What Zachary Quinto Did in 2013

Here is what the amazingly talented and all-around-wonderful Zachary Quinto did in 2013.  I sure hope I got it right, or close to it, because I greatly admire this guy!  All omissions and mistakes are mine and the photo is not.

In 2013, Zach co-starred in Star Trek Into Darkness (as Spock), co-starred as a recurring character in four episodes of American Horror Story television series episodes, did the voice of Spock on the Star Trek video game, co-starred in the movie We’ll Never Have Paris (for a 2014 release) and was featured in the television documentary Star Trek Into Darkness Special.   In addition, he and Leonard Nimoy made a commercial for Audi together spiffing on their Spock and Spock relationship – here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPkByAkAdZs.  Zach also participated in the Galway (Ireland) Film Festival, where he did a Q & A for Star Trek Into Darkness and the movie that he Executive Produced in 2012 titled Margin Call.  (http://www.galwayfilmfleadh.com/).  ZQ has dozens of interviews on YouTube.
Zach is currently starring on Broadway in the The Glass Menagerie (as Tom), with an extended run into next year.  The play is getting excellent reviews - http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/27/theater/reviews/the-glass-menagerie-stars-cherry-jones-and-zachary-quinto.html?_r=0http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/music-arts/glass-menagerie-theater-review-article-1.1467392, and http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/review/glass-menagerie-theater-review-637472.  If you live in NYC and haven’t seen this play (and Waiting for Godot with Sir Patrick Stewart & Sir Ian McKellen), I’d like to give your butt a swift kick, because I’d LOVE a chance to see these plays and am envious of anyone who has been able to go!
Zach served as Executive Producer on two films that came out in 2013, All Is Lost (starring Robert Redford, and which is getting very good reviews - http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/18/movies/all-is-lost-with-robert-redford-at-sea.html?_r=0 and http://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/all-is-lost-2013.  He also executive produced the horror flick Banshee Chapter, all with his Before the Door production company.  He also served as Executive Producer on film shorts Lil Women and Big City Bright Lights, and as Producer on Breakup at a Wedding.  Before the Door’s website is http://www.beforethedoor.com/.
Zach was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie and was a presenter at the 67th Annual Tony Awards and at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.
He made appearances on Charlie Rose, Live with Kelly & Michael, Alaska Y Mario, Conan, Chelsea Lately, Conan, Entertainment Tonight, Weekend Ticket, Big Morning Buzz Live with Carrie Keagan, Real Time with Bill Maher, Late Night with Jimmy  Fallon, Watch What Happens Live and The Jonathan Ross Show.
Zach currently lives in New York City while performing on Broadway.  He is on Twitter at https://twitter.com/ZacharyQuinto, his official Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/zacharyquintoofficial and he is on Instagram as zacharyquinto (where he is prolific and fun to follow!).  His official website is http://www.zacharyquinto.com and is currently a work-in-progress.  I look forward to years of quality entertainment from the incredibly talented ZQ, both as an actor and producer.
