Not to be outdone by the Looking crew, Mr. Quinto shared a somewhat revealing photo of himself watching a bit of the Emmys in between filming scenes for his new movie, Michael, about 'ex-gay' activist Michael Glatze that stars James Franco as the title character. Quinto shared the above photo on Instagram with the caption, "literally watching the emmys as i change clothes between scenes for our movie... no complaints. GO FRIENDS!!!"
Zachary Quinto Hub
James Franco and his Michael co-star Zachary Quinto debuted via Instagram this week their new looks for the upcoming film about 'ex-gay' activist Michael Glatze.
Franco now sports the 90s blonde look of Glatze, while Quinto shows off some bangs and more in an XY t-shirt. XY was the (now shuttered) gay twink magazine founded by Glatze back in 1996.
Let's Party! Blondes have more fun!! But do you respect me?????
a little xy trailer time (with early 2000s bangs) after my pretend beebee@jamesfrancotv told me to put my salmon lips on his bagels.
Quinto will reportedly play the former boyfriend of Glatze in the film.
Think these two are pulling off the 90s/early 2000s look?
James Franco continues to post images presumably shot during production of Michael, the film about 'ex-gay' activist Michael Glatze, co-starring Zachary Quinto. Franco posted one of he and his "new lover" Quinto earlier this week.
Writes Franco on Instagram: "Me and Quinto out with Molly! ...Molly is a girl I know! Wtf!"
Molly, of course, is the street name for the club drug MDMA. Madonna once got in trouble for mentioning it.
James Franco posted an photo today in his role as ex-gay activist Michael Glatze for the upcoming film Michael. The movie tells the story of Glatze, the 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.

Last month, it was reported that Zachary Quinto had signed on to play the former boyfriend of Franco’s character. Emma Roberts and Chris Zylka will also star.
The film, produced by Gus van Sant and directed by Justin Kelly, is based on “My Ex-Gay Friend,” a New York Times Magazine article by Benoit Denizet-Lewis. You can read the article HERE.
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.
Now 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 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...
