Having thrilled and delighted crowds with his 'so similar it's weird' turn as Mr Spock in the recent Star Trek reboot, Heroes actor Zachary Quinto has announced his attention to keep starring in roles formerly made 'popular' by Leonard Nimoy.

Besides the next Star Trek film in the franchise, Quinto will turn his attention to Nimoy's other wealth of hit, including Dr. Richard Connought in a remake of 1980 TV movie Seizure: The Story of Kathy Morris, Commander Phil Kettenring in Assault on the Wayne, and up first, Mitch in a reboot of 1973's The Alpha Caper.

Quinto has already been wowing cast and crew on set with his amazing likeness to Nimoy in the original. "It's uncanny", a key grip said.
