Leonard Nimoy to Guest-Star on Fringe


Emmy Award nominee and sci-fi icon Leonard Nimoy will guest-star on an upcoming episode of “Fringe.” Nimoy will appear as pivotal person of interest William Bell as the critically acclaimed series approaches its dramatic and revealing first season finale Tuesday, May 12 (9:01-10:00 PM ET/PT) on Fox.

In next week’s all-new “Unleashed” episode, airing Tuesday, April 14 (9:01-10:00 PM ET/PT), animal rights activists ransack a laboratory and get more than they bargained for when one of the caged “animals” unleashes a ferocious appetite. With Charlie’s life on the line, Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv), Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson) and Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble) come face-to-face with the gnarly piece of fringe science.

Nimoy, best known as “Mr. Spock” aboard the USS Enterprise, will reprise his legendary commanding role in the highly anticipated Star Trek feature film directed by “Fringe” co-creator J.J. Abrams. Aside from myriad on-screen credits, Nimoy has directed numerous films, authored several books and released five music albums.

Created by J.J. Abrams & Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci, “Fringe” stars Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Lance Reddick, Kirk Acevedo, Blair Brown and Jasika Nicole. The series is produced by Bad Robot Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Abrams, Jeff Pinkner and Bryan Burk serve as executive producers, while Kurtzman and Orci are consulting producers.
