There’s a strange new improvisational comedy series on VH1 called Free Radio, and Star Trek‘s Zachary Quinto (the new Spock) was a guest on last week’s episode. The show is set in a dysfunctional radio station where an idiot DJ interviews celebrities. Quinto appeared as himself, and talked a bit about the new Trek film… at least, when the DJ lets him. Details and video below.
Although the show is a joke, Quinto did seem to speak genuinely about Trek, for example on his audition:
I didn’t read for JJ, he saw my tape. I went in one time for April Webster, who is the casting director, who’s awesome and really is a huge part of why I got this job ’cause she was so supportive of me during the process…
Quinto also showed off his Vulcan salute which he said he has been practicing. Naturally, Quinto couldn’t reveal any plot points but did (after being pressed) promise there were “no whales involved.”
You can watch Quinto’s ‘interview’ below.
Free Radio airs Friday nights at 9:30pm on VH1. More at the official site.
