George Takei and partner plan to wed in September

By MICHAEL WEINFELD, Associated Press Writer





WASHINGTON - George Takei, best known for playing Sulu on "Star Trek," will never forget the first time he saw Brad Altman, the man he plans to marry, more than two decades ago.

They were working out in a running club and he couldn't take his eyes off Altman, who had a "lean, tightly muscled" body, the 71-year-old actor told AP Radio in an interview.

Takei said he asked Altman to help him train for a marathon, they fell in love, and now they've been living together for 21 years.

Altman said he proposed by getting down on one knee in their kitchen while Takei was eating a sandwich after seeing on TV that the California Supreme Court had legalized same-sex marriage. It surprised Takei, who thought he would be the one who popped the question.

They bought each other turquoise and silver wedding rings.

Takei and Altman plan to marry Sept. 14 in the Democracy Forum at the Japanese National Museum in Los Angeles.

Walter Koenig, who played Chekov in "Star Trek," will be the best man and Nichelle Nichols, who played Uhura, will be the matron of honor. Castmate Leonard Nimoy will be among the 200 guests, but probably not William Shatner. Takei has said Shatner didn't treat him and most of the cast very well.

Takei, who had a recurring role on NBC's "Heroes" last year, and Altman plan to honeymoon for a month in South America.

As for what they'll wear on their big day, Altman said they'll both walk down the aisle in white tuxedoes, which seemed to catch Takei off-guard.

"Well, now that you've announced it on the air, I guess it's settled," he said.


Mr Sulu is the ghey!

Like 10 years ago or about 10 years ago?

Instead of stuffing gerbils up his rectum, he stuffs trebbles up in there.

Nichelle Nichols, who played Uhura, will be the matron of honor.


Since there is a maid of honor, which one is the bitch (wife)?

Hell! Even watching the original TV run in the 60's as a kid I thought there was something 'odd' about Sulu.

That being said, the sexual preference of a 71 year old man has a fair chance of being purely academic, anyway.


And what the heck...he's still a great actor and he's not trying to jump in bed with ME, so...whatever. Have a nice life! But no pics, and no wedding night details, PLEASE.

+1, Shatner squirmed all over the place because of Sulu during that roast. It was hilarious.

Good for him. I hope their marriage is legal and stays legal.
