Yes, I am a Star Trek fan. I’ll admit it publicly (stop giggling). So, I was curious as to who would be chosen to take the part George Takei originated. I would imagine every male Asian actor in Hollywood was fishing for the part.
The plot for the movie is a closely held secret, but it will be a prequel revolving around the early days of Kirk, Spock and the rest of the Star Trek crew.
Look for Cho as well in Harold and Kumar 2, maybe my second most anticipated movie of 2008.
