star trek mccoy

I still crush on McCoy when I bother to think about it.

Star Trek: my first fandom.
Doctor McCoy: my first fandom crush.
Star Trek: the latest movie trailer.

It's obviously a serious re-write of the previous series canon, and more things blow up than ever blew up before. Zachary Quinto is shockingly Nimoy-ish, though of course his voice is all wrong. It's not yet clear to me it'll be good, but it is clear that I'll be parked in a seat on opening night or very soon thereafter.

How about you?
McCoy was always too much like one of my uncles. I liked Chekhov best. Kirk annoyed the hell out of me as a little girl, but I grew to like his character enough that I already think I'm going to hate the new version. There's just something that tweaks wrong about that particular actor.

But it's Trek. I'll be there.
Pine isn't quite right in affect, somehow, yeah. I'm willing to give him and the movie a shot, though. Because as you say, it's Trek.
Pine has that terrible Teenage Actor affect, something that's at home in an American Pie movie, but not anywhere else. This is like Keanu Reeves appearing in Much Ado About Nothing.

Zach Quinto on the other hand has a thoroughly mature approach to voice and affect -- yes, there is that slight wrongness of his voice as compared to Nimoy's, but his look and mannerisms more than make up for it, not to mention his almost frightening intensity. I have confidence in his ability to take this role and completely erase Sylar from our minds.
