According to TV Guide, NBC has cast George Takei, who played Sulu on the original Star Trek television series, to play the role of Hiro's father on Heroes:

As exclusively reported by TV Guide magazine, none other than George Takei has been cast as the father of Heroes' Star Trek-obsessed Hiro. "It was one of those lightning-bolt ideas," series creator Tim Kring tells TV Guide. Adds Masi Oka, who plays Hiro, "This is absolutely brilliant! I just hope I get to say, 'Dad! Sulu is my hero, not you!'"

No word on when Takei will first appear on Heroes, which airs on NBC on Mondays.
