Spock Lust Spectacular


I thought I'd carry over our conversation from the comments into a new post with lots of *visual stimulation*, LOL! Yes, it's Spock Lust Spectacular Day here at LIT, with all the LIT Ladies on-board except for Charlotte--though Charlotte has yet to see the new Star Trek movie, so that might explain it.



I swear, if you'd shown me Zach Quinto's photo a month ago, I probably (might) have shrugged and said "Eh." But isn't it interesting how our eye gets a new filter when you've got added, supplemental visuals and information in your head to go with a photo? Now when I look at photos of Quinto, I don't just see a 2-dimensional photo of an actor, but I see the actor who played Spock--and who made Spock sexy (or should I say "sexier"? I'm suddenly finding Nimoy's Spock to be pretty sexy, too!). I'm also seeing the actor that I've watched in numerous interviews--unbelievably well spoken and interesting and intelligent and just generally fascinating.

Now, I look at these pictures and am like Pavlov's salivating dog. Personally, I find this a very interesting phenomena. Obviously there are some individuals whose looks alone are enough to make you take notice. But there are others who aren't necessarily classically good looking, and yet when you bring other stuff to your examination, they suddenly become gorgeous (in many ways I think Rob Pattinson fits in this category--I mean, I wasn't salivating over him back when he was Cedric Diggory--it was only when he became Edward that I sat up and took notice, and I don't think I'm the only one).

Anyway, back to Zach. Sigh..... So, hot or not?? And include in your answer whether or not you've seen him as Spock or as Sylar, or if he's a totally 'new face' to you. It'll be interesting to see if there's any correlation.

Oooh, and ZACH is reading the audiobook version of the movie-tie-in novelization! I am SO buying this. I could listen to his voice for hours....

Ok, not hot for me, but I'll give you Rob Pattinson/Edward. I totally dig him as Edward.
Sorry to be such a party pooper. Maybe it'll change once I see Star Trek
