“We love you in American Horror Story,” we gushed to recently-outed actor Zachary Quinto last night. We were at the Andaz Hotel, where directors, producers, and actors (along with alcohol sponsors) gathered to toast the winners of Gotham Independent Film Awards, held earlier that evening at Cipriani’s. We had cornered Mr. Quinto, whose movie Margin Call was nominated for Best Ensemble Performance (though it lost out to Beginners).
“I’m only going to be on one more episode,” the ethereally attractive actor told us.
“But you’re already dead! They can’t kill you off!” (It’s true…Ryan Murphy‘s dead characters have more screen time then the living.)
Mr. Quinto mulled it over while scanning the room for a quick exit strategy. “Sure…I guess dying on that show is more like job security.”
The still untitled Star Trek 2 may not have a name yet, but at least it has a release date. Deadline reports that Paramount has officially set it’s Star Trek sequel phasers on May 17, 2013. The date opened up after Sony pulled Roland Emmerich’s Singularity from May 17th, 2013, to Nov 1, 2013.
Writer/director J.J. Abrams’ of the 2009 Star Trek revamp will return as director. The movie is being co-written by Abrams with Lost‘s Damon Lindelof and Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci (Kurtzman and Orci wrote the revamp).
The main cast from the reboot, including Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto and Zoe Saldana, are all returning. Benicio Del Toro is rumored to be the villain but nothing has been confirmed.
And also, Star Trek 2 will be filmed in 3D. Not sure how that will effect the lens flare that was so prominent in the 2009 film.
As I told you by our Twitter account, my computer was having some technical issues and for this reason I didn’t post the last week’s American Horror Story screen captures. My dear friend Roberta decided to help us, and sent over HD caps to us. Check it:
Zach attended last night the “GQ Men of the Year” party, and a few pictures was released. You can find it in our gallery now:
