Re: *Spock/Zachary Quinto Appreciation Zone*

S'funny how Quinto's voice sounds so much more resonant than everyone else's around him, except when he's in the same scene as Nimoy, when he sounds like a chipmunk. But I guess that standard is too high. At least he doesn't sound like Pine, who is downright squeaky.

Re: *Spock/Zachary Quinto Appreciation Zone*

^ I like that one best out of the two also, GhostFaceSaint.

You could always crop this one, though:



I just found this when looking through screencaps. Just look at that expression! I think this is after Pike told Spock to act as captain in his absence. Spock is not amused, but I definitely am!

Nah, those are the early shot when the script called for Spock to have gone through the reverse Kolinar discipline, where he shows traits like, a sense of humor, irritability, and whistling at the ladies.

It could be worse. Imagine if he somehow found himself in a scene with Nimoy, George Takei, Patrick Stewart, Avery Brooks, Marc Alaimo and Tony Todd having a contest in reciting famous Shakespearean speeches.

Re: *Spock/Zachary Quinto Appreciation Zone*

Looks like ZQ might have a new movie lined up:

Quinto is circling an independent Canadian romantic comedy-drama called Whirligig, about a guy who becomes friends with the adopted son of the older lady he’s trying, very, very hard, to seduce. Awkward…
If the movie goes ahead, and THR is warning that no deal is yet in place and Quinto is keeping his options open, as you might expect from a green-blooded, analytical Vulcan, it will be an unusual choice for the 32 year-old actor. But, perhaps, a refreshing one – instead of heading for the nearest tentpole, he’s choosing something a little quieter and low-key, maybe in the hope that the obvious comparisons to The Graduate will bear out in more ways than one. Could Quinto be the new Dustin Hoffman?

No, he could not. He's so much better-looking than Hoffman ever was. Also, and I know this is blasphemous, but I have long thought The Graduate to be a terribly overrated film.

Very true, he's also about a foot taller. But I can kind of see what they meant. The thing is Hollywood seems to have a new favourite leading man every other month (does anyone want to take bets on Sam Worthington still making blockbusters in 20 years time?) but, on the whole, its those actors who are prepared to take on the more character based roles who stick around long term. As career paths go something similar to Hoffman's would not be a bad thing at all. And I think most actors would be flattered for such a comparison to be made.

For the record I think taking on a role such as this would be a smart move, he needs to do something that is completely atypical to the public perception of him. He's a very good actor and if he can avoid typecasting and land interesting roles then I think he can become an even better one.

I agree with everything you said, Etched. Branching out is always a good idea. I was just saying the first thing that came to my mind. I have never understood why The Graduate is supposed to be such a great film. I hope Quinto's forays into the less-than-mainstream are a bit more entertaining.

Re: *Spock/Zachary Quinto Appreciation Zone*

Oh snap! Family drama (why does everyone have to be ill at once? One at a time, people) has distracted me to the point that I forgot the DVD comes out tomorrow! Yay, a little beam of sunshine


Love the avatar CD, you lovely lady you!

Re: *Spock/Zachary Quinto Appreciation Zone*

Now that the DVD is out, any fun new pictures of Spock/ZQ? I am picking up my copy tomorrow. I'm kind of blue and need some ZQ to perk me back up

I just bought the movie on Tuesday and have already watched it 4 times! I have the movie on my iphone as well. I tell you I smile about everytime he comes on screen of the movie in the first scene he appears! It also reminds me when I ment him at the convetion. I also smile everytime I see a picture of him. He just makes my day!
