Star Trek Into Darkness actor Zachary Quinto is known for his role on NBC's Heroes as Sylar, the power-stealing brain-swiping serial killer.
The actor says that his days of playing serial killers are over, though, as he wants to move on.
However, that's not the only thing Zachary Quinto wants to move on with -- it's Spock.
In an interview with EW, Zachary Quinto also says he wants to move on from portraying Spock in the Star Trek movies.
"It’s like an era of association with certain roles – a specific part like Spock, or a kind of part, like Sylar — is coming to an end,” he told EW. “I think it’s safe to say this will be the last serial killer I’ll be playing for the foreseeable future.”
From those statements it can be suggested that Star Trek Into Darkness might be Quinto's last, as TrekWeb wonders; however, Quinto did state that a part like Spock is "coming to an end," could he mean there's one more movie left to do?
Previously, Star Trek Into Darkness writer and producer Damon Lindelof told TrekMovie that a third movie is not out of the question, and that they actually talked about it in the writing room.
So maybe Zachary Quinto as Spock will happen just one more time.
We can hope.
Star Trek Into Darkness has a May 17th, 2013 release date in 3D, is directed by J.J. Abrams and stars Chris Pine as Capt. James T. Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Spock, Karl Urban as Leonard "Bones" McCoy, Zoe Saldana as Nyota Uhura, Simon Pegg as Scotty, Anton Yelchin as Pavel Chekov, John Cho as Hikaru Sulu and Benedict Cumberbatch as an unnamed villain.
