Zachary Quinto stars in the new NBC miniseries "The Slap" as Harry, Hector's hot tempered and opinionated cousin.
Recently, Quinto completed production on the drama "Michael" alongside James Franco. The film is based on a "New York Times" magazine article by Benoit Denizet-Lewis titled "My Ex-Gay Friend." Last year, he completed production on "Hitman: Agent 47," which is set for release later this year.
Quinto was seen on stage a few months ago as Tom Wingfield in "The Glass Menagerie" at the Booth Theatre on Broadway. The production was nominated for a 2014 Tony Award in the category of best revival of a play. He returned to the stage in 2010, winning several awards for his performance as Louis Ironson in the off-Broadway revival of Tony Kushner's epic play cycle "Angels in America," directed by Michael Greif.
Quinto reprised his role as Spock in 2013's "Star Trek Into Darkness," the sequel to J.J. Abrams' 2009 feature film reboot. In 2011, he appeared on Ryan Murphy's Golden Globe-winning series "American Horror Story." In 2012, Quinto returned to star in the second installment, "American Horror Story: Asylum," for which he won a Critics' Choice Award. Quinto also received his first Emmy nomination for this role.
In 2008, Quinto founded Before the Door Pictures with producing partners Neal Dodson and Corey Moosa. They have numerous projects in all states of development across a wide range of new media, television, graphic novels and film. Previous projects include the films "Margin Call" and "All Is Lost," both directed by J.C. Chandor.
One of Quinto's most familiar roles was on NBC's popular series "Heroes," in which he played the psychopathic super-powered serial killer Sylar. Several years earlier, he spent an entire season in the CTU as computer analyst Adam Kaufman on "24."
Quinto grew up in Pittsburgh and enrolled at Carnegie Mellon University School of Drama and earned a BFA in musical theater. Upon graduation from CMU, Quinto moved to Los Angeles to begin his career, landing guest-starring roles on such shows as "CSI," "Six Feet Under," "Joan of Arcadia," and "Crossing Jordan."
Quinto currently divides his time between New York and Los Angeles.
