Leonard Nimoy Talks About... Damned Near Everything

I'd listen to Leonard Nimoy list the ingredients of a candy bar. So, to listen to his talk for 15 minutes on all aspects of his career - not just Star Trek - is just gold. Some of the more interesting points are the often forgotten topic of how Star Wars' success is pretty much the reason Star Trek exists past the original series. He also touches on type casting (he's in favour of it), and how the original series was sometimes better at great moments, rather then greatness as a whole. Which, I think is true of the entire franchise.

And, yes, he does do a William Shatner impersonation. And it is terrible.

But I love the line "He went through cycles. Including death and resurrection, that's a pretty good cycle."

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
