If you beam him, he will go. Or something like that.

Leonard Nimoy, who originated the role of Mr. Spock on the TV version of "Star Trek," would not turn down the chance to play Spock again in a sequel to the big-screen hit from this summer, according to Reuters.

Still, he doesn’t expect to get such a casting call from J.J. Abrams, the film’s writer-director.

"They have a wonderful new cast in place… and I don’t see why they would need me in this next film. But if they called me, I would be happy to have a conversation about it," Nimoy said in a conference call with reporters promoting his role on the Abrams-created Fox series "Fringe."
