‘Go On’ Promotes John Cho to Series Regular, Unsurprisingly

John Cho’s star has been on the rise for years now, so it’s a little surprising if he takes any television roles, let alone on a permanent basis.  We’ve seen the ‘Harold & Kumar‘ and ‘Star Trek‘ star make appearances in shows like ‘How I Met Your Mother‘ and even keep regular roles in the now-cancelled ‘Flash-Forward’ but now it seems that NBC and ‘Go On‘ have made a wise investment in locking down John Cho for their new lineup. 

TVLine reports that the Matthew Perry vehicle ‘Go On’ has upped John Cho to series regular status, after initially appearing in a small role for the pilot episode.  Cho plays the radio station manager to Matthew Perry’s sports talk host Ryan King.  Given how in-demand Cho is these days, it should be seen as something of a no-brainer that NBC would attempt to lock the actor down for an increased presence.

‘Go On’ follows Perry as “irreverent, yet charming” sportscaster Ryan King, who finds solace in the members of his mandatory support group while trying to move on from the loss of his wife. The series also includes Laura Benanti, Suzy Nakamura, Allison Miller (‘Terra Nova‘), Khary Payton and Julie White (‘Transformers‘) as a widow stuck in the anger stage of the grieving process.

Earlier, it was announced with NBC’s fall 2012 schedule that ‘Go On’ would premiere early on August 8, to coincide with NBC’s coverage of the 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremonies, alongside ‘Weeds‘ star Justin Kirk vehicle ‘Animal Practice.’
