Cho Starring In Searching

1 min read

John Cho, Star Trek Beyond‘s Sulu, will be seen in Searching where he will be in the “first mainstream contemporary thriller headlined by an Asian-American actor.

“I accept that it’s a big deal,” said Cho. “I’m excited. I haven’t thought of that, but what is meaningful to me is seeing the image of a whole, loving Asian-American family [more] than anything else. It’s very rare in movies. The image of that is much more startling than it should be. It was surprising to me how powerful it was. I want the future to be where it’s completely normal to see an Asian-American family on-screen.”

Searching, due out August 24, is the story of David Kim (Cho), who is a “doting husband” to Pam (Sara Sohn) and a “caring father” to sixteen-year-old daughter Margot (Michelle La). “When Margot suddenly vanishes, an investigation led by a detective (Debra Messing) begins. With no clues, David decides to search his daughter’s laptop computer.”
