Leonard Nimoy – better known to many worldwide as the original Spock in Star Trek TOS – is going to unretire.
Leonard Nimoy has appeared in Bruno Mars’ latest music video for “The Lazy Song (Official Alternate Version)”. There already was another music video released but Elektra Records also came up with this one. The song from the album Doo-Wops & Hooligans was released as a single last February 2001. Over a million digital copies alone were sold.
You really have to see this, it’s for real. And there’s a cameo or two by Trek actors too so this can count as a new “sci-fi music video” 🙂 .
Leonard Nimoy explained to the TrekMovie website how he got involved in this video.
I met Aaron Bay-Schuck in 1985 when I was preparing to direct St IV. He was 4-1/2 years old. I married his mother in 1989. Aaron is the Atlantic Records exec who signed Bruno Mars to the label.
Not too long ago, Nimoy also un-retired for the part of William Bell in the show Fringe (voice only, ok, for the episode Lysergic Acid Diethylamide) and he also will be heard as Sentinel Prime in the third Transformers movie this summer (Dark of the Moon).
Here’s the video with no further ado!

A few days ago I posted on the Avengers movie.
Now the news is out via a tweet by Mark Ruffalo that the Avengers movie will not be shot in 3D, unlike the Thor and Captain America movies which were shot in 3D.
What do we know about the bad guys in the upcoming Avengers movie in production..
The main bad guys are Loki (as seen in the Thor movie – since he gets hold of the Cosmic Cube at the end of that movie), and of course the green-skinned reptilian alien Skrulls.
But there’s yet another big villain to come in this movie!
SPOILERS as River Song would say..

News has come out that the actor Shia LaBeouf from the Transformers Movie Franchise is quitting the franchise, together with Director Michael Bay, after the third movie.
He mentioned the possibility of a reboot.
This was discussed on MTV. Meanwhile in the latest sequel to 2009’s Transformers Revenge of the Fallen, the Autobots are back. Lead by Optimus Prime, the Autobots face the Decepticons once more, during a dangerous US-Russia space race. Once more Sam Witwicky has to help his robot friends.
LaBeouf said “I’m not coming back to do another one”, giving rise to the possiblity of either a new actor replacing him or a full reboot for the fourth movie (which Paramount is interested in).
