Cho will play a “rising investment exec who is starting his own firm” and wants Bateman’s character to join him.

Duke will play an Eagle Scout on a “secret revenge mission to find the man who bilked him.”

The Identity Thief is produced by Scott Stuber and Pamela Abdy, and executive produced by Peter Morgan. The comedy will be directed by Seth Gordon.

  1. I hope he does well. I like Cho okay in other roles, but I think he’s a terrible Sulu. He does not fit.
    He doesn’t have the charisma and the bravado that Sulu exhibited from the beginning. Go watch “WNMHGB” again and watch his “Hey baby, I’M a BOTANIST!” attitude. I can maybe overlook the voice, I can try to give the FOLDING! KATANA!!! a pass, but Cho is very quiet and self-effacing as Sulu, and it just doesn’t work.
