We're sure this won't be Leonard Nimoy's last interview ever, but it may very well be his last interview about acting. The thespian formerly known as Spock has announced his retirement from acting after 60 years, and will cap his career with a swan song as mysterious genius William Bell in tonight's season finale of Fringe. He was only able to give us a few key details about the episode, including whether we'll see an Alternate Bell and whether he'll resolve his relationship with Walter Bishop, but he also weighed in on Star Trek and on his long, storied career over the course of his conference call. So until we start covering his erotic photography exhibitions, enjoy these last words from the man, and live long and prosper, Mr. Nimoy.

But, I mean, he's Leonard freaking Nimoy; he's delightful no matter what he's doing. His tight-lipped answers to the internet's questions after the jump!
Attention, attention everyone! Pushing Daisies news! About when ABC (bastards...) is airing the final episodes! Plus a little bit more, assuming you can actually read this through the tears I've brought on by mentioning Pushing Daisies' tragic, tragic cancellation. And we've also got a shout-out to President Obama, because his G-20 trip prevented him from interrupting your primetime television viewing this week and we know you missed him.
In July, 2007, the Biography Channel announced that William Shatner would be given his own talk show, and the world froze. Babies stopped crying, birds stopped flying and dogs stopped licking themselves. Then nothing happened for over a year. Cut to today: the Biography Channel announces that Shatner's Raw Nerve will air on August 19. Nobody notices.
