Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Casting, Celeb News,

Zachary QuintoZachary Quinto has been offered more acting jobs since coming out as gay. The Star Trek Into Darkness star - who plays Mr. Spock in the revamped franchise - is glad he opened up about his sexuality and believes it has a had a positive impact on his career.

"I haven't stopped working, I've only worked more since I came out," he told chat show host Jonathan Ross.

The actor also revealed he was encouraged to come out after a string of teenage suicides occurred in America shortly after he finished performing in a play called Angels in America, which focused on New York City during the height of the AIDS crisis: "I just felt like it was a convergence for me where I was in a position, and am in a position, for young people to look at the experience that I've had, to look at the opportunities that have been presented to me and to recognize in themselves that there is no limitation and that we live in a time where the tide is changing. For me I felt like it was the right time and the right way."

Star Trek 2 Plot Not ‘Solidified’

Benedict Cumberbatch and Zachary Quinto on the Star Trek 2 setZachary Quinto has revealed the plot to Star Trek 2 is not yet "solidified."

The actor - who plays the role of Vulcan character Spock in the sci-fi sequel - admits the director J.J. Abrams has not completely finished creating the storyline to the film, which he thinks is "great."

"What you guys are going to see has yet to be solidified, decided and defined and that's the great part about working with someone who is so mind-bogglingly talented as J.J. Abrams," he told E! News.

The movie - which also stars Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana and newcomers Benedict Cumberbatch and Alice Eve - has been filming for a number of weeks, and the 34-year-old hunk adds the schedule has been gruelling but enjoyable: "It's been a really overwhelming schedule, but in all the right ways. I love to work hard and I'm certainly doing that right now."

Very little is known about the script of the film, but it is believed Sherlock actor Benedict will be playing a villainous role after he was pictured in a fight scene with Spock.


VIDEO: Zachary Quinto Unsure of Star Trek 2 Start Date


Sorry Trekkies. Although we were previously lead to believe that filming on the Star Trek sequel would begin early next year, that apparently is not true. According to one of the main actors, a start date has not yet been determined.

“We have a while until we’re gonna do another one. It probably won’t be until next year at this time,” told MTV at Comic-Con. “I know there’s erroneous reports that we’re going back in January. Not true, as far as I know.”

VIDEO: The Star Trek Blooper Reel


Not sure how could get any better? Well, try these bloopers out for size.

In this reel, we learn the word loves the most (“Omigawd”), the instrument J.J. Abrams would probably use in a Rock Band tournament (the microphone) and the actor most likely to be injured by a set prop (Chris Pine).

The clip will most likely be included in the movie’s DVD release on November 17.

Over the past five days, did what most films have been attempting all year: It passed the $200 million mark. (Up just became the first 2009 film to hit $250 million.)

The Proposal's Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock

It seems a little skin might just go a long way.

Meanwhile, Reynolds is this week’s Bradley Cooper. Sandra’s leading man, like The Hangover star, has just had his second #1 film of the year. (The first being Wolverine.)

The Hangover

Unlike most Mike Tyson fights, ‘s win was no knockout.
