Last Thursday night in Los Angeles, a group of talented actors got together to bring the scripts created by area youth to life. The evening was part of the annual Young Storytellers Big Show. The program, based in New York and L.A., pairs mentors with low-income students to help them write original stories in the form of screenplays, which are acted out at a later date. Yahoo Celebrity attended the finale and took the opportunity to reminisce with the renowned comedic participants about the stories that they loved reading when they were young — as well as the books that are gracing their nightstands these days.

By revealing that Hikaru Sulu is gay, Star Trek Beyond boldly goes where no other installment in the classic sci-fi franchise has gone before. Speaking to Vulture’s E. Alex Chung, the 44-year-old actor disclosed that a scene was shot featuring Sulu and his husband (played by screenwriter Doug Jung) sharing a smooch. In the lengthy interview, Cho also speaks about his fears over reimagining Sulu as gay — not least of which was how such a twist would be taken by the man who originated the character, George Takei. “He’s a gay actor that played a straight part and crafted a straight character,” said Cho.
Star Trek Beyond hopes to give people some escapism and perhaps even provide a little hope that our future will be better than our present. “This is a universe which is full of hope because it suggests that we live on past our petty grievances and the idiotic squabbles that we find ourselves amid today and actually start working together for the greater good, as it were,” star and writer Simon Pegg noted. “Star Trek has always been, at its core, an optimistic and, I think, very uplifting and positive thing,” producer J.J. Abrams told Yahoo Movies.
Star Trek Beyond has a large and impressive cast already, but with more sequels comes the opportunity for new cast members. “Morgan Freeman as the voice of God?” Chris Pine suggested. When his co-star Zachary Quinto pointed out that Freeman’s been there and done that, Pine offered, “Maybe the GPS device on the Enterprise? ‘Turn left on the second star.’” Then to mix things he up, he suggested Marlon Brando from The Island of Dr. Moreau.
Simon Pegg argues that in some ways it’s a question of canon between the original universe and the one created with J.J. Abrams’ 2009 reboot
At London premiere, Zachary Quinto, Justin Lin, express support for decision despite pushback from actor George Takei, who played the character originally
On Thursday the Herald Sun reported that John Cho’s character in Star Trek Beyond, Hikaru Sulu, is gay. Cho himself said it was intended by the movie’s writers, Simon Pegg and Justin Lin, as a tribute to the original series’ Sulu, George Takei.
In the summer of 1968, George Takei attended a pool party at the Hollywood Hills home of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry. The actor, then 31 and famous for his role as Hikaru Sulu, helmsman of the USS Enterprise, swam up to his boss and “had a conversation with him, a very private one. I was still closeted, so I did not want to come out to him.”
John Cho, the actor who plays Sulu in the J.J. Abrams film reboots of Star Trek, says the helmsman will be revealed as gay in the upcoming Star Trek Beyond. “I liked the approach, which was not to make a big thing out it, which is where I hope we are going as a species, to not politicize one’s personal orientations,” Cho told Australia’s Herald Sun. The paper reports that the decision to give Sulu a husband and a daughter was a nod to George Takei, who played the original Hikaru Sulu. John Cho’s Sulu will be the first gay canonical Star Trek character. Back in 2011, J.J. Abrams told New Now Next that he would consider putting a gay character into the franchise.
