Winona rydes Trek

If the earlier news that Bruce Greenwood was cast to play Capt. Pike in J.J. Abrams STAR TREK redux wasnt enough to fulfill your STAR TREK casting news addiction, well then get a load of this. Winona Ryder is climbing aboard the Starship Enterprise (well, not really) to play the Vulcan mother of Spock (Zachary Quinto). Isnt she just a little too young for that role? Shes only six years older than Quinto in real life. Is there some sort of STAR TREK folklore Im missing here? Do Vulcans give birth as infants? I shouldnt be complaining though, since my lifelong dream to see Winona Ryder with pointy ears will finally be realized. That time she dressed as an elf for Halloween doesnt really count, since I couldnt go out that night (pneumonia).
Extra Tidbit: In other TREK casting news, Rachel Nichols (P2) was just cast in the film as well. You can check out a recent Joblo.com interview with her HERE.

Yes - as ChrisWalken stated - originally Spock's mother was a human. I don't know if this is a mistake, or a purposeful change to the storyline, though. Heck, it could be mis-information.

"Isn't she too young?"
Well, Vulcans age slower than humans. So if she IS a Vulcan, then she'll look younger than she is.

"Wasn't Connery 4 years older than Ford?"
They are 12 years apart.

She is not too young.

Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't Sean Connery 4 years older than Harrison Ford, yet he still played Indy's father in Last Crusade. You never know, this could work wonderfully.

Interest Peaking

Never being that interested in Star Trek and always being a Star Wars fan I can't help but to be more and more intrigued by this flick. With JJ Abrams at the helm and the great casting going on this Star Wars geek might be trading in his lightsaber for a triquater this coming year.

"logical"

I get it....very clever.

Maybe all the heroin she's done will make her seem to be so much older than she is?

You are correct. Spock's mother is 100% human and is named Amanda Grayson.
Spock has no sister, so perhaps she is a Vulcan love interest.
It certainly would not be logical to rewrite Star Trek history and make Spocks mother a Vulcan.

Correct me if I'm wrong

But isn't Spock's mum supposed to be human? I'm no trekkie but I recall someone saying that Spock has some human features because his mum was human (and his dad is vulcan).
