Star Trek' actor George Takei and husband Brad Altman to appear on 'Newlywed Game'

Actor George Takei and husband Brad Altman are going where no gay couple has gone before: "The Newlywed Game."

Takei and Altman will appear in a special celebrity episode of the show, which starts its second season in a revamped format on Oct. 12, the Game Show Network said.

"George and I are thrilled. It's pretty historic for us," Altman told the Daily News. "It's going to be a great experience for both of us to see how well we really know each other after 22 years together."
