Alex Kurtzman, Exec. Producer for ‘Star Trek: Discovery‘ spoke of of the casting process for Spock last month at Comic-Con when he announced that the character would be appearing on the show in 2019. At the time he said they wanted “an actor who would, like [Leonard Nimoy & Zachary Quinto], effortlessly embody Spock’s greatest qualities, beyond obvious logic: empathy, intuition, compassion, confusion, and yearning.” The series takes place a decade before the original series so it will be interesting to see what new layers Peck can bring to the character.
