George Takei, aka Sulu from Star Trek, is going to play Hiro Nakamura’s father in Heroes.
Takei’s character is big honcho who shows up in America with his bodyguard to try and kidnap his son and take him back to Japan, said Masi Oka, who plays Hiro, in TV Guide.
“I just hope I get to say, ‘Dad! Sulu is my hero, not you!’ The sci-fi fans would love it!” Oka said.
It’s a natural fit for Takei, a legendary sci-fi icon, to join the hottest science fiction show on TV.
