    Default Heroes star Zachary Quinto stars as young Spock

    Zachary Quinto, who plays the villain Sylar in the American TV series Heroes, is hoping to live long and prosper in his new role as the young Spock.

    First pictures from the set of the highly anticipated Star Trek prequel have emerged, showing the actor wearing the trademark Vulcan ears while shooting in South Carolina.

    The first movie will have not one but two Mr. Spocks, with Leonard Nimoy, who portrayed the character in the legendary TV series and then later in the subsequent films, reprising his role to play an older version of the alien.

    The new film takes cues from Casino Royale and Batman Begins, by bringing sci-fi fans back to where it all began for Spock and James T. Kirk.

    Quinto is also know for his role as Adam Kaufman on 24 and Sasan on Tori Spelling's show So NoTORIous.

    Earlier this year, Nimoy said: "This is really going to be a great movie. And I don't say things like that lightly."

    "People have been asking me why I'm doing this movie, and I think the answer is obvious - we have a great director, a wonderful script, and a wonderful young actor playing Spock, so - it was logical."

    The project is being directed by JJ Abrams, who is the executive producer of Lost and 24.

    He has said: "This is a series I loved as a kid." But he acknowledged that he was "more of a Star Wars kid than a Star Trek kid."

    He said: "This matters so much to so many people."

    Winona Ryder is rumoured to be playing Amanda Grayson, mother of Mr. Spock, despite being just six years older that Quinto.
    Little known actor Chris Pine will play Kirk, British actor Simon Pegg is reported to be playing Scott, while Australian actor Eric Bana will take on the roleo of Nero.

    (responds to relatively old news with old meme, but both are worth a looksee)
    There will be times you might leap before you look
    There'll be times you'll like the cover and that's precisely why you'll love the book
    Do it anyway
