Star Trek‘s George Takei will guest star in Fresh Off The Boat, a comedy from ABC.
On Fresh Off the Boat, based on Chef Eddie Huang‘s memoir of the same name, “it’s the ’90s and twelve-year-old, hip-hop loving Eddie (Hudson Yang) just moved to suburban Orlando from DC’s Chinatown with his parents (Randall Park and Constance Wu). It’s culture shock for his immigrant family in this comedy about pursuing the American Dream.”
Takei will take on the role of Bernard, “a charming ESL instructor for whom Grandma Huang (Lucille Soong) has a sweet spot.”
The episode in which Takei guest stars is filming now, and will air in late October “during a Halloween-themed episode.”
