Paul Forest got a piece of life-changing advice from a man dressed as Superman when he was in Las Vegas a few years ago.
That superhero told Forest that he looked just like Leonard Nimoy.
The Man of Steel wanted to know if Forest would be willing to dress as Spock, alongside Superman and others on Fremont Street, the famous neon-sign filled street in the heart of downtown Las Vegas.
“I tried it about three weeks later and the rest is history,” Forest told CBC News in a telephone interview from Toronto.
That led to his current full-time job as Spock, or Spock Vegas, as he is known to the public. He describes himself as a Spock lookalike and impersonator.
