Leonard Nimoy plans to live long and prosper -- in retirement.

The longtime "Star Trek" actor, who originated the iconic role of Mr. Spock in the '60s TV series and the film franchise that followed, told The Toronto Sun he wants to "get off the stage."


He'll continue to focus on his photography. I think we will all wish him the best.

Before he goes, he needs to do a Priceline ad with Shatner. Just one. icon_mrgreen.gif

Seriously, I think he's earned it. It'd be sad to see him leave the convention circuit if/when he does, but...at some point, you just have to know when to fade gracefully into the background.

He's a truly amazing, classy guy, and his portrayal of Spock is just incomparable. Spock was one of my biggest heroes, growing up. I wish he weren't retiring, but it's his life to live and his choice what he feels is best to do. The biggest gain for him in retirement is probably regaining a little privacy, and the chance to do just what he wants. Live long and prosper, sir.

Grow old and fade away gracefully? Heck no. Live to the utmost, as long as possible, and then explore the brave new world beyond.

Awesome man, but lets remember he's RETIRING not dead. icon_smile.gif

Besides, isn't he an expert at life after death? icon_smile.gif icon_mytwocents.gif

Glad I met him and got a photo with him before he removed himself from the public eye.

He's got one engagement in Calgary this weekend, and that may be the last (other than his trip to Vulcan after that). My sister is hoping to meet him at the convention on Sunday.

If he's retiring, we'd better get his jar ready for the Head Museum of New New York!
