Kind of an Indictment of @nbcsnl That There has Never Been a Official Cast Member to Play Sulu in 42 Years

I guess there has been no Asian cast members on SNL in 42 Years. Maybe they will find someone in 42 more but probably not.
When it came to casting Hikaru Sulu, however, S.N.L. ran into a bit of an obstacle. In fact, in its 42-year history, there has never been an official cast member on Saturday Night Live who could play Sulu.
They added some blacks at long last in the last few years but Asians are still persona non grata for SNL.
