberto Orci and his team are just using him to create hype for the movie.Read More
William Shatner, who originated the role of Captain Kirk in the original Star Trek TV series, may finally get a chance to star in the rebooted theatrical franchise. A new report from Badass Digest claims that director Roberto Orci's script for Star Trek 3 includes a scene featuring both William Shatner's Captain Kirk and Leonard Nimoy's Spock.
No details were given about the scene, but if William Shatner signs on and Leonard Nimoy returns, it will be the first time they have shared the screen in the Star Trek canon since 1991's Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.Read More
Director J.J. Abrams has tried to remain as tight lipped about his upcoming sequel Star Trek 2 as is possible in this age of instant information. And he's succeeded for the most part. A couple of minor plot details have spilled forward, and Zachary Quinto's private team of paparazzi have done a fine job of offering up on set pics of Spock. But one aspect of the film seems to be caught in a constant wave of lies, and that is the presence of Spock Prime, played by the legendary Leonard Nimoy.
With shooting wrapped on the film, it seems unlikely that J.J. Abrams would call together a reshoot just for Spock Prime, since Leonard Nimoy has been reportedly on the set many times in the past few months. Earlier reports confirm that Spock Prime has already shot his scenes, and anything that Leonard Nimoy says at this point is just coy lies. White lies, if you will, to preserve some of the surprise and mystery behind the film.Read More

It was previously believed that no former cast members from the old Star Trek franchise would be appearing in director J.J. Abrams's upcoming sequel Star Trek 2. New images from the set have rendered this information null and void, as both Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto were spotted in their respective Spock outfits. Producer Roberto Orci tweeted these photos direct from the deck of the Starship Enterprise, on a sound stage at Paramount Studio, and he also included a photo of a Star Fleet janitor (actually one of the producers on the first movie), along with a pic of J.J. Abrams and Roberto Orci doing on-set rewrites. Check them all out below.
