The Spock Actors Reference (DTM Blog Repost)

On July 28, 2007, the following was posted on the original DTM Blog;

For anyone remotely interested, the people behind the new Star Trek movie have revealed two members of its cast: Zackary Quintos (creepy young dude who's in Heroes) and Leonard Nimoy (creepy old guy who does photography of naked women... and he did some TV show back in the 60s) will both play the character of Spock. That's right; Spock is so big they need TWO people to play him. Well, it's better than the 1980s when they need SIX people to play him.

This info came from the OFFICIAL Star Trek site.

A couple days later, this was posted (588)

Contrary to an earlier blog post, you didn't need SIX actors to portray Spock back in the 1980s. Instead, you needed NINE.

1. Leonard Nimoy - the original Spock

2. Launched Photon Torpedo - dead Spock

3. Photon Torpedo Tube - rotting Spock's casket

4. Carl Steven - Spock at age 7

5. Vardia Potenza - Preteen Sexmate Spock at age 13

6. Stephen Manley - Teenage Spock at age 17

7. Joe W. Davis - Vulcan-Rage Spock at age 25

8. Director Nimoy - Nimoy-Spock hybrid

9. Baby - Baby Spock in Star Trek V flashback

So yeah, that's a lot of people/things/stupidities to play one Vulcan. Wonder how many actors Tuvok has:

1. Tim Russ - Tuvok

2. A shitload of stunt doubles.

Okay, so what about the Vulcan chick on Enterprise? Well, see Tuvok but swap Tim Russ for that other chick. Jolene whatsherface.

So yeah, Vulcans are hard for one person to handle...

Or maybe it's just me.

Good night.
