Zachary Quinto saying good-bye to 'Star Trek'

Actor Zachary Quinto has had enough of the whole sci fi star thing. He plays bad guy Sylar on Heroes and was perfectly cast as Spock in last summer's blockbuster remake, Star Trek. However, he's ready to hang it up for a while and distance himself from the Star Trek franchise to pursue other roles. "I'm stepping away from Star Trek for at least two years — no movies, no conventions, no anything for a while, " he told

He says he hopes that his fanboy cheering section is willing to leave the sci fi world for a while to enjoy his other pursuits. "I want to invite them along with me on my journey, which is going to take them out of their comfort zone and into other areas and other styles of storytelling."

No word yet on what those other roles may be, however, as his page lists his next project as the Star Trek sequel set for release in 2012.
