No More Spock. Probably
Leonard Nimoy has told Reuters that he doubts he’ll appear in any more Star Trek films: "I think I was useful in this last film to help bridge between the original actors and this new cast.

Apparently the film is about a corporate hatchet man who wakes up one morning and finds he must follow the exact opposite of his normal routine. What’s the betting they're talking to Jim Carrey to star?
