The Curious Case of Zachary Quinto

Photo credit: zach-quinto.com

I can't decide whether to loathe this guy or develop a crush on him. He's been on "Heroes" for some time and now he wants us to go see him play Spock in the new Star Trek movie. Check him out in these clips from Letterman and Ellen. And let's meet up afterward to discuss the particulars.




Pro
His hair. It's surprisingly versatile. On Letterman it was slick and very evening appropriate. For daytime "Ellen" his do was decidedly more playful. I like a guy who knows when to muss and when to button up.
Con
His eyebrows are a little too well manscaped for my liking. Understandably tricky territory coming off the Spock look, but they needn't be so effing perfect.
Pro
He's very articulate. Yes, things have gotten so bad for grammar in 2009 that it's even noteworthy when a white guy speaks well.
Con
Use of the term "for reals." Even in jest, that's a lot to overlook.
Pro
He correctly handled the obligatory "dance with Ellen" part of his walk-out. As Chris Matthews learned this can be quite the booby trap. Well done, Zachary-San.
Cons
Sorry, Zachary. The skinny jeans that your little dance so prominently displayed are going to cost you.
Pro
He's happy to be there. Isn't it lovely when someone is so new to fame that they aren't yet pissed about being forced to tell stupid anecdotes to a total stranger while people watch? I think so. As a frame of reference, his jovial forebears include Matt and Ben. The polar opposite--Kristen Stewart.
Con
It's possible to be a little too "on". He comes dangerously close to this line.
Pro
He's an animal person! Cat and dog. (cat named harold and dog named noah)
Con
Hipster pet names (a cat named Harold?...yeesh)

So, I was going to say that it looked like a draw and whether I liked him or not would have to depend on one's mood and tolerance for "cute" when he happens to beam himself into your living room. Then I made the mistake of discovering his website. I always make the mistake of learning too much. Bygones.
