In this otherwise totally predictable thumbsucking New York Times profile of Zachary Quinto, which features the Star Trek/Heroes star going to great lengths to explain that while Hollywood pays the rent, his superior heart is in the theatre, dahling, the reporter gets off his own bit of silliness:
Mr. Quinto pierces the sympathetic core of a character tormented by his own failings and by the existential agonies of living in Ronald Reagan’s America.
Two thoughts: 1) It’s amazing that serious people still deny liberal bias in the press when it is so blithely and openly inserted into even non-political arts features. I mean, seriously, “existential agonies”? 2) I love and frequently attend live theatre and yet still manage to recognize it’s a matter of taste, not an opportunity for pseudo-intellectual self-fluffing. Congrats on the Kushner gig, Spock, but to be such pompous ass about it is…highly illogical.
