Sylar is Spock?

07.10.2007
Even though Sylar on NBC's HEROES turned out to be one of the more disappointing characters in recent television memory, that remains no fault of actor Zachary Quinto (it's in the writing, people!), and squandered potential or not, Quinto has no doubt ensured himself a career boost after starring in one of television's most talked about shows, and the actor recently spoke out on one of his dream roles, saying: "I missed the ‘Superman Returns’ boat, so I’m angling for ‘Star Trek.’ People are constantly telling me I bear some resemblance to Leonard Nimoy."

Quinto is also aware of his co-star Greg Grunberg's close relationship with new STAR TREK director J.J. Abrams (he's had roles in ALIAS and LOST): "Maybe Sylar should tell Greg, ‘I promise I won’t kill you if you get me an audition,’ …We’ll see what happens." So there it is, everyone. Zachary Quinto wants a chance to play one of the most iconic sci-fi characters of all time. Can you say career suicide??? Not! Here's hoping for some major STAR TREK announcements once ComicCon roles around.

Maybe too late....

The Shat is saying that Nimoy will be playing Spock in the new Trek movie. Maybe the dude could do a younger version, or even like a Vulcan mini-me.

What are you guys smoking?

I think what the reviewer is getting at is that the ending of heroes this past season was very disappointing. The character of Sylar built up momentum and then just fizzed out at the end. There is no way in hell this guy is going to get the Spock role. From what I have seen from the Heroes he simply does not have the chops or presence to play an Icon.

He could play bizzaro superman in the superman movie.... Since the moment i saw him on Heros, I thought he looked like an evil Brandon Routh.

Give me a break.

I want to know the news, if I wanted an editorial, I'd read a blog. *grumble*

Sylar ... disappointing? Not sure where that's coming from. But either way, the real disappointment is that a studio thinks it's still a good idea to push yet another Star Trek movie on us. Can't this franchise just die already/

He should play Spock!

That's a damn good photoshop. He totally looks like Spock.

And speaking of Superman what role did he want to play? Cause when Sylar was still in his Gabriel Gray attire in Heroes, he beared a strong resemblance to the Clark Kent goof reporter look!

Go for it I say!
