Quinto to play gay ghost in horror show

Sun 23 Oct 2011 In: International News View at Wayback

Heroes and Star Trek actor Zachary Quinto will play a dead gay man in a new series American Horror Story, after he recently spoke for the first time publicly about being gay to New York magazine. In the show created by Glee executive producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, Quinto will portray Chad, the former gay owner of the haunted house who befriends a woman played by Connie Britton. The gruesome horror series has received rave reviews and was one of the most-watched cable series on Wednesday in the US, with 2.59 million viewers, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The 34-year-old actor gave an interview to New York magazine and said that it was his role in the Broadway revival of Angels in America as Louis Ironson that made him realize how important it was to contribute to the gay community.
