William Bell: John Lennon of the Lab

And yes, since the showrunners called Bell-Bishop "Lennon and McCartney," he would be the John Lennon to Walter's Paul McCartney. Despite the fact that it was Walter, not Belly, who bedded Yoko. (As far as we know, Walter had her all to himself.)
I do not, for one minute, believe Belly is dead.
And here's another opinion: I've heard some people saying that Zack Quinto should play young William Bell. Wrong. Quinto does a great Spock impersonation, but Leonard Nimoy did not play William Bell like Mr. Spock. Therefore, Quinto wouldn't be a great choice. (Who would be?)

I agree - I guess Quinto comes to mind for me strictly from the physical perspective. I haven't seen him in anything but ST and the PB audition tape, so i have no idea how he acts.
I also agree that I don't think Bell is dead. Remember, he tried to give Peter a cup of tea as well. Who KNOWS how far and wide he scattered his SOOOUUUULLLL Magnets?

I thought the Observers were Fringe's trump-card mystery, but really, William Bell is the personality that hovers over the Fringe world, whether he's played in the flesh by Leonard Nimoy, or just as an absent character (either dead, presumed dead, or "in Europe seeking funding.")
