Ethan Peck calls it “an incomparable honor” to be cast as the pointy-eared alien in TV show Star Trek: Discovery. Peck, grandson of Oscar-winner Gregory Peck, will join the show as Spock when it returns for its second season next year.
The 32-year-old celebrated by posting a photo of himself with Leonard Nimoy‘s (the original Spock) family giving Spock’s famous Vulcan salute.
Thanks to the Nimoy family for your open arms, warm welcome, smiling curiosity and support, for making me feel worthy, as I embrace and take into my heart the iconic half alien we know as Mr. Spock. It is an incomparable honor. 🖖🏼 #StarTrekDiscovery #LLAP pic.twitter.com/jEXG1T253Z
