Next weekend, J.J. Abrams’s rebooted Star Trek beams into theaters to sear your corneas and un-sully the reputation of geeky, space-based megafranchises. Much has been made of Trek’s sexy new cast, and nobody’s getting more attention than new Spock Zachary Quinto. Two nights ago, we ran into him at the after-party for the Broadway revival of Eugene O’Neill’s Desire Under the Elms, starring Quinto’s college buddy Pablo Schreiber (brother of Liev). Quinto answered our questions about the movie, then dropped some Vulcan wisdom on us that just might save your life.
The Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” is played in the movie. Is that really something a member of Starfleet would listen to?
Oh yeah. Spock just loves the Beastie Boys. I think Kirk loves them, too.
