Re: Takei On Casting Cho

Abrams was concerned because Cho was Korean-American and not Japanese-American and Abrams thought it might become an issue with fans.
Assuming fans even can tell the difference between a Korean and Japanese surname, why would they care, after decades of accepting human actors playing aliens, robots and interstellar dieties?

That attitude always throws me. Actors are paid to act. It is their job to pretend to be what they're not. But to think of Star Trek fans being narrow-minded bigots is the strangest thing of all.
