10 Times We Totally Loved Leonard Nimoy On Screen! continued…

3) Dr. David Kibner, Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)

This was the remake of the classic 50s science fiction horror movie with Nimoy in the role of Dr. David Kibner. Kibner was an emotionless scientist, who was unperturbed by the replacement of hordes of people in San Francisco by their clones. Naturally, he was a clone himself, and thus his behavior was very odd. One of the memorable scenes from the movie is when he holds Donald Sutherland’s character and gives him the Nimoy stare. The lines he speaks, that explain the crux of their actions, is,”We came here from a dying world. We drift through the universe, from planet to planet, pushed on by the solar winds. We adapt, and we survive. The function of life is survival.”

4) Morris Meyerson, A Woman Called Golda(1982)

This role in the 1982 movie has him playing the husband of Golda Meir (Ingrid Bergman). The movie was inspired by the real story of a woman who became the Israeli Prime Minister. Nimoy was nominated for an Emmy for his role but, unfortunately, did not win it.
