GLASS MENAGERIE's Zachary Quinto Says He Wants to 'Make a Living Doing Just Theatre'
The Associated Press reveals that film and television star Zachary Quinto, who is currently making his Broadway debut in this year's revival of Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie, would consider leaving Hollywood to act onstage full-time.
"[Hollywood] was always a means to an end to me. I always felt like I wanted to be in L.A. so that I could come back here and do theater and now I'm making good on that promise to myself," Quinto told the AP. "I didn't want to come in, swoop in with my name above the title of the play like I was some Hollywood entity. I've been doing theatre since I was 10. Theatre's my jam. It's my life, ultimately. If I could make a living doing just theatre, I feel like I really might."

Smith as Jim, the Gentleman Caller.
Quinto has also starred onstage in Signature Theatre's 2010 productions of Angels in America: Perestroika and Angels in America: Millennium Approaches. His upcoming films include We'll Never Have Paris, The Invitation, The Girl Who Invented Kissing and You Were Never Here. Past screen credits are Star Trek and Star Trek: Into Darkness, as well as the TV series American Horror Story, Heroes and 24.
