Q is for Zachary Quinto

Zachary Quinto first came to my notice when he portrayed Spock in the 2009 movie “Star Trek”. I’m sure many fellow science fiction geeks are well aware of this. He really does a fantastic job, in my humble opinion. But I’m more of a horror fan than admirer of this rebooted cinematic series.

And Mr. Quinto was amazing as Dr. Oliver Thredson on television’s “American Horror Story: Asylum”. He looked the period part, too, with that black hair all slicked down and the sixties era conservative dark suit and tie. This is shallow, but he made that look sexy.

“AHS: Asylum” is definitely not for the faint of heart. Its introduction showed so many warning letters (TV-MA, L, S, V for the various parental guidelines) that my partner called it alphabet soup. And yet we could hardly wait for each week’s new episode.

Scary themes and dark storylines are somewhat of an addiction, I must admit. Is there a guilty pleasure on your DVR?

  3. I think Zachary Quinto is a great actor! I must admit that I find AHS to be a bit too scary for me! I liked him in Star Trek, of course, but I think of him more from his role as Sylar in "Heroes." Definitely one of the best villains ever !

  4. Saw that Star Trek, so I think I know the actor you're talking about. Sometimes I'm a little behind on popular stars!

  6. Zachary Quinto will forever be Skylar from Heroes for me. I think he did a beautiful job as Spock, but Skylar imprinted him on me, so I had to open up big time to accept him as that character. You should definitely check it out! Thanks for visiting my blog --. Jeri from storytellingmatters.wordpress.com
