Quinto Ready To Ask Original Spock To Return & Wil Wheaton Set For Eureka

Quinto Ready To Ask Original Spock To Return & Wil Wheaton Set For Eureka

Zachary Quinto will definitely be in the next iteration of J.J. Abrams's Star Trek. Not that that's news, he does have a contract.  But, new Spock admits that it may take some pleading and cajoling to get his original counterpart to sign up for part deux.  Quinto tells the New York Daily News, the it took a personal plea from J.J. Abrams to bring Leonard Nimoy out of retirement for Star Trek XI.

At the IFC Film Center premiere for "Breaking Upwards" Quinto remarked "I think I might have to ask him this time".

Quinto IS definitely awaiting the call from Mr. Abrams "Every time J.J. calls I pick up in a heartbeat," he laughed. "I assure you that. And when it's to tell me to come to work I'll be there."

In other Star Trek Alumn news, Wil Wheaton is set to co-star in a brand new episode of Syfy's Eureka set for a July 23rd showing.

According to a Syfy news release, "Wheaton plays the brilliant Dr. Isaac Parrish, head of the Non-Lethal Weapons Lab at Global Dynamics." The release further explains "Parrish's dry wit and superior attitude make him a thorn in Fargo's side -- with potentially disastrous consequences."

For those unfimiliar with the series here's a breif synopsis of the show.

As World War II came to a close with mushroom clouds over Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the impact that science and technology would have on the continued security of our world became catastrophically apparent. America nearly lost the race to build the atomic bomb; it could not risk such a close call again.

With the help of Albert Einstein and other trusted advisors, President Harry S. Truman commissioned a top-secret residential development in a remote area of the Pacific Northwest, one that would serve to protect and nurture America's most valuable intellectual resources. There our nation's greatest thinkers, the über-geniuses working on the next era of scientific achievement, would be able to live and work in a supportive environment.

The best architects and planners were commissioned to design a welcoming place for these superlative geniuses to reside, an area that would offer the best education for their children, the best healthcare, the best amenities and quality of life. A community was created to rival the most idyllic of America's small towns — with one major difference: this town would never appear on any maps. At least, none that haven't been classified "eyes only" by the Pentagon.

Thus, the town of Eureka was born. But for all its familiar, small-town trappings, things in this secret hamlet are anything but ordinary. The stereotype of the absent-minded professor exists for a reason, and most of the quantum leaps in science and technology during the past 50 years were produced by Eureka's elite researchers. Unfortunately, scientific exploration is rarely what one expects, and years of experiments gone awry have yielded some peculiar by-products.

From unrequited love to professional jealousy, from addiction to depression, the problems of Eureka's townsfolk stem from life's myriad of everyday challenges. But with the population's unique talents, troubled psyches and limitless resources, these small-town concerns have a way of becoming big-time problems. It is at that intersection, where human frailty and super-science collide, that Eureka begins…. (source
