Quinto promises 'bolder' Star Trek

Zachary Quinto has revealed that Star Trek 2 will "boldly" go where the first one didn't.

The 35-year-old actor will reprise his role as Spock in JJ Abram's second instalment, alongside Chris Pine, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg and Zoe Saldana.

"It was bigger. It was bolder, I think, than the first one, and that was pretty big and bold from my stand point. I'm really excited to see what they do with it," he told The Wrap.

The former Heroes star added: "I feel like, you know, my work is done on the movie right now and until we have to go and promote it, then my work remains done and I let JJ and his incredible team of people get in there and do the work that they need to do now."

Chris previously said the film would keep its comedic elements, but the crew of the Starship Enterprise would face an even greater threat.

"There's comedy, which I think JJ does a great job of, but, like the first one, there's some serious issues being dealt with. And I'd say the threat is even greater in this one," he told Total Film.

Benedict Cumberbatch, Noel Clarke, Anton Yelchin, John Cho and Alice Eve also appear in Star Trek 2, which opens in cinemas on May 2013.
