Last summer they were tearing up the screen as the new Kirk and Spock in Star Trek. This summer Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto are on different coasts working in very different projects. This week Pine begins his LA stage performance of the satire The Lieutenant of Inishmore, while Quinto is NYC started shooting the financial crisis drama Margin Call. We have photos from both below.
Zachary Quinto in Margin Call
Zachary Quinto is currently in New York shooting Margin call, a film about the recent financial crisis. Quinto is producing the film and playing one of the eight characters who the film follows during a fateful day of the crisis. Over the weekend Quinto tweeted one of his arty photo from the set with the comment "empire. state. reflections.’
Pine in The Lieutenant of Inishmore
This summer Chris Pine is appearing in the stage satire The Lieutenant of Inishmore at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles. Here is a synopsis:
Padraic (Chris Pine, Star Trek), a hard-boiled terrorist, has been away in Northern Ireland with his busy schedule of torture and assorted nationalist mayhem, but he is lured home to Inishmore by the news that his beloved cat, Wee Thomas, is doing poorly. When Padraic finds out Wee Thomas has been murdered, he initiates a cycle of revenge-killing that threatens everyone in his path, except perhaps the love-struck Mairead (Zoe Perry), a 16-year-old terrorist groupie with a BB gun.
The play opens this week, and here is a publicity photo of Chris.
