Zachary is cover of Hamptons Magazine, on its Labor Day issue. On the interview, he talks a little bit about his next project Snowden:
Speaking of making connections, you just worked with one of your all-time favorites, Oliver Stone, on this December’s Snowden, the biopic about Edward Snowden. What was that like?
The experience was awesome. I loved working with Oliver Stone. I’ve been a fan of his movies from such a young age. I remember when JFK came out, I was obsessed with it. There’s just something about his brand of storytelling and his style that is so natural. Working with him was a real honor. We got along really well.
You play real-life journalist Glenn Greenwald, who in some ways is one of the heroes in this story.
I have a lot of respect for his passion and his intelligence. He’s an incredibly smart man, and it was really great to get to know his points of view a little bit through playing him. Something Glenn talks a lot about is this idea that it’s easy to go through our lives and to have the sense of “If we are being watched, I don’t have anything to hide. And if [watching us] helps keep us safer, then all right.” The problem with that mentality is that you don’t take into account what could happen in the future. For any number of reasons a person could all of a sudden find himself in the position of being opposed to the government and taking a stand or becoming part of movement that is taking a stand that could be considered confrontational. Then because of this mass surveillance, you have all this information like the “cloud.” I learned a lot about how easy it is to hack into our phones, computers, and [web] cams—which I now have a piece of tape over all the time. It made me not paranoid, just aware of how to communicate and when to be careful. Being a part of something like this film is like looking down the barrel at something.

Zachary Quinto gave an emotional tribute to Leonard Nimoy in a video released Tuesday.
Leonard was an actor, a champion of the arts, and a true inspiration to so many. Through his legendary portrayal of Spock, he influenced countless scientists and artists, myself and the rest of the [‘Star Trek Beyond’] cast included.
Quinto then called on fans to donate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a charity that Nimoy donated to and championed. The donations are part of the “Star Trek: To Boldly Go” Omaze campaign, which gives fans the chance to win a walk-on role in “Star Trek Beyond.”
By contributing $10 or more, supporters will be entered to win a walk-on role in the film, while also benefiting selected charities, including Make A Wish and Heaven Homes in addition to St. Jude’s.

Hitman: Agent 47 centers on an elite assassin who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, and is known only by the last two digits on the barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. He is the culmination of decades of research – and forty-six earlier Agent clones — endowing him with unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence. His latest target is a mega-corporation that plans to unlock the secret of Agent 47’s past to create an army of killers whose powers surpass even his own. Teaming up with a young woman who may hold the secret to overcoming their powerful and clandestine enemies, 47 confronts stunning revelations about his own origins and squares off in an epic battle with his deadliest foe.
