FlashForward Renewed

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

John Cho will have work for some time to come as FlashForward, the show on which he is currently appearing as Demetri Noh, has been granted a full season.

ABC announced that the show has been picked up for a full slate of twenty-two episodes. FlashForward has done very well, becoming the first show since 2004 to beat Survivor in the key adult 18-49 demographic.

FlashForward has led the pack when it comes to DVR usage. Over the first week, it was the number one show in DVR playback, gaining two million viewers as a result of that format. Other shows noted for their strong DVR playbacks are Lost (to which FlashForward is often compared) and The Office.

Cho: FlashForward

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009

What will happen to John Cho‘s role in FlashForward when it comes time to film Star Trek XII?

Cho, who plays FBI agent Demetri Noh, might have to face the possibility of a schedule conflict, but for now, he’s enjoying his new role. “You know for me as an actor it’s kind of a unique situation not knowing where the character is going,” he said. “Not having a full script. Typically in a movie you know how the movie ends, and you sort of map out your performance. This one we’re kind of winging it, because the actors don’t know what’s going on from episode to episode. It’s a very unique scenario, but it’s exciting.”

Bana, Cho, Greenwood And Yelchin On First Impressions

Thursday, May 7th, 2009

Four of the Star Trek XI actors explained how they were initially attracted by the Star Trek XI script or their specific characters and what they did to prepare for their roles.

As reported by Firstshowing.net, Bruce Greenwood was attracted to taking on the role of Pike because of the problem his character faced. “Well he’s got this tremendous dilemma of having to…having an instinct about somebody who to all appearances is going to let him down but his gut is to follow his instinct in spite of the way the kid’s behaving,” said Greenwood. “So there’s a tremendous father-son dynamic to that dilemma.

Cho: Sulu Needed To Kick Some Booty

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

As reported by TrekMovie.com, Cho was both nervous and excited about his version of Sulu. “I was thrilled he was out of his chair and getting into the mix,” said Cho. “If I had one complaint about the old show, as an Asian-American, I wanted to see Sulu get involved a little more and kick some booty. And this is it, this is happening. I can’t believe I am fulfilling my own personal dream and having Sulu shaking it.” (more…)
