Cho: Sulu In Star Trek 2

Monday, September 12th, 2011

John Cho was satisfied with his work in Star Trek XI, and the actor who played Sulu has an opinion on what he’d like to see for the character in the next Star Trek movie.

There was plenty for Cho to do in Star Trek XI, which was gratifying, as he didn’t expect a big role in the movie. “I was happy,” he said. “When I took the role, I hadn’t read the script, even. I just knew that I wanted to be a part of it. I wasn’t sure how it’d juggle out. There were just a lot of characters to get to, it was a big story to tell, and I wasn’t expecting a huge arc.”

And this is it, this is happening. I can’t believe I am fulfilling my own personal dream and having Sulu shaking it.” (more…)

Cho: Under Pressure

Monday, April 13th, 2009

Taking on the role of Sulu for John Cho meant worrying about honoring Star Trek and the fans.

And I felt pressure to honor the Star Trekkers, the fans, to do right by them. They’re very passionate about this mythology and you don’t want to mess with that.” (more…)

Cho On “Changing Up” Sulu

Monday, March 9th, 2009

John Cho’s respect for both George Takei and the character of Sulu will keep Cho from making too many changes in the character, minus the inevitable ones due to a change in actors.

As reported by Sci Fi Wire, Cho jokingly promised to make Sulu “Sexy, very sexy.” All kidding aside, Cho explained what he felt drove Sulu in Star Trek XI, and how Cho intended to portray the helmsman. “George’s Sulu was a veteran, and he was always in control of the ship,” said Cho. “And…since this is his first mission, he’s thrust into the position of helmsman by accident, and all of these things are happening. He’s not supposed to be on the ship; he’s not supposed to be doing all this stuff. I wanted this Sulu to be a little bit more innocent, a little bit younger and a little bit more caught off guard by all of this stuff. And I felt like it would be a nice way to begin that arc, since we’re going back in time.”
