Province: John Cho Looks Forward to Being Captain of Own Ship on Next @StarTrekMovie

John ChoJohn Cho will once again star as Sulu when “Star Trek into Darkness” opens nationwide on Thursday.

If another movie is made, Cho would like to take the controls himself

“It was fun to sit in the captain’s chair,” said Cho referring to a scene in the next movie. “Sulu, not in our movies but in the previous iterations, does get his own chair (and ship), so I hope that that is the case in ours as well … if we get that far,” he said in a recent interview with The Province,

If it happens, that would be quite a change for the man who played a stoner in the “Harold & Kumar” movies.

“As a kid I was so excited to see an Asian guy piloting a starship. It was so unusual at the time to see an Asian on television and so I always thought it was ahead of its time. And to have a multi-racial, multicultural crew going on a scientific mission, I thought it was — and I still think, sadly — it’s really progressive.

“It’s a very optimistic, beautiful vision of the human race, I think.”
