'The Slap' star Zachary Quinto chats with AOL BUILD

"The Slap" has officially gotten our attention.

The controversial NBC mini-series, starring the all-star cast of Zachary Quinto, Thandie Newton, Uma Thurman, Melissa George, Peter Sarsgaard and Thomas Sadoski, is causing quite the chatter among parents, critics and the media following its premiere last week.

The show is centered around a moment when an adult slaps another parent's child and follows the series of events that unfold and how it affects the key characters.

Some parents and critics are already calling foul – how could another parent lay a hand on someone else's child? Meanwhile, others are applauding the show for shining a light on a difficult subject.

Join lead actor Zachary Quinto for a live interview with AOL BUILD at 2:00 p.m. EST as he discusses his role on the hotly-debated show.
