1[on the new Star Trek movie] They already had Zach [Quinto, who plays Sylar] to play Spock so maybe it would've been tough to have multiple actors from the same show. I loved the film and they did a great job.
2Things that sizzle fast can also fizzle fast. Consistency is the trademark of greatness.
