Zachary Quinto: Not Very Handy as Spock
Zachary Quinto apparently really needed a hand while filming the new big-screen Star Trek remake.
The New York Post reports that the Heroes actor—who portrays legendary vulcan Spock in the film—required a lot of help, and a little adhesive, to do Spock’s famous “live long and prosper” hand gesture.
Quinto “couldn’t train his fingers” to perform the salute, says a source. At first, Star Trek director J.J. Abrams tried fixing Quinto’s fingers into formation with a couple of rubber bands. When even that didn’t work, an exasperated Abrams “glued Zachary’s fingers together during filming.”
