George Takei is Hiro’s Dad in Heroes!

TV Guide reports that NBC has made a perfect casting choice for the role of Hiro’s dad in “Heroes”:

As exclusively reported by TV Guide magazine, none other than George Takei has been cast as the father of Heroes’ Star Trek-obsessed Hiro. “It was one of those lightning-bolt ideas,” series creator Tim Kring tells TV Guide. Adds Masi Oka, who plays Hiro, “This is absolutely brilliant! I just hope I get to say, ‘Dad! Sulu is my hero, not you!'”

“Heroes” airs Mondays at 9/8c.
