Spock makes out with a male humanoid!

Nope, this isn’t about the Kirk/Spock slash fiction but rather about Zachary Quinto, the actor who plays Spock in the new Star Trek movie (and Sylar in the TV series Heroes), and his kinky sauna scene in the 2006 TV show So NoTORIous.

Basically, way before Zach became famous as Sylar and before his acclaimed Vulcan role, he played Sasan, an openly gay Iranian-American character in So NoTORIous, which had Tori Spelling in the leading role. The sauna scene in particular had him make out with another guy, to the disgust of the lady sharing the sauna with them (the sauna is apparently unisex). I find the guy he makes out with pretty sexy, actually.

You can see a video of the scene on YouTube. Unfortunately, I couldn’t embed the video here so I just pasted a screenshot of the “hot” scene below. Consider this as a light respite from the serious blog posts that I’ve been doing lately. :-)

Update: Zachary Quinto came out in 2011. So I guess scenes like the one below were a clue to his actual orientation?
