Another actor has been added to the cast of J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek. John Cho (‘Harold & Kumar‘) has been cast as the character of Sulu, the USS Enterprise’s helmsman.
The casting news was scooped by TrekMovie.com, and it’s now been confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter.
This leaves the characters of James T. Kirk (Chris Pine has been offered the role), Christopher Pike, Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy and Kirk’s parents as the only remaining lead roles yet to be cast.
Considering production begins on the film this coming November, the casting announcement for Kirk (and the other roles) is likely very close.
