According to Latino Review, there’s a new Star Trek teaser trailer in the works.
“Apparently, there’s a teaser trailer in the works that shows the Enterprise being built. Code name for the production is Central Headquarters.”
Sounds like it’ll be pretty awesome.
Also, don’t forget to catch Zach on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight at 12:05/11:05! He hasn’t cancelled his appearance as far as I know.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Quinto has been pursued for the last few years by several leading representatives and has now signed on with United Talent Agency due to the level of support they have shown for him. UTA has had an interest in Quinto for quite a while and have been trying to woo him over as aggressively as possible.

“Their interest and support of my work had been so strong, that it factored heavily into my decision,” Quinto said. “I found them to be the most excited, enthusiastic and consistent in their pursuit.”
Quinto was previously represented by SMS Talent, who managed to find him work on �So Notorious,� �24� and, of course, �Heroes.� But despite leaving them behind, the actor has expressed nothing but appreciation for everything they done for him.
“I feel like the nature of the business is such that things are constricted so much, and I feel switching was a necessity,” he said. “But I gave it a tremendous amount of thought and have nothing but respect and gratitude for the work [SMS] did for me.”
“Heroes” can be seen each Monday night at 9 on NBC.
Of all the casting announcements for the new Star Trek, the one that seems most obvious is the first one – Zachary Quinto as the new Spock. He is talented, a break-out star on a hit TV series (Heroes), has the right look, and was highly motivated to get the part. But apparently it wasn’t a slam dunk after all. In a new Hollywood Reporter article about Quinto moving up to a bigger agency, there was this tidbit:
When he did a work session for Spock with the “Trek” casting director in June, the response he received was that, after seeing his tape, Abrams “wasn’t convinced” he was right for the role and had to move on and see other actors. That changed a couple of weeks later when Quinto met with Abrams. Soon after that, he became the first actor cast in the movie.
It will be a good question to ask Abrams what it was that changed in that face to face. Maybe it was the eyebrows.
The change in agency for Quinto is evidence of his rising star in Hollywood, and the casting in the new Trek film is a big part of that. THR notes that he is following a ‘familiar Hollywood path of breakout actors’ moving to bigger agencies who can ‘offer expansion into new arenas including producing and endorsements.’ However it looks like Quinto’s next move will be a return to his theater roots with plans a stint on Broadway after Trek and during his Heroes hiatus.
