Leonard Nimoy To Appear on Fringe [Update]

leonardnimoy-040809Update: Fox has issued a press release about this casting news.  I’ve included it after the jump.

Original article follows below.

After bringing Leonard Nimoy out of retirement for Star Trek, J.J. Abrams has signed Leonard Nimoy to join the cast of his Fox sci-fi drama Fringe.  According to Entertainment Weekly, Nimoy will play William Bell, Walter Bishop’s (John Noble) former lab partner-turned-millionaire founder of Massive Dynamic.

“It was a delight to work with Mr. Nimoy on Star Trek,” J.J. tells me. “The idea that he will play the mysterious, much-referenced William Bell is a thrill. I know I sound like a goofy fan boy, but I can’t help it: Leonard is an icon of the genre and such a wonderful actor. To have him come on board Fringe is a mind-blowing honor.”

Nimoy’s first appearance will be in the show’s season finale next month.  He’ll then return in the fall for an extended arc (which basically confirms that the show will be renewed).

Put simply: this is awesome news!  I’m already a fan of Fringe, but the idea of seeing Leonard Nimoy on the show has me incredibly excited.

Fringe airs Tuesday nights at 9:00pm ET on Fox. Continue reading Leonard Nimoy To Appear on Fringe [Update]
