LOL: Leonard Nimoy Tweets Disappointment Over Mariah Carey For American Idol

This is probably our favourite "Mariah Carey for American Idol"-related tweet of the day and it comes from an unlikely source - Leonard Nimoy.

The actor best known for his portrayal of Mr Spock in the original Star Trek series tweeted his disappointment at Mariah's good news:

Anyone want to help us start a campaign to get Spock on Idol?

Leonard Nimoy is also one of the cast members of sci-fi show Fringe (which is very good) so we're including a gallery about fringes. Yeah, it's tenuous...
