The Voice of Nimoy

For anyone who grew up watching this series, this is good news - whether you play video games online or not:

Leonard Nimoy Reprises Legendary Role of 'Spock' in Star Trek Online

Looks like the 'ole Spock will be adding his voice to the new Massive Multiplayer Geekfest Online Role Playing Game (MMGORPG) based on the Star Trek universe.  With the success of the recent "reboot" movie, this might actually have a chance!

This gets me thinking about what a great gig this would be for your average trench-digging voice over actor.  Unlike a one-off video game, an online gaming world would require constant updates, right?  If your character is part of the main storyline, they would be constantly releasing upgrades or "advancing the story," all of which might require more voicing from the lucky VO.  Sounds good to me!  It's kind of like getting a TV series instead of a one-off TV movie.

Now, if everyone could just agree on fair rates for video game VO, we'd be all set :)
