Atari has announced that Zachary Quinto, the actor who played Spock in this year’s smash hit movie ‘Star Trek’, will lend his voice to the upcoming MMO, Star Trek Online.
Quinto shot to fame after starring in hit TV series ’24’ and, more recently, as Sylar in the acclaimed ‘Heroes’. He was universally praised for his role as Spock in the Star Trek film earlier this year, and now he is lined up to voice the tutorial of Star Trek Online, as well as voice the in-game Emergency Medical Hologram.
“Zachary Quinto has inspired both new and long-time Star Trek fans through his extraordinary portrayal of Spock in 2009’s Star Trek,” said Jim Wilson, president and CEO of Atari, Inc. “We are thrilled to have him participate in Star Trek Online as players get set to explore this whole new chapter of the beloved universe.”
“Being a part of the Star Trek universe has been an incredible experience for me,” said Zachary Quinto. “Extending that experience into the gaming space – and sharing it with gamers and trek enthusiasts around the world – makes it even more exciting.”
