Zachary Quinto reacts to 'rumors' of quitting 'Star Trek': 'Simmer down'

Is Zachary Quinto going to quit the "Star Trek' movie series after the second film? He recently addressed what he called "rumors" and told fans to "simmer down."

EW quoted the 35-year-old actor as saying in a recent interview that he is ready to "go in a different direction" with his career after the second film in J. J. Abrams' movie series, "Star Trek Into Darkness," hits theaters on May 17, 2013.
Quinto made his debut as Spock, a pointy-eared half-Vulcan, half-human Starfleet Academy member, in the 2009 film "Star Trek." He previously played the serial killer Sylar on the NBC show "Heroes" and currently stars on FX's "American Horror Story" as the psychotherapist Dr. Oliver Thredson.
EW had quoted him as saying in the interview: "It's like an era of association with certain roles -- a specific part like Spock, or a kind of part, like Sylar -- is coming to an end. I think it's safe to say this will be the last serial killer I'll be playing for the foreseeable future."
He later took to Twitter to clarify his remarks.
"Simmer down kids," Quinto Tweeted to his some 575,000 followers. "Rumors are rumors for a reason. quotes out of context. let's let the second movie come out before we talk about a third... (sic)."

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
