Innocent pedestrians would be forgiven for crossing to the other side of the street at the sight of Ken Jeong. After all, the 43-year-old actor is best known for playing the criminally insane Leslie Chow in the successful "Hangover" trilogy. (This when he isn't playing the often equally insane Senor Chang on the NBC series "Community.") For many, the enduring image associated with Jeong's name is that moment in "The Hangover" when he jumped out of a car trunk, naked and screaming, and wrapped his legs around poor, innocent Bradley Cooper's neck. Yikes.
Jeong gets to say "toodaloo motherf***ers" to Mr. Chow in this weekend's "The Hangover Part III," acting as the movie's central antagonist and main provocateur. The man himself couldn't be further from his character, however: In conversation, the father of two is earnest and nice. He even maintains his medical license. (Jeong was a physician before he decided to pursue acting and comedy.)
We caught up with Jeong ahead of the release of "The Hangover Part III" to talk about the franchise's finale, Harry Potter and (the lack of) Mr. Chow impersonators. Get More »
The internet's really cool sometimes, guys. This is one of those sometimes.
Above we have a lost video from the nether years of the late '90s — 1998, specifically, which is a full (uses Macbook calculator) 15 years ago — featuring the now uber-famous Zach Galifianakis and the now pretty damn-famous Ken Jeong (whose movie, "The Hangover Part III," comes out next weekend) doing some standup comedy together at a coffee house in Los Angeles. It's a fun watch, especially considering the rapport these two obviously already had a full decade before they would star together in "The Hangover." Get More »
All good things must come to an end — unless, of course, you're talking about James Bond. But for every other beloved film franchise, there's inevitably a final installment. And for fans of one of the 21st century's most popular comedy series, that moment is here at last thanks to the brand new YouTube trailer for "The Hangover Part III."

WARNING: Somewhat NSFW.
Once upon a time (read: the '80s), movie fans could count on the fact that at some point, someone in the movie would randomly drop trou or rip off their shirt for no apparent reason whatsoever. And frankly, it was great. After all, why worry about things like plot or character development when you can have some good old-fashioned gratuitous nudity instead? Get More »
Before this, all we had was that hellishly vague synopsis which read, "This time, there's no wedding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off."
Thanks to the new vid, though, a couple of things are now clear. Get More »
Ken Jeong is ready to pump some iron — and steal some scenes.

Welcome to this installment of "When Character Actors Go Wild!" Today's subject: Mr. Ken Jeong.
The Korean-American stand-up comic with an actual medical degree has been stealing the spotlight with small parts in "Role Models," "Zookeeper," as "The Hangover" series' immortal Mr. Chow and with Señor Chang on NBC's "Community."
Now, according to The Wrap, Dr. Ken is going to stretch his high-energy Asian schtick to feature length (that was NOT a double entendre) by playing one of the leads in Lionsgate's "The Chung Factor." Get More »
Sure, Bumblebee and Optimus Prime can transform into awesome, world-dominating, larger-than-life robots, but the changeover everyone's talking about in "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" is the addition of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
The model-turned-actress, who replaces Megan Fox as Shia LaBeouf's onscreen girlfriend, had a great time in her first movie role, and seems especially gratuitous toward her co-star. "Shia held my hand through the whole of this like a baby," she says. "I was probably like the annoying little sister that just followed him around constantly and copied everything he did." Get More »
