Zachary Quinto is THIS CLOSE to Being Spock in Star Trek 11

It looks like our favorite bad guy is not only up for the part of a young Spock in J.J. Abrams’ upcoming “Star Trek 11″ movie after all, but that he’s THIS CLOSE, according to reports, from landing the part. The news comes from EOnline, who broke the news of the possibility of Quinto landing the much-coveted role, and then confirming that he was close to nailing it a little bit later. They said this:

Zachary Quinto’s chances of being Spock in the upcoming Star Trek film are looking extremely good. I hear the deal is about to close. Best. Casting. Ever.

Update: Jen here. Following up on K.G.’s brilliant scoop, I checked with a source who confirms that the Zachary Quinto-as-Spock contract is with the business affairs team at Paramount. Business affairs is generally considered the last stop on the deal-negotiation train. The deal only awaits sign-off from outside counsel. Squee.

Wow. Zachary Quinto as Spock. So I guess Greg Grunberg put in a good word for him with J.J. Abrams after all!

If he does land the role, I wonder how this will affect Sylar’s return to Season 2, if at all…?
