medium well.

brian jarvis and i used to sling hash together at a hipster coffee shop in hollywood.  that is the cornerstone of our friendship.  i have never laughed so hard over a plate of greasy fries.  and as i look back on that time when i was chasing something that - i know now can't be caught - i am grateful to have shared it with the likes of brian jarvis.  and i am more grateful that all these years later - he still makes me laugh as hard.  and he's not slinging hash anymore.  he's dressing up like a crazy mid-century-style butcher covered in blood chomping a cigar.  and living with a steak (the inimitable jim freeman).  this is the first in a line of little offerings of work that i and we at before the door believe in - and are honored to share.  they will come sporadically and in our own time.  they will all come surrounded by some quiet fanfare.  they will come from different points of view.  but will also come from voices that we have known for many years.  long before before the door.  brian jarvis is the first.  and i - and we - are proud to present:

ZQ NARRATES: the new "STAR TREK" Audiobook

Tomorrow, Simon & Schuster releases the Zachary Quinto audiobook of the "STAR TREK" movie novel adaptation written by Alan Dean Foster, based on Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman's screenplay. Zachary narrates the entire 8.5 hour book and voices all of the characters, which includes parts of the story that are not in the movie. Go to the ZQ STORE to buy your copy. 

John Tenuto reviewed Zachary's narration on - here is an excerpt of that REVIEW:

"The Narration by Zachary Quinto

I cannot offer enough accolades to Zachary Quinto's narration. He is simply the best audio book narrator in the history of Star Trek, and that is saying quite a great deal considering the formidable and venerable talents of George Takei and James Doohan. Yet, Quinto shows all his acting abilities in the audio adaptation and he has a thoughtful style as narrator. He performs Scotty and Chekov flawlessly (watch out Anton Yelchin!). He also has a subtly in his voice while performing Kirk that is very good and displays the assuredness of the character without being a parody. One of the fun things about listening to audio books is to hear how various narrators act out characters of the opposite sex (think William Shatner in "Turnabout Intruder"). Quinto does very good at hinting at the femininity of characters without lisping to exaggerations or stereotypical imitations. In the film, Eric Bana uses several voices as he performs Nero (compare his voices when welcoming back Spock with talking to Pike). Quinto does a very good job of staying consistent and sounding like Bana. Quinto is a true master of various accents.

As the generic narrator, Quinto also displays excellent qualities. His tonation and energy help maintain interest during the 8.5 hours of the audio book. His abilities as narrator and character actor are especially seen in the scenes on the USS Kelvin. With only his voice (no sound effects or music accompany his reading of the text), Quinto is able to convey all the sadness and tragedy of those moments. In fact, he is so good that as a father and fan, I am not embarrassed to say there were tears in my eyes while listening to Quinto's heartbreaking reading of the scenes between Winona and George Kirk. That he is able to engender this kind of emotion in an audio book speaks volumes about Quinto's talent."
