Given the success of ‘Star Trek‘ and its upcoming sequel ‘Star Trek Into Darkness,’ we wouldn’t expect either film’s stars to follow up with regular TV careers. Yet, shortly following news that Karl Urban had joined FOX’s J.J. Abrams-produced drama ‘Human,’ we’ve learned that ‘Go On‘ star John Cho has booked yet another NBC role for upcoming pilot ‘Sleepy Hollow,’ written by ‘Star Trek’ writer Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, but how long will Cho stick around?

Yet another ‘Star Trek’ star is headed to the small screen, though to be fair he already maintained a regular role on NBC’s fledgling comedy ‘Go On.’ The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Sulu himself, John Cho will make an appearance in the peacock’s upcoming modern ‘Sleepy Hollow’ pilot, written by the ‘Star Trek’ writer-producer team of Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.

NBC’s ‘Sleepy Hollow’ project is a modern-day supernatural thriller based on the infamous legend, and starring British actor Tom Mison as Ichabod Crane, transported to the modern day. Cho will take the role of Officer Andy Dunn, a likable, compassionate and helpful Sleepy Hollow police who has Detective Abbie Archer’s (Nicole Beharie) back, but has more to him than meets the eye. The pilot also stars Orlando Jones and recent ‘Dexter‘ guest Katia Winter.

Kurtzman and Orci will write the pilot and executive produce, with Phil Iscove as writer and supervising producer. Acclaimed director Len Wiseman will helm the pilot episode.

Well, what say you? Are you excited to see John Cho in another NBC series, or does ‘Sleepy Hollow’ sound like a flop?
