Nimoy, who has garnered universal acclaim for his iconic role as Spock in the Star Trek series, has long battled this particular typecasting. His first autobiography was entitle I Am Not Spock, published in 1975. Twenty years later, he released I Am Spock, saying he had come to grips with his numerous times in the role and acceptance of what it means to his life.

Leonard Nimoy is also an accomplished director, having directed two of the Star Trek films, III and IV and the comedy hit Three Men and a Baby starring Ted Danson, Tom Selleck and Steve Guttenberg. He has also directed several episodes of various TV series, including T.J. Hooker, starring his long time colleague on Star Trek, William Shatner.
