Washington, Jan 11 (ANI): George Takei, who played Captain Sulu on the popular television show and movie series “Star Trek”, has been cast in Nickelodeon’s new live-action series ‘Supah Ninjas’.
The half-hour comedy follows three kids who are drafted into a secret world of crime fighting after Mike Fukanaga (Ryan Potter), an average high school student, discovers he is descended from a long line of ninjas.
According to TVGuide.com, Takei plays Mike’s recently deceased grandfather, who appears as an interactive hologram to guide and train the team of “Supah Ninjas” along the way.
“The grandfather has the serious task of instructing the next generation of ninjas, but he also has a lot of funny moments and I find that a refreshing take on the traditional teacher-student relationship,” Fox News quoted Takei as saying.
A preview of Supah Ninjas will air Monday, Jan. 17 at 9/8c. (ANI)
