Spock-themed porn would have been highly illogical.
Instead of boldly going where surely many men have gone before, Spock impersonator Roy Ives has turned down a feature role in a Star Trek inspired Swedish porn film entitled The Vulgar Vulcan.
The 70 year old from Kitts Green, Birmingham in the U.K. bears an uncanny resemblance to Leonard Nimoy, the original Mr. Spock, from his well-groomed eyebrows to the timbre of his voice.
The offer to beam Ives up from obscurity could not have come at a better time. According to the Birmingham Mail, the look-alike pulled himself out of the public eye in 2005 after a harassment dispute. Ives was ordered to pay £250 for his rude comments against his neighbors.
The naughty Swedish enterprise would have seemed tempting to any other down-and-out impersonator, but Ives sadly had to turn it down. "I’m a Catholic and quite religious. It’s not a direction I want to go in," he said to the Birmingham Mail.
Now that the virtuous Vulcan has moved on from his would-be career in porn, he reportedly is putting his perfectly pointed ears back on and rejoining the sci-fi convention circuit. Ives is a member of the Susan Scott look-alike agency, which sends impersonators to events all over the U.K.
Live long and prosper, Mr. Spock. Trekkers will just have to see you in their dreams.
