As mentioned in CelebWatch, John Cho (Star Trek’s new Sulu) is out promoting his new movie and we should expect a glut of Cho interviews in the next two week. Today Access Hollywood has a vid of Cho defending Trek’s secrecy, but he also compares his fandom for Star Trek and Star Wars (see below)
Cho comparing Star Trek to Star Wars
(when asked if he was a Trek fan when he was a kid)
I kind of became became a Star Trek fan because it was on late and I would catch it on re-runs. It is something I appreciated more every year because it is a very mature show. It is a very thoughtful and meditative show. Whereas when I was a kid it was much easier to love something like [Star Wars] right off the bat, with the light sabers and stuff. Star Trek is much more mature than that.
NOTE, at one point Cho says ‘Star Trek’ instead of ‘Star Wars’ but we’ll cut him some slack, it can be brutal during these press junkets.
As more Cho quotes and clips show up, we will try and consolidate them instead of running one article/per story but this is the only one for the day and I am headed out the door for Grand Slam.
