Sad news from the entertainment world as actor Leonard Nimoy has passed away at the age of 83. Nimoy's son, Adam, says the actor died Friday morning in Los Angeles of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Nimoy played the very popular character of "Spock" in the Star Trek televison show and various Star Trek movies.

One of my favorite memories from Nimoy will be his epic ballet he made about Bilbo Baggins from the book the Hobbit. Besides the catchy song he does the video with the Spock ears on.
