After finishing an eight-month stint playing a gay man in the New York stage revival of Angels in America, “Star Trek” star Zachary Quinto has finally copped to being gay in real life. People Magazine says:
In a new interview, Quinto calls his work in the off-Broadway play the “most challenging thing I’ve ever done as an actor, and the most rewarding.”
“At the same time,” he adds, “as a gay man, it made me feel like there’s still so much work to be done, and there’s still so many things that need to be looked at and addressed.”
The star of Star Trek and TV’s Heroes had long refused to comment about his sexuality, though he has been an outspoken supporter of bully victims and has played a number of gay roles, including on Tori Spelling’s TV show So NoTORIous and on the new FX series American Horror Story.
How could you not know this dude is gay? Just look at his face. What’s more surprising is the crazy eyes he’s got going on. If you woke up in the middle of the night and someone was standing over you staring at you with those things that you’d piss the damn bed. It’s hard to tell whether he’s about to filet you like a flounder and make a suit out of your skin or teach you how to make the perfect meringue.
