Yesterday, several sites were in an uproar over a quote Zachary Quinto made during an interview with Wired Game Life. The quote suggested he wouldn’t do anything Star Trek related for two years, which would interfere with the sequel’s release date of June 29th, 2012. Well, it was all a tempest in a teapot (and a fiddle-dee-dee and Bob’s your uncle), because io9 found this on Quinto’s blog:
obviously i will be a part of any upcoming films… reprising my role as spock. what i meant was that in the meantime i won’t be making any public appearances related to the franchise – or doing any more auxiliary projects pertaining to the trek universe. i will be focusing my efforts on other projects [Ed.- sex with guys] and preparing to shoot the next film [Ed. – please let it be a sex tape] – which will be released [Ed.- buspockke!] in june of 2012… two years from now. hence the no trek for two years remark. worry not trekkers. it was a misunderstanding of context. i am not spock. but i am spock. all at the same time.
By the way, I’m starting a donation drive to buy Quinto a shift key. Please direct all donations to my executive assistant, Miss Betsy Whiskercuddlebunch, Esq.
