'Star Trek' Cast Gathered at Chris Pine's Home to Mourn Anton Yelchin's Death

Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and Zoe Saldana step out for dinner at Madeo restaurant on Friday night (July 15) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The cast of Star Trek Beyond – including John Cho, Simon Pegg, and Karl Urban, as well as producer JJ Abrams and Zoe‘s husband Marco Perego – went out for a dinner following their press junket.

Chris recently revealed that he gathered the cast at his home to mourn the death of their co-star Anton Yelchin.

“It’s been a very difficult few weeks,” Chris told TV Week. “It’s hard to talk about; hard to encapsulate someone’s life in some sort of sound bite or tidbit. We hung out at my house and it was just nice to have the family around to help deal with a loss like this and experience mourning at such an intense level.”

Simon Pegg 'Respectfully' Disagrees With George Takei Calling Gay Sulu 'Unfortunate'

Simon Pegg has responded to George Takei‘s criticizing comments about the decision to make his old character Sulu – now played by John Cho – openly gay in the new movie Star Trek Beyond.

“I’m delighted that there’s a gay character,” George expressed. “Unfortunately, it’s a twisting of Gene‘s creation, to which he put in so much thought. I think it’s really unfortunate.”

“I have huge love and respect for George Takei, his heart, courage and humor are an inspiration,” Simon, who stars as Scotty and also co-wrote the latest addition, wrote in a statement (via THR). “However, with regards to his thoughts on our Sulu, I must respectfully disagree with him.”

“He’s right, it is unfortunate, it’s unfortunate that the screen version of the most inclusive, tolerant universe in science fiction hasn’t featured an LGBT character until now,” Simon added. “We could have introduced a new gay character, but he or she would have been primarily defined by their sexuality, seen as the ‘gay character’, rather than simply for who they are, and isn’t that tokenism? I like this idea because it suggests that in a hypothetical multiverse, across an infinite matrix of alternate realities, we are all LGBT somewhere. Whatever dimension we inhabit, we all just want to be loved by those we love (and I love George Takei). I can’t speak for every reality but that must surely true of this one. Live long and prosper.”

Sulu is Gay in 'Star Trek Beyond,' George Takei Calls it 'Unfortunate'

George Takei has reacted to the news that his classic character Sulu is revealed to be gay in the new movie Star Trek Beyond.

John Cho plays the role in the current film franchise and he said the character development is a nod to Takei, who is openly gay in real life.

“I liked the approach, which was not to make a big thing out of it, which is where I hope we are going as a species, to not politicize one’s personal orientations,” John told the Herald Sun.

While most people seem to be excited over the first openly gay character in the franchise, George has called it “unfortunate” as it was not part of creator Gene Roddenerry‘s original vision.

“He was a strong supporter of LGBT equality,” George told THR. “But he said he has been pushing the envelope and walking a very tight rope — and if he pushed too hard, the show would not be on the air.”

“I’m delighted that there’s a gay character,” he added. “Unfortunately, it’s a twisting of Gene’s creation, to which he put in so much thought. I think it’s really unfortunate.”

At the premiere, Karl opened up about the death of his co-star Anton Yelchin.

“It’s bittersweet with the passing of Anton,” Karl expressed. “It’s devastating losing someone in your family. This feels like it should be a time for celebration not just of the film but of him, his extraordinary talent and the beautiful man he was. I’m having a difficult time coming to grips with talking about him in the past tense — it’s very raw and very painful.”

FYI: Zachary is wearing a Bottega Veneta look. John is wearing a Topman light gray three piece suit at the premiere and a Topman jacket and shirt with J Brand trousers at the photo call.
