Hails from: Los Angeles, CA (via Seoul, Korea)
Known for: Being one half (the “Harold” of “Harold and Kumar…”) of our favorite stoner flick duo of all time, the only worthy reign-taker of the Hikaru Sulu role in J.J. Abrams’ s forthcoming Star Trek flick, Jen’s and my long-long-longstanding crush.
Cho recently spoke out against Proposition 8–as a new father, an immigrant, a proud American, an Asian-American, a person who believes in the ideals of equality, and as a voter. Most importantly, as you will see in the video, Cho speaks about this issue as a man–a real man in every sense of the word (especially if the word is in our book).
If only everyone had the balls to be real men.
Show you do, Californians, by Voting No on Proposition 8 tomorrow.
William Shatner took a shatner on George Takei this week by posting an interview on YouTube discussing why he wasn’t invited to Takei’s recent wedding. Among the things Captain James T. Kirk said about Sulu were:
“There is such a sickness there. It’s so patently [mispronounced 'pay-tently' --ed.] obvious that there is a psychosis there.”
“You would think he had this epiphany and say – because he and I don’t have many years left in this world – ‘I wish him well. I’m so happy that I wish him well.’ But instead what he does is he makes this big deal about not inviting me to his wedding. If I was such a terrible force in his life – even some 40-odd years later, because I’ve not seen him – that I effect his marriage where he has to isolate it, what kind of sickness is going on in the man?”
“It’s sad. I feel nothing but pity for him.”
You can watch the full interview below:
In response, Takei told Entertainment Tonight that he had in fact invited Shatner to the wedding, calling The Shat’s video rant, “silliness.” And we’re inclined to believe George. Because he may not know how to sing fer shit, but he seems a whole lot less sick and psychotic than the puffy, suspenders-wearing, sausage-fingered weirdo-who-doth-protest-too-much in that video.
Page Six reported yesterday that Hank Azaria, who does multiple voices for The Simpsons, went on an internet talk show recently and claimed that The Simpsons no longer employs George Takei to do voiceovers because “he ‘creeped out the staff’ and kept calling one of the interns ‘sweetie.’”
HAYDEN: OMG. I am so uncomfortable right now.
GEORGE: What’s wrong, sweetie?
HAYDEN: It’s like creepy-crawlies are under my skin.
GEORGE: Oh, sweetie, you poor thing.
Is George Takei creepy? Hmm…I feel like we’re not getting the full story here from Page Six (imagine that). But about George calling one of the interns “sweetie,” isn’t that, for a gaysian, like, um…what am I trying to, um, say here…um…oh right!
Isn’t that like me saying, “um”?
