It's Spock! First Photo of Zach Quinto as Spock in Star Trek
This won't last very long until the folks at Paramount come rampaging through, so check it out as soon as possible! The first photo of Zachary Quinto as Spock on the set of J.J. Abrams' Star Trek has appeared online. It is currently filming in Southern California through March with an impressive cast. Quinto was first announced as Spock at Comic-Con in July. The photos are from long distance and slightly blurry, but Spock in those pointy Vulcan ears is certainly identifiable!
The photos (with a few others) come from the spies at JFX Online, so send some love their way. The scene taking place appears to be a Vulcan Council meeting in which Spock seems to be on trial.
Star Trek is directed by J.J. Abrams (Mission: Impossible III) and will be hitting theaters on May 8th, 2009. The film revolves around the Starfleet Academy days of the crew of the Starship Enterprise.

Looks like Spock to me. Also like the story that IESB broke this morning.

I must admit I was worried about this casting selection, but he does look a little like the way Spock looked in the Menagerie episodes ... kinda. I'll reserve judgement for the time being.

I like it. From this angle at least, he looks like a good younger Spock. I wonder if Kirk will look any good...

Great casting for Spock. What will the finished movie be like... (Hoping it doesn't suck.)

So far so good!Great to have Leonard Nimoy on board also! Please bring William Shatner into the movie. It'll be an awesome Star Trek with William Shatner!

Nooo! No more Shatner! Seeing his fatbody on Boston Legal while channel-surfing is enough. Kirk is dead.

"The film revolves around the Starfleet Academy days of the crew of the Starship Enterprise." How GAY!!! Come on, a crew is comprised of Officers and Enlisted that have a variety of back grounds and experiences. Don't tell me that the bridge crew graduated the Academy together. Writers: Go to a Navy Ship yard and interview the crew of a real ship, then mirror the Enterprise crew off of something that could actually happen. Kirk and his bridge crew should come from different ships and experiences, of course we already know Spock was already there, he worked under Pike for a while.
