John Cho — Sulu in 2009′s Star Trek — talked with IGN about a few of his upcoming television projects.
As expected, the conversation steered towards the Star Trek sequel, due out next summer.
When asked how he feels about Star Trek Into Darkness:
“It was a lot of fun. I think the second one may be magnificent, baby. You can quote me on that. I think it may be amazing.”
On what makes the sequel different from the first:
“I think this movie is different from the first one in that we can get started on the story right away. It feels to me — having read it and having done it — like a more expansive story because we can devote more screen time to it.”
Cho even compliments cast newcomers Benedict Cumberbatch and Alice Eve:
“They’re whip-smart, amazing people. They’re so good, such good actors.”
