13 of 22: George Takei, known for his role as Sulu in the original 'Star Trek' series, is one of the 2012 contestants of Donald Trump's reality show 'The Celebrity Apprentice.' Takei is known for his sense of humor and multiple interviews on the X-rated 'Howard Stern Show' on Sirius XM radio. The actor has a large online following.

In December 2011, the actor released an online video calling for 'Star Peace' between fans of 'Star Trek' and 'Star Wars' (and a united front against 'Twilight').

Takei, who wed his longtime male partner in 2008 when California temporarily granted same-sex marriage licenses, also poked fun at Kim Kardashian, who filed for divorce from Kris Humphries on Oct. 31, 2011, after 72 days of marriage.
