Lenoard Nimoy announces his retirement from acting, which forecloses any notion that he might appear in the new franchise of the remade Star Trek series. He did so in classy style:
"I want to get off the stage. Also, I don't think it would be fair to Zachary Quinto," Nimoy told the newspaper. "He's a terrific actor, he looks the part, and it's time to give him some space. And I'm very flattered the character will continue."
