To Trekkie's delight, J.J. Abrams's "Star Trek" sequel is officially underway! However, Quinto's return to the arched browed role of Spock has one serious downside: awkward grooming.
"My eyebrows are shaved and I do my hair in a way that people don't know I actually have my horrible Spock hair," he told E! Online's Marc Malkin.
But on set -- his Spock brows in full glory -- Quinto said "it's been an incredible return to that world."
After the gangbuster response to Abrams's 2009 "Star Trek" -- somehow taking the franchise into the uncharted quadrant of cool -- audiences have been eagerly awaiting some precious news about the sequel.
So you'll be happy to know that even its cast was left in the dark until just a month before shooting.
"It was the middle of December and finally I had to be like, 'We need to read the script,'" Quinto said. "They waited a pretty long time, but that's because they were working on it. There was a writer's strike the first time so they weren't able to let the script evolve. Now it's really changing...on a regular basis."
But, for the skeptical Trekkies out there, Quinto did say that the newbies -- Benedict Cumberbatch, Peter Weller and Alice Eve -- "have folded in so beautifully and brought a whole new level of intelligence and sensitivity."
