Recently Star Trek and Heroe’s star Zachary Quinto has said that he wants to expand out of the sci-fi genre and it looks like one way he might do that is a supporting role in an R-Rated romantic comedy. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Quinto has been offered a role in the Anna Faris comedy What’s Your Number. Details below.
Quinto the ex
The Anna Faris comedy What’s Your Number is based on the Karyn Bosnak book "20 Times a Lady" about a woman (Faris) who, after sleeping with her 20th man, decides that was enough and revisits her ex boyfriends to find Mr. Right. According to EW, Zachary Quinto has been offered a part as one of the ex boyfriends. Andy Samberg will also play one of the exes and Chris Evans plays Faris’ next door neighbor. Filming is expected to start in May. Quinto’s next project is Margin Call, a film he is producing that was last reported to be starting production this Spring. The actor has also been reported to be the leading candidate for biopic about musician George Gershwin. So it looks like Zachary is making good on filling out his resume in between his stints in Star Trek movies.
