Tuesday on "The Talk," actor Zachary Quinto discusses his new film "The Boys in the Band." Carrie Ann Inaba asks, "What did it mean to you to make this movie?" "Many things actually. Initially, I was a little resistant to it because there was kind of a stigma attached to this play over the years. When the play premiered in 1968 it was revolutionary. No one had ever seen anything like it and then they made the film version of it... and what happened between those two things was the Stonewall uprising. So what had been this revolutionary exploration of gay experience became something that a lot of people considered reductive and backward looking." Quinto adds, "I had never read the play or seen the movie, but I had that feeling about it, and I'm so grateful that I said yes to it, because really it has opened me up to just how important a piece this is, and how resonant it is today, even fifty years later. First to show how far they've come, and also to show how far we've yet to go, in terms of integration of our experience. I've had such a great time and got to work with eight incredible actors. All of us are out and gay and thriving."
