Watch Zach interview on Today Show yesterday:
The website MatchesFashion.com published on their Paris Fashion Week issue an interview with Zach about carreer and fashion style, accompanied with a beautiful photoshoot by Arno Frugier.
‘It feels good,’ says Zachary Quinto, ‘to create different chapters of a life.’ Quinto, most famous for playing Spock in the rebooted Star Trek franchise, is sitting in one of his favourite restaurants – Odeon in New York’s Tribeca – eating an omelette and fries, and talking about moving from Los Angeles to the Big Apple.
The bearded, handsome 37-year-old actor is known as ‘ZQ’ to his intimates, ‘Zach’ to his friends, and ‘Zachary’ to ‘people who know me just as an actor.’ He is soon to move into an apartment in Manhattan with his partner, the model and artist Miles McMillan, and a mini menagerie: a 14-year-old cat called Harold, and two terrier mixes, Noah, 12, and Skunk, 4.
‘There’s the uncertainty of giving up what is familiar and stepping into the unknown,’ says Quinto, ‘but I’m glad to do it.’ (To a similar end, he has taken up the banjo.) Quinto is clearing out his wardrobe and is dressed stylish-casual in duds that have so far survived the cull: Rag & Bone boots, slim-fit blue trousers, a maroon Polo Ralph Lauren jumper, and a grey coat. His style, like his manner, isn’t flashy or outlandish. ‘I like fashion,’ he smiles. ‘It has evolved with me. When I was in high school I was skinny and so I bought oversized sweaters, then in my early twenties everything got tight. There were questionable choices. Now it’s about form meeting function. I like departing from the norm in a subtle way. I mix colour and patterns.’ Quinto’s favourite labels include Acne Studios and Saint Laurent.

Zachary Quinto stopped by last night’s Late Night with Seth Meyers to talk about his new Starz unscripted series ‘The Chair’ in which he teams with Project Greenlight producer Chris Moore. The filmmaking docuseries will pit two up-and-coming directors against each other as they bring their unique take on the same script to the big screen.

This past Saturday, Starz premiered The Chair, a new series from Project Greenlight producer Chris Moore. The ten-episode competition takes the formula that helped make the 2001–2005 show a reality hit (having Ben Affleck and Matt Damon involved also helped, of course) and adds in a great twist: Two aspiring directors go head-to-head making their first films from the same script. And the directors couldn’t be more different. He’s a YouTube star; she’s a screenwriter who has come up through the indie film trenches. Serving as producer and mentor is actor Zachary Quinto, whose production company produced the Oscar-nominated Robert Redford film All Is Lost. We caught up with Quinto earlier this summer during the Television Critics Association press tour to talk about his new show and getting to hang with the cool kids on HBO’s Girls. (Unfortunately, this chat took place before Lena Dunham hinted he *might* be getting naked on the show.)
You were skeptical about doing this show. Why?
When I was first approached about doing “a reality show,” that was my trepidation. The delineation between a documentary series and a reality series is a hair-thin line, and I was really, really adamant about wanting to stay on the documentary side of that line.
Do you not watch any reality TV?
Here’s a video of Zach talking about ‘Star Trek’ sequel plans and if he will appear in the upcoming ‘Heroes’ reboot.
Last week Zach did a Tweet Out on Geek Nation to promote The Chair. He answered some Twitter questions including what inspires him, if we’ll see him in any upcoming episodes of “American Horror Story,” questions about his new docuseries “The Chair,” whether he’d return for “Heroes Reborn,” and many more!
