Zachary Quinto Signs on to Star with James Franco in Film About 'Ex-Gay' Activist Michael Glatze

Glatze_franco

Back in April we reported that James Franco was set to play Michael Glatze, founder of the (now shuttered) gay twink magazine XY and the short-lived publication Young Gay America who went "ex-gay" and became a poster boy for that movement.

QuintoNow Variety reports that Zachary Quinto and Emma Roberts have signed on to the film:

Quinto will play the former boyfriend of Franco’s character. Roberts is set to reteam with her “Palo Alto” co-star as his girlfriend. Chris Zylka (“The Amazing Spider-Man,” “Piranha 3DD”) is also attached to the film as another past love interest.

The script for “Michael” is based on “My Ex-Gay Friend,” a New York Times Magazine article by Benoit Denizet-Lewis (author of “Travels with Casey”) about Michael Glatze, a Christian minister from Wyoming who was so entrenched in gay culture before rejected his homosexuality, he founded a gay youth magazine. Justin Kelly will direct. Gus van Sant is the executive producer, along with producers James Franco, Vince Jolivette, Michael Mendelsohn, Ron Singer and Scott Reeve.


Zachary Quinto Pushes Newcastle Brown Ale, Looks Sexy While Doing So: VIDEO

Zachary Quinto and Newcastle Brown Ale have a proposition for you: What if the Brits won?

“Newcastle has asked me to tell you about 'Independence Eve', their new holiday celebrating how much better things would be if the British ruled over America.” Quinto explains. "[I]f the Brits ran this country every actor would be an insanely talented British thespian who would make your every soap opera, deodorant ad, and comic book movie franchise truly moving."

Whether the gay Spock actor is, in fact, America’s answer to Ian McKellen is up for debate, but the ad is charming all the same.

Watch Zachary muse if he’s actually a closeted British thespian merely giving the American “performance of a lifetime” AFTER THE JUMP...

Zachary Quinto, who recently returned to the New York stage in a widely lauded turn as Tom Wingfield in Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie, sat down with online fashion retailer Mr Porter to talk sartorial wisdom, why the actor prefers New York to LA, and his entrepreneurial endeavors in film-making, among other topics.

On fashion:

"It's more a matter of trying to make sure I'm wearing things that fit well but that are not boring," says Mr Quinto in his dressing room upstairs at the Booth Theater, where in a few hours he will take to the stage in Mr Williams' 1945 play. "As a guy, that's a little more of a challenge than if you're able to wear a big gown. We have to work with fewer resources. It becomes about the details. Cufflinks. Tie bars. Do you have a break in your trousers or is it a shorter hem? I've learnt a lot about tailoring: what fits and what lines are good for me and my body type."

On New York versus LA:

"New York is more about function over form," he says. "LA's a little more about how things look. Here, there's less time to think about it. I put less thought and effort into it. I will literally wear the same thing for a few days because my days are spent running around" [...]

"I've always wanted to live here [in New York]," he says. "The past 13 years of working in LA were a lot about figuring out when and how to get back here. I love Los Angeles, it's a beautiful city, but it has no soul. It requires so much more effort. Here, you step outside of your apartment and you never know where it's going to take you." 

On his production company, Before The Door, which produced the financial crisis thriller Margin Call and, more recently, Robert Redford's All Is Lost (for which Redford just received a Golden Globe nod):

"I have to focus on my career as an actor primarily in order to give myself any credit or leverage to run this company to begin with," he explains. 

But mostly, Mr Quinto insists, "I've learnt that it's possible to make really good films and to have everybody enjoy the process of doing it. And that's a great thing to know." As of now, Before The Door has about six projects in active development and is looking for vehicles for Mr Quinto, which could potentially include a cable television series with "a really unique character" that he would not elaborate on.

On what comes after Broadway:

The last time [Mr Quinto] finished a play in New York - a revival of Angels in America - he took a month-long trek to Peru by himself. "That's a different thing than going on vacation," he says. Right now, he's considering India, though Bora Bora might win out.
