Is Leonard Nemoy Going to Be in 'Star Trek 2'?

The actor says he is 'talking' with J.J. Abrams about returning to his iconic role as Spock in the continuing big screen franchise.

Director J.J. Abrams' is in the final days of principle photography on Star Trek 2, and it's been widely reported that none of the original Star Trek cast members would be appearing in this sequel. That includes Leonard Nimoy, who played a substantial role in 2009's Star Trek reboot.

Now, though, an off-the-cuff remark has fans speculating that the actor, who turned Vulcan Spock into a sci-fi icon, may actually make an appearance in this upcoming sequel, slated for release in 2013.

On Thursday, Leonard Nimoy was on scene to watch the arrival of experimental NASA shuttle The Enterprise in New York City, where he was interviewed by CNN. The anchor asked if he would be appearing in another Star Trek movie. This was his response.

"Uhh...We're talking. We're talking."


Many fans who've heard this statement speculate that it is far too early for J.J. Abrams to be talking about Star Trek 3. Though, you never know. A cameo is still possible for Star Trek 2, which has most Trekkers and Trekkies excited. Though retired from acting, Leonard Nimoy is next scheduled to return to Fringe sometime before the show ends next year.

Star Trek Into Darkness was released May 17th, 2013 and stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Benedict Cumberbatch, Anton Yelchin. The film is directed by J.J. Abrams.

    @pbcritical He served as a bridge between old and new fans, also allowing the new universe to be a part of canon.

    I personally think he shouldn't have been in the first one either. I understand he was important to the plot but the film should have been written without him in mind. I see the film as a reboot and having an old Spock come into while there is still a young one around just seems off. The films should stand on there own without needing too much support from the originals. Him and other cast members in a small cameo role makes sense but nothing more than that.

    I love how Nimoy keeps saying he's retired, but he keeps showing up. That guy is so boss.

    His part in the first film was perfect. I feel like anything further is just overkill. I don't know. If he does have a cameo, it would have to be at the beginning of the film. But, we'll see when the film comes out. Either way, I think this film is gonna be good.
