"Spock" turns down XXX role

Untitled Mr. Spock impersonator Roy Ives, 70, turned down an offer to star in a Swedish porn film titled "The Vulgar Vulcan."

Ives, of Birmingham, England, temporarily hung up his fake ears after making headlines for harassing his neighbor. He's ready to go back on the convention circuit but doing a dirty movie didn't jibe with his morals.

"I’m a Catholic and quite religious. It’s not a direction I want to go in," Ives told the Birmingham Mail.
