Some videos from yesterday’s The Glass Menagerie Meet the Press surfaced and you now can find them in our video archive.
Also, the website New York Theater has some cool Q&A with the cast members, including the revelation that none of them was impressed with Tennessee Williams’ play when they first read it in school. It was Tiffany’s production that turned Zachary’s view around.
The cast of American Repertory Theater’s production of Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie met the press today to welcome the acclaimed revival to Broadway. Directed by John Tiffany, the drama stars two-time Tony Award winner Cherry Jones as Amanda Wingfield, Zachary Quinto as Tom, Celia Keenan-Bolger as Laura, and Brian J. Smith as The Gentleman Caller. Opening at the Booth Theatre on September 26, The Glass Menagerie begins previews on September 5.
Check in our gallery some HQ pictures of the cast on the meeting:
In the opening scene of Star Trek Into Darkness, Spock almost gets baked alive as he ventures into the maw of a volcano that’s about to erupt on planet Nibiru. Perched on a giant crag and surrounded by sheets of ember and flame, the famed Vulcan-Human hybrid at one point seems resigned to his fate, stretching his arms out wide as he looks skyward.
“All of the stuff that took place in the volcano was one night, and it was pretty exciting, actually, I have to say, because you could tell how incredible it’s going to look,” Spock’s Zachary Quinto says about the shooting of the scene in an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip unveiled today by Rolling Stone. “What they were able to do in-camera on that particular sequence was mind-blowing to me.”
Star Trek Into Darkness will be released on Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD and On Demand on September 10 (a digital release comes out on August 20), and the Blu-ray/DVD combo packs come with a lot of behind the scenes footage. In fact, director J.J. Abrams had his crew at his Bad Robot Productions chronicle the making of the film using top-notch Red Epic cameras.
Digital release available August 20; Blu-ray/DVD combo out September 10. Video first released by RollingStone.com.
If Zachary Quinto appeared on “The Big Bang Theory,” our whole universe would be in a hot dense state.
“I met one of the producers at an event and we talked about the show,” the actor, who plays “Star Trek’s” Spock in the rebooted movie franchise, confirmed to TODAY.com. “I would love to do it if I could.”
And “Big Bang” would love to have him. Executive producer Steven Molaro told TODAY.com, “We think that’s great. There’s nothing set in stone yet, but if we can get that to work out we’d be really excited about it.”
If they do manage to make it so, Quinto would prefer not to follow in the Vulcan footsteps of Leonard Nimoy, who voiced a Spock action figure in the 2012 episode “The Transporter Malfunction.”
“I’ll reserve another portrayal of Spock for the third ‘Star Trek,’ ” Quinto told us.
Instead, like fellow “Trek” franchise star Wil Wheaton’s own hot-tempered recurring role, Quinto said he’d rather play “some twisted version of myself – really get into it with Sheldon.”
And what a fight it could be. In a season five episode of “Big Bang,” Sheldon, who was expecting a life-size cutout of Nimoy’s Spock but received Quinto’s apparently inferior version instead, griped, “Live long and suck it, Zachary Quinto!”
“The Big Bang Theory” returns for a seventh season – hopefully with Quinto aboard – Sept. 26 on CBS.
