Leonard Nimoy: from Spock to Transformer

Actor Leonard Nimoy may have given up playing Spock forever on the big or small screen, and he may retire from acting altogether after Fringe, but in the meanwhile the actor will be providing his voice for the character of Zeta Prime in the upcoming game Transformers: War for Cybertron.

Zeta Prime is the predecessor of Optimus Prime, leader of the autobots, still voiced by Peter Cullen (in both the series and the new movies).

Leonard Nimoy also voiced a Decepticon called Galvatron in 1986's Transformers: The movie. Nimoy also provided some voice work as Spock Prime for the recently released Star Trek Online MMORPG game.

Transformers: War for Cybertron
will be released June 22 for PS3, Wii, XBox 360 and PC
