John Cho Also Joins the Cast of Len Wiseman's 'Total Recall' Remake

John Cho

We just recently got confirmation that Kate Beckinsale would again be working with her husband, Underworld director Len Wiseman for his remake of the 1990 sci-fi action hit Total Recall. In addition Jessica Biel and Bill Nighy had also joined the cast in two pivotal roles in the story. Now an actor who made waves in another sci-fi tentpole has signed on for the remake as EW reports Star Trek star John Cho will play McClane, the smooth-talking rep for the mind-messing company that tempts Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell) to implant fantastic memories into his brain but ends up inadvertently making him think he's a spy.

It's crazy to think that an actor like Cho, who made a career out of taking roles in raunchy comedies like Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle and a bit part as one of the MILF guys in the American Pie franchise, has now turned his career to an area that allows him to do films like Star Trek and now Total Recall. And it's not bad to be in the company of a cast that also includes Bryan Cranston as the film's villain. With this cast, I'm interested in seeing what Wiseman can do with a remake, even if Mars is no longer part of the equation. How about you?
