George Takei 'Guest Starring' In New 'Dick Tracy' Story

Celebrity and former "Star Trek" actor George Takei recently announced on his Facebook page that he will be guest-starring -- sort of -- in a new "Dick Tracy" storyline. Here's the word from George:

"Beginning last Sunday (Jan. 13), and continuing for about two months, the Dick Tracy comic strip on Sundays is featuring a storyline involving me and my husband Brad. I appear under the name "George Tawara." The story has a WWII internment connection, and we are truly honored to be a part of it."

This is not Takei's first comic book appearance (outside of "Star Trek" comics, that is) -- he also appeared in Archie's "Kevin Keller" #6 last month.
