Smile Nimoy Speaks! Says Karl Urban's Performance Moved Him to Tears

Leonard Nimoy, the honorary philosopher-king of the Star Trek franchise and, along with William Shatner, one of the most recognizable figures in science fiction today, has commented on the performances of the actors who now embody the bridge crew of the new Enterprise. Of special interest is his comment about the new Leonard "Bones" McCoy:

Quote:
When Karl Urban introduced himself as Leonard McCoy and shook hands with Chris Pine as Captain Kirk, I burst into tears. Karl's performance is so moving, touching and powerful that I think DeForest Kelley would be smiling, and maybe in tears as well.
Amazing stuff.

I just do it if someone wants to merge threads. I don't want to report such double threads, it would feel like an attack.

I for one also thought they did an excellent job of bringing out a personality in a few minutes that highlighted the character that developed over a course of 3 yrs and several movies.

I felt all the prefromances were great. The actors looked at the TOS actors way of doing them, then added their own takes on them.

Nimoy's words say it all.

Karl Urban WAS McCoy, probably the most spot on of all performances.
