Zachary Quinto, the "new" Spock, narrated a new Omaze video for the last week of the cast's charity campaign, with the winner landing a role as an extra in "Beyond." The lucky fan will be randomly chosen from the pool of donors, and funds will be split among nine organizations chosen by cast members, including St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.
Leonard Nimoy was "passionate about" St. Jude's, Zachary noted in the tribute video, which honors the late star and asks for donations in his name:
Fans are asked to visit Omaze.com/StarTrek to donate and get a chance to win a walk-on role in "Star Trek Beyond," which stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Anton Yelchin, Simon Pegg, John Cho, and Idris Elba and is scheduled for release on July 8, 2016.
Through his legendary portrayal of Spock, he influenced countless scientists and artists, myself and the rest of the cast included. It was an honor and a privilege to know him and to call him a friend. Leonard's love for the human spirit showed in everything he did."
Here's the video:
Leonard Nimoy died in February at age 83. His son is working on a documentary about his life, called "For the Love of Spock."
