Zachary Quinto has narrated United Nations (UN) Free & Equal video on the social and economic costs of LGBT exclusion. Free & Equal is a UN campaign for LGBT equality.
Do you know how much discrimination really costs?
Rates of poverty, homelessness, depression and suicide have been found to be far higher among lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people than in the general population. But it’s not just LGBT people who pay the price. We all do. Every LGBT child thrown out of home and forced to miss out on education is a loss for society. Every LGBT worker denied their rights is a lost opportunity to build a fairer and more productive economy.
These losses are entirely self-inflicted. With different laws and policies in place and a different mind-set, we could and would achieve a more free and equal world – that is more prosperous too!
Jon Hamm is joining Zachary Quinto in the indie drama Aardvark. Brian Shoaf wrote and will direct the project, which is being financed by Green Point Media.
The script centers on a mentally ill man, played by Quinto, who after suffering hallucinations, begins to see a therapist. He believes he has fallen in love, but isn’t sure if his new soulmate is real or a hallucination. At the same time, his new therapist also finds love — with her new patient’s famous brother (played by Hamm).
On top of starring, Quinto is producing via his Before the Door Pictures. The film is currently shooting in New York. (THR)
When Zachary Quinto returns to the stage in MCC Theater’s “Smokefall” early next year, he will be joined by Robin Tunney of CBS’s “The Mentalist” and Julia Garner, a costar with Lily Tomlin in the independent film “Grandma.”
“Smokefall,” a surreal family drama that had a favorably reviewed run last year in Chicago with a different cast, is written by Noah Haidle and directed by Anne Kauffman, who recently oversaw MCC’s production of “The Nether.” Previews begin on Feb. 4, with opening night set for Feb. 22.
In this play, he is Fetus Two alongside Brian Hutchison (“Pocatello”) as Fetus One. Together they pass their time in the womb discussing philosophy. Their mother, Violet, will be played by Ms. Tunney in her stage debut. (Artsbeat)
