Zachary Quinto Has Big Plans

Using the cache of his upped profile after his turn as Mr. Spock in Star Trek, Zachary Quinto is lining up a producing and acting gig. Within the next several weeks, Quinto hopes to be producing and starring in an as-yet-untitled film about the world financial meltdown.

“We’ll be shooting in New York,” he says. “I would play a sort of young financial analyst who comes from a rocket science background and applies that knowledge to the financial world.

“It’s a significantly different character than either Spock or (Heroes’) Sylar,” he says. “It has elements of Glengarry Glen Ross.”

I’m intrigued. I’m looking forward to see the dog loving Zachary in a non-science-fiction role for a change.
