Spielberg Gets A Hero For Gershwin Flick

| Filed under: Film FlickersZachary QuintoSteven Spielberg


An interesting choice!

Steven Spielberg is reportedly starting work on a new bio-flick based on the life of composer George Gershwin. Slated to play the legendary piano man is Zachary Quinto. Steven and Dreamworks are so excited about the Heroes hunk coming on board that they have supplied him with accent and dialogue coaches to help him prepare to begin filming in April.

What an opportunity Zach! Guess it wasn't such a hard decision to hang up the pointed ears to take this role!

    He isn't "hanging up his ears". He is simply taking on another role because he is an ACTOR.

    Love ZQ! Can't wait to see him take on this and other roles in the future. He's on his way to movie superstardom!

    Kind of nice to have a gay man actually played by a gay man for once.

    Yay! This should be awesome!

    Re: Spindoc – Zach's never come out as gay, so who are you to assume that he is? I personally have no idea, but then again A) I don't really care, and B) it's not up to anyone to decide if he is or isn't.

    What's with the long "GAYface?"

    He has to be one of the weirdest looking people I've ever seen.

    Yay!! this actually sounds like a movie worth seeing! oh and btw, gershwin was NOT gay to whomever commented that.

    I'm so excited about this. I actually think that Gershwin will get a bump by Quinto and become a more exciting thing for people who aren't that into his music.

    Love them both. Oh man this is going to be so amazing, ZQ is climbing up to A list =D

    I hope everything works out for Zachary Quinto; he's such a talented actor. I would love to see him make a trip to the Kodak Theatre and take home Mr. Oscar for best actor in leading role. He's currently my favorite actor along with Denzel Washington the messiah of acting. You can't touch the theatre trained actors or actresses; they will always outshine the TV and the Big Screen actors or actresses.

    I have nothing bad to say about Zachary Quinto, you're the shit! Keep doing what you do. I love you on Heroes, you’re reason why I watch that show, if decide to leave, I will no longer watch it. I guess I’ll have to watch all of your movies instead. Also, he’s fine and intelligent and a complete gentlemen. He would make a wonderful husband.
