Actor, producer and writer Ken Jeong, known for his scene stealing abilities, has established himself as one of today's top comedic stars. In May of 2009, Jeong appeared as the Asian-mobster "Mr. Chow" in the sleeper-hit comedy The Hangover also starring Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis, which earned him 3 Teen Choice Nominations and an MTV Movie Award. The film was the highest-grossing R-rated comedy to date, with over $467 million worldwide, only to be trumped by The Hangover 2, which grossed $581 million worldwide.
Since his feature film debut playing the doctor in Knocked Up in 2007, Jeong has gone on to a number of memorable roles in a series of successful comedies. In 2008, Jeong had his first major role opposite Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott as the villain in Judd Appatow's Role Models, which went on to gross $219 million at the worldwide box office. That same year he also appeared in the cult comedy hits Pineapple Express and Step Brothers.
In television, Jeong was mostly recently seen starring on ABC's Dr. Ken, which he also created, wrote for and was an Executive Producer. He also was a series regular on the critically acclaimed NBC show Community from 2009-2015. The cast won a TV Guide Award for Favorite Ensemble in 2012. In 2015, Jeong directed an ESPN 30 for 30 documentary Student Athlete and he also produced the Sundance award winning film Advantageous, which received a Film Independent Spirit Award nomination.
Jeong spends a lot of his off time volunteering with Stand Up 2 Cancer, which is a cause very dear to his heart.
He currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife and twin daughters
