Agent: OK, Leonard, you’re in danger of being typecast. We need to break you from the grips of this Spock character.
Leonard Nimoy: What do you have in mind?
Leonard Nimoy: Great. I do fancy myself a pretty good singer. Maybe “My Way”? “Fly Me To the Moon”?
Agent: Too old, Leonard. We need something that speaks to the kids. What’s that series of books that’s all the rage with the kids? You know, the Lord of something or other?”
Leonard Nimoy: “Lord of the Rings”? Like, “The Hobbit”?
Agent: That’s it! I was just pitched a catchy tune about the main Hobbit cat, “Bilbo Baggins.”
Leonard Nimoy: [uneasy silence]
Agent: We’ll blow it out on a TV show. Dancin’ girls wearing Spock ears. It’ll kill.
Leonard Nimoy: I do like Tolkien…
