Allow Twitter to reimagine John Cho as the star of blockbusters (and your heart)

Take a look at John Cho's IMDb page and try not to get too depressed: Cho is arguably the biggest Asian-American male actor, and he's getting guest roles on shows like House of Lies and BoJack Horseman, where he voices "Lead Improv-er." But hey, you've got to eat, and at least Cho has Star Trek Beyond coming out later this year. But couldn't you imagine John Cho in so many other roles? As a quadriplegic romantic lead for instance? Or a dinosaur wrangler? Or a super-sexy spy?
