Today is Leonard Nimoy’s 81rst Birthday!!!! 81 years old and still sexy. For those of you who have been living under a rock since the dawn of man: Leonard Nimoy is the wonderful actor who brought to life the character of Spock in Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek. This year he’ll be appearing in the more modern hit television series: The Big Bang Theory.
