Iron Man 3 isn’t the only big Audi commercial you can see right now. Here’s a long spot featuring Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto playing gently fueding versions of themselves in a sales pitch for Audi’s new ride.
Sure, there’s an aspect to this ad that panders right to the Trek fanbase, and some of this spot is just silly. But it also has a few genuinely entertaining moments, as lens flares mar shots of Quinto and Nimoy sings ‘The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins‘ and throws out a little Star Trek II reference.

‘Star Trek 2:’ Zoe Saldana Comments, Leonard Nimoy Visiting Set; Zachary Quinto and Roberto Orci Talk ‘Changing’ Script
Posted on Monday, January 30th, 2012 by Germain Lussier
Just because J.J. Abrams and the crew of the Enterprise are currently hard at work filming the still-untitled sequel to 2009’s Star Trek, doesn’t mean there isn’t anything new to report. Several of the film’s cast and crew have been out and about giving hints about what’s going on behind closed doors. For example, Zoe Saldana was at the Sundance Film Festival promoting The Words (review here) and gave a few of info about the developing relationships between Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and Spock (Zachary Quinto), and Spock and her character Uhura.
Then there’s the original Spock, Leonard Nimoy, who revealed he’ll be visiting the set of the film soon, though everyone has previously said no original cast members will be in the film this time around. Finally, the new Spock, Quinto, turned some heads when he mentioned that the script for the film, written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof was changing on a daily basis. Orci took to the Internet to clear that up and hinted at the time frame of the sequel.
