I guess they couldn't come up with Nimoy's price for next year.
Well, I shouldn't say that. Nimoy is one half of history's most incredible bromance, even though Bill Shatner probably feels it is less of a bromance, more of a Lone Ranger and Tonto kind of thing, but still.
You could come up with a worse way to make a living than portraying a beloved film and television character for 45 years, and I hope it has been worth it for Nimoy. He is a class act and a gentleman.
