Star Trek’s John Cho was the guest on the latest Kevin Pollak Chat Show web-series. The actor talks for two hours with Pollak about a wide range of issues, including about half an hour on the subject of becoming the new Sulu for JJ Abrams Star Trek. (And yes, Pollack shows off his inner Trekkie by breaking into his Shatner impression at one point). Watch it below
VIDEO: John Cho on landing role in Star Trek, first Trek con and more
On the latest Kevin Pollak Chat Show (below), John Cho talked for almost half an hour about Star Trek, covering the casting process, fight training, meeting George Takei, working with JJ Abrams, the world publicity tour, his upcoming Star Trek con appearance and more. There was brief talk about the sequel, but Cho showed he wasn’t in the know by asking Pollack’s producer (and apparent friend of Damon Lindelof) if he knew anything about the next Trek. When asked if there was an "actual schedule" for the sequel, Cho said "no."
Watch the video below, the Star Trek section starts at 1:36:25 (video should automatically jump to the right spot)
NOTE: Cho mentions that he first heard of the Star Trek project from a journalist, which got him to instruct his agent to get him an audition. That journalist happens to be yours truly, who talked to Cho about playing Sulu way back in late 2006.
