John Cho Network

John’s first episode of Difficult People is available to stream on Hulu as of today! John plays advertising agency executive Todd Ross who gets into a fight with Billy’s character after using his headshot for medical ads without his permission. John’s time on screen was a bit too short for my taste but the character definitely made an impression and in such a short time, it’s already one of my favorite John’s roles.

Here’s a sneak peek (and a bit spoiler-y) scene from the episode that I couldn’t help but post. And then head to the gallery to check the episode stills and high quality screencaptures!

“This is typically not the kind of place I like,” says John Cho. He takes off his sunglasses to better appreciate the rotunda on the second floor of the Central Library in downtown Los Angeles. It’s a breathtaking space—vast yet cozy, with a vibrantly painted ceiling dating back to its construction in 1926 and a chandelier depicting the zodiac that spills amber light throughout the massive dome. This is the 45-year-old actor’s first visit to the library, despite having lived in LA since he was in eighth grade, and he admits to being impressed: “I don’t like Rome or Beijing because their buildings always communicate power over the citizens,” explains Cho, who’s dressed simply in jeans and a white T-shirt. “But I like the idea that this is where the books are, and we’re going to build a grand place for them.” [More at Source]

  

John Cho has close to 100 acting credits on the Internet Movie Database, but only a handful of those are lead roles. Despite his association with two successful franchises (as Harold in the “Harold & Kumar” stoner comedies, and Sulu in the ongoing “Star Trek” saga), and despite his effortless charm, good looks and innate likability, Cho is rarely considered a genuine movie star.

That’s one reason his turn at the center of the indie drama “Columbus,” which premiered at Sundance to strong reviews earlier this year and is now playing in limited release, feels so overdue. Whether Hollywood wants to recognize it or not, Cho is indeed a genuine movie star.

“It felt like a little bit of a dream,” Cho said during a recent interview in Los Angeles. “Projects this small and this unusual are hard to make real, but it happened. All of a sudden we got the call and I was in Columbus.” [More at source]

Hey everyone, a while ago I got an email tip from Km (@KamalaMetamorph) who informed me that John has a small part on something called “Backwash”.

For a while I wasn’t sure what it was, then I found out that Backwash was a web series that John filmed in 2010 but didn’t make it online till earlier last year thanks to Crackle. Crackle which was nice enough to put it on it’s website for free but Geo-blocked it from the rest of the world. John had 2 small scenes in it, you can watch them below then check out the gallery for screencaptures.

   

Hey everyone,

Life have been so busy and I missed John’s birthday and I feel so bad about it Yesterday was John’s 45 birthday and John Cho Network admin would like to wish John a belated birthday and hope he got to spend it with his friends and family. To celebrate John’s birthday, we put up a new layout on the site (we kept the old header as we’re so in love with it) but the brand new layout was done by my dear friend Jasper, hope you guys like it as much as I do!

We also updated the gallery with some missing photoshoots, make sure to follow us on twitter (@johnchonet) for an extra gift celebrating John’s birthday.

   

I’ve updated the gallery with photos of John attending the premiere and after party of “Literally, Right Before Aaron” that premiered in Tribeca Film Festival a couple of days ago.

   

I’ve updated the gallery with another 2006 movie from John Cho titled “Bickford Shmeckler’s Cool Ideas”.
