While the financial crisis has been one of the biggest global events since the Second World War, the film industry has had difficulty dealing with it.

The first entries in our advent calendar were actors from recent gay-themed movie, and now it’s time for a man who’s only recently come out as gay, Zachary Quinto. His quiet yet powerful coming out was also a good reminder of what a hottie he is, and just to confirm that, it was great to see him playing gay – and rather camp – on American Horror Story recently (and getting killed by a guy in a all-over rubber gimp suit, no less).
In case you haven’t been paying attention, since Heroes ended Quinto hasn’t just been waiting around to play Spock in a sequel to Star Trek (which shoots early next year, incidentally). He’s turned producer with the movie Margin Call, which he also stars in, alongside Paul Bettany and Kevin Spacey. The movie recently picked up Best First Film for director JC Chandor from the New York Film Critics Circle, so it may do well in the upcoming awards season. It hits UK cinemas on January 12th.
However in our advent calendar we mainly care that he’s pretty, so enjoy our selection of pics of him below, including a few topless and man-on-man snogging shots from the TV show So NoTORIous, which are particularly nice to see. Click below to enlarge the images and underneath that enjoy a video of his getting cover in white, creamy goo. And no, we’re not kidding about that. [Read more…]
