This past Sunday, in an interview with New York Magazine, Star Trek star Zachary Quinto had officially revealed himself as a gay man.
New York Magazine caught up with the 34-year-old actor again after the news of his coming out hit the public: "When I sat down with Ben on Monday and had that conversation, I knew what I was going to do and it was a very clear choice for me to do it in the way that I did it, and I'm really glad that that's the way it all unfolded,...I never ever imagined that it would be — I mean, I guess I figured people would figure it out, hear about it, but I didn't know it would be like global news! I was like, What? It was really crazy to me. People from all over the world were reaching out to me on the Internet, on Twitter. Social media makes it a lot easier now. I'm just really honored and thrilled and grateful."
Attention all of you closet Trekkies, this GenderBender is dedicated to you. Halloween is the perfect excuse to dress and act like you're in Star Fleet, so you may want to take advantage.
Spock has always been my favorite, and lucky for us he's an easy one to immitate.
1. The blue top: Spock's star fleet color has always been blue/teal. Any plain blue top will do, but a t-shirt dress is a great way to womanize your Spock look.
2. The Star Fleet symbol: Print out the symbol from your computer and trace it onto gold material. Cut the symbol out and outline it in black permanent marker. Glue it to the upper left side of your top.
When I say that Jason Alexander is coming to Las Vegas for a new one-man show I receive many blank stares. But when I say George Costanza is coming, there is an overwhelming understanding and excitement. This is the curse of an acclaimed-sitcom actor.
Though it's been over a decade since Alexander's portrayal of George on the hit show, Seinfeld, the character still makes a strong imprint on his life. Fifteen years ago, William Shatner, who experienced a similar relationship with the character Capt. James T. Kirk on Star Trek, pulled Alexander aside to give the present of insightful advice on Alexander's 35th birthday.
It's a Thursday. I’m trying to get off the couch because it's already been a long week. Then, the incentive to get motivated comes in the form of a text message from Jessica White. Sport Illustrated models always get me motivated. She’s in town, bored and wants to hangout. My response? I’m in! She’s staying at the Standard Hotel. I offer to pick her up because I haven’t been there yet and I’m curious. The hotel lobby is small and there is a cute little bar that services the lobby. I’m sure there’s more to come. Mean while, Ms. White has me waiting 20 minutes. Jeez… I love it!
Those familiar with the films of Danish director Lars von Trier (Breaking the Waves, Dogville) know that his work isn’t for the faint of heart. Or for those that like to leave the cinema feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. His latest film, bearing the happy-go-lucky title Antichrist, proved that the self-proclaimed “best director in the world” is nothing if not consistent.
Stunning the audience at the world premiere today in Cannes, the film, starring Charlotte Gainsbourg and Willem Dafoe, depicts a middle-aged couple who retreat to a secluded cabin in the woods to get over the loss of their son. Soon, bad things start to happen. Just how bad can be gleaned from an excerpt from Time Magazine, which facetiously compares von Trier’s film to Star Trek:
