John Cho has been cast as Billy Eichner’s boyfriend on Hulu’s ‘Difficult People’
John Cho is playing gay again and this one should be a lot of fun.
The actor has been cast in a recurring role as Billy Eichner’s boyfriend during season three of the hilarious Hulu comedy Difficult People.
This comes on the heels of Cho’s Star Trek character of Sulu being revealed to be gay in last summer’s Star Trek Beyond which could have used more of Sulu and less non-stop fighting etc in my opinion.
Difficult People stars Eichner of Billy on the Street fame and his real-life pal Julie Klausner who created the series. They play two struggling and jaded New York comedians who pretty much hate everyone but each other.
Cho’s character of Todd is an advertising executive and is the first real boyfriend Eichner’s character has ever had.
Deadline Hollywood reports that Todd is ‘as much of a dick’ as Billy.
The pair connect after neither of them backs down from a prank war.
In subsequent episodes they try and navigate life as a couple which Billy will struggle with since Julie has always been his only soulmate.
Cho, 44, was previously best known for the Harold & Kumar and American Pie film franchises.
