The Star Trek star passed up two major superhero roles before landing Spock


Ethan Peck knows a thing or two about dressing up. When the actor came aboard the USS Discovery in the second season Star Trek: Discoveryhe became the third actor to play Mr. Spock (not counting the various baby Spocks seen in Star Trek III: The Quest for Spock and 2009 Star Trek). But before he boldly ventured into space, he almost took on a role even older and more prominent than the Federation’s most beloved Vulcan, the Guardian of Liberty.

Speaking to DragonCon attendees in Atlanta, Peck revealed that he was one of the “smaller few” that Kevin Feige considered as Captain America. Considering that the role went to the famous actor Chris Evans, and the most famous almost was Cap Office romantic lead John Krasinski, it may come as a surprise that Marvel looked to Peck. After all, before becoming Spock, Peck’s most notable role was in the TV series based on the movie 10 things i hate about you. But as the grandson of the legendary To kill a mockingbirdGregory Peck, the actor brought a pedigree that deserved attention.

In accordance with Direct, Peck nearly became another superhero very different from Captain America. “I was pretty close to the role of The Deep in Boys” Peck told the crowd, referring to the part that eventually went to Chace Crawford. And after some of the more shocking scenes in the season three episode, “Geragasm,” it’s hard to imagine anyone else in the role.

It’s hard to argue that things have gone badly for Peck. So successful were he and his colleague Anson Mount, who also debuted in Opening as the original captain of the Enterprise, Christopher Pike, into which they separated Star Trek: Brave New Worlds. Even with only one season missing, Brave new worlds has established itself as a fan favorite, thanks in large part to its blend of classics Hiking tricks and compelling characters. Peck’s restrained performance is part of that appeal, as his younger Spock struggles with emotions, less explosive than his immediate predecessor Zachary Quinto in JJ Abrams’ reboot, but not as solemn as creator Leonard Nimoy often is.
