John Cho, best-known to Star Trek fans as Sulu in Star Trek XI, has signed on for the latest American Pie sequel.

Park To Appear In New Play

Star Trek: Enterprise‘s Linda Park will be appearing in Love in American Times, a new play to debut next month.

Park will be appearing with J. Michael Flynn, who is best-known to Star Trek fans for his guest roles on Star Trek: The Next Generation (Zayner in The Hunted) and Star Trek: Enterprise (Nijil in The Aenar, United and Babel One. Mazarite official in Fallen Hero).

In Love in American Times, “The age-old tradition of matchmaking takes a contemporary twist when wealthy businessman Jack Heller (Flynn) has a pre-arranged meeting with sharp and accomplished Scarlett Mori-Yang (Park). Sparks aren’t the only things flying when these two driven individuals with intractable egos try to one-up each other on what could scarcely be called a ‘first date.’ With single-minded practicality and a pre-nuptial that looks more like articles of incorporation, it isn’t long before dysfunctional chaos breaks out. Is there room for love when there’s no shortage of money or power?”

Love in American Times will be playing at the San Jose Repertory Theatre in San Jose, California, from May 12-June 5. Tickets and more information can be obtained here.


Urban To Appear In Priest

Next month, the post-apocalyptic Priest will debut, featuring Star Trek XI‘s Karl Urban as the evil leader of the vampires.

Priest is the story of a world ravaged by war between humans and vampires.

According to Urban, Priest is more than just a vampire flick. “It’s a post-apocalyptic, futuristic, vampire western,” he said. “It’s about a man who chooses to go against the system, to walk away from his life and everything that he has worked and fought for in order to do what is morally right. That’s the heart of the film.”

Preparation for Priest included plenty of training for Urban. “…it was a massive physical undertaking,” said Urban. “Paul Bettany and I underwent extensive training for the fight and action sequences. Blood was drawn. We were fortunate to work with some extremely talented people whose job it was to make us look good.”

Urban enjoyed working on the movie. “It was fun,” he said. “I had a really great time working with Paul,” he said. “He’s a professional. He’s very charismatic, witty, and a real gentleman. Even when I accidentally crushed his fingers while shooting the epic train fight.”

Priest opens in the U.K. on May 11th and in the U.S. two days later.

It’s great news for some people, but globally it’s an instant population boom. Earth relies on people dying. Suddenly you’re affecting everyone on the planet. That’s where the Torchwood team comes in.”
