If nothing else works in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek movie, at least one thing will: Zachary Quinto as Spock.

I’m by no means a Photoshop expert, but I took the half-face image of Zack Quinto from the recently seen Star Trek poster and tweaked it until I had a reasonable version of a full-front picture of him as Spock – and it came out pretty good if I do say so myself.

Looking at the image above comparing Quinto to Leonard Nimoy as Mr. Spock I have to say that Abrams and crew could not have come up with a better actor to play the role. Combine that with the way that Quinto comes across low key and even both on screen and in person and you’ve got a winner for our favorite Vulcan.

Here’s a larger version of the picture:

So what do you think? Is this guy Spock or what?

Star Trek opens on May 8, 2009.
