Yesterday after the Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay screening, actor John Cho was nice enough to do a Q&A with the audience. I felt special because I already interviewed him one-on-one a while back along with Harold & Kumar creators, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg (click here to refresh your memory).

Wasn’t that really braggy of me?

Anyways, Cho was sporting some sort of ace bandage or cast on his right arm and he admitted to the audience that he got an injury on the set of Star Trek.

For some reason, this really excited me – not in an arousing sort of way, but in a J.J. Abrams sort of way. I am not even a Trekkie, but the fact that Cho is making SO many strides in the industry makes me smile and gives me hope as the future first ever Filipino American to win the Academy Award for “Best Original Screenplay.”
