Zachary Quinto describes Romney as ‘reptilian’
Zachary Quinto is having trouble understanding why the the race for US president between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney remains so close.
‘The choice in this election is so fundamentally clear,’ the openly gay actor said on Chelsea Lately show on Tuesday night. ‘I feel like Mitt Romney’s reptilian self is barely able to suppress itself as we get closer to this election. That debate (Monday) night was so clear for me. How anybody could spin it that Obama did anything other than clean the floor with that guy last night, I have no idea.’
Quinto is so invested in Obama being reelected that he is a campaign volunteer who has spent weekends traveling to various swing states in support of the president.
‘I was just in Wisconsin last week and I’m going to Colorado and Nevada this weekend,’ he said.
‘As a gay man, is no choice in this election on a social level. This country is so in dire need of moving in the direction that Obama wants take us in. I just can’t understand how we’re so divided.’
Quinto, best known for his role as Mr. Spock in the most recent Star Trek movie, is appearing in the current season of American Horror Story.
