Actor Zachary Quinto cover the April 2013 issue of Manhattan magazine. In the issue, Zachary discusses his role in Star Trek: Into Darkness (I cannot wait for this movie!), insists there are no plans for him to join American Horror Story season 3, and goes on the record saying he’d love to do a romantic comedy soon.
The shot was done at Dream Downtown in NYC and Zachary is wearing Dior Homme (and looking extra handsome) throughout, and he was photographed by David Needleman. Here are some highlights from the interview.
On what he plans to do next:
“I’d love to go on the record and say I’d love to do a romantic comedy,” he says. “I’m always looking for opportunities… when I’m focused on the work I’m doing in the moment, and when I’m grateful for it, more comes to me.”

Zoe Saldana on Zachary:
Quinto’s Star Trek co-star Saldana agrees that his best work comes when he takes on complex characters. “What makes Zach unique as an actor is his confidence,” she says. “Zach isn’t afraid to play a villain, or a psychopath, or a ghost. Usually, these are the characters that scare actors because of the complexities they possess, that sort of layered psychological demeanor… But Zach approaches these characters with so much ease that you feel inspired when you work with him. He’s so talented, supercommitted to his craft… and funny as hell.”
On his Star Trek co-stars:
“We were in Northern California for the last 10 days of the shoot at this massive, industrial government space. Me, Pine, Benedict and Pegg all drove into San Francisco and had a raucous evening until the wee hours,” Quinto says enthusiastically. “All of us had some really amazing experiences outside of those first films. I really genuinely love to work with them, to be with them and J.J.”
On American Horror Story:
Quinto insists there are no plans for him to join American Horror Story for its third season, widely speculated to tackle witchcraft across the country, in various time periods. “That’s the nature of the show,” he explains. “It’s OK to disappear and then show up again,” he says of the anthology.
The April 2013 issue of Manhattan magazine featuring Zachary Quinto is on newsstands tomorrow.
