Star Trek: Discovery: Ethan Peck to Play Spock

Ethan Peck will play the part that Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto have embodied before.

A veteran TV actor, Peck will play the iconic Starfleet officer Spock in season two of CBS All Access drama Star Trek: Discovery.

Executive producer Alex Kurtzman confirmed at Comic-Con in July that Spock, one of the best-loved characters in the “Star Trek” franchise and in all of science fiction, would appear in season two of “Discovery.”

Set to premiere in 2019, the new season, which takes place years before the original “Star Trek” television series, will feature an encounter between the USS Discovery and the USS Enterprise.

The child of a human mother and an alien father from the planet Vulcan, Spock serves aboard the Enterprise and is foster brother to Discovery’s second officer Michael Burnham.
