Most people would categorize Anton Yelchin as "the guy who played Chekov in J.J. Abram's 'Star Trek.'" However, in a recent interview with New York Magazine, the 22-year-old actor explains that he is so much more than that. For example, he loves early Norwegian death metal, lo-fi YouTube cult videos and David Lynch films. Oh, and he also wrote a script at the age of 16 about "a guy who had erotic visions of mannequins." Yelchin later went on to shoot "dozens of hours of footage" exploring his "conflicted sexual feelings." (Or as he described it: "Why am I more turned on by [a girl's] hipster dresses than an Ed Hardy shirt? I've been programmed. I seek out weird sexual things just to negate that.") Depending on your taste in film, both ideas may sound mildly intriguing or downright horrifying. But before you jump to conclusions, perhaps you should let Yelchin explain this concept further.
