From impressive supporting roles in comedies like Knocked Up, Step Brothers and Pineapple Express, Ken Jeong got his big break as wild man Mr. Chow and made his debut in The Hangover series in spectacularly bold fashion: he jumped out of the trunk of a car, naked.
Since then, we've seen his mad, foul-mouthed and quotable character engage in more bad behaviour in Todd Phillips' 2011 follow-up and as the loopy Señor Ben Chang on TV's "Community" now with a heftier story line for the devilish Chow, Jeong gets more dialogue to chew on, more stunts and more shocking antics to offend audiences while they laugh their faces off.
We hit the red carpet at Toronto's Scotiabank theatre to chat with Jeong about what it's like saying goodbye to his favourite character and what we can expect from the Wolfpack's last call in The Hangover Part III, opening May 23.

If you've seen 2009's The Hangover, there's no forgetting Tyler (a.k.a. Carlos), the wide-eyed baby boy who tags along with Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms in Las Vegas. And there's no mistaking him four years later in The Hangover Part III, in theaters Friday. "The cheeks kinda give it away, right?" his mom, Carrie Holmquist, jokes to People. In honor of the third installment (the last of the series, promises director Todd Phillips), we give you a trio of little known, fun facts about the littlest member of the franchise. 1. He Was Surrounded By The Ladies In Vegas Little ladies, »

New Delhi, May 21: The third installment of "The Hangover" series will take the lead characters of the movie back to Las Vegas, where the plot of the first movie was sketched.
Directed by Todd Phillips, the movie will take a two-year leap and the lead characters Stu, Phill, Doug and Alan will be seen visiting the sin city and promises fun, panic, confusion and hangover, said a statement.
The epic character of Leslie Chow, played by Ken Jeong will be seen behind the bars.

It looks like the Wolfpack managed to make it out of Vegas alive, because they took on L.A. last night (May 20). Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, and, yes, Mr. Chow, aka Ken Jeong, were all on hand to celebrate the epic conclusion of Todd Phillips's tale of debauchery, otherwise known as "The Hangover: Part III." Every member of the pack looked ready for action, including the ladies of the group, Heather Graham and Jamie Chung. Graham wore a low-cut, emerald green gown, and Chung rocked a low-cut, black and lacy number. As for the men, Helms and Galifianakis kept it classic in suit jackets and ties, while Cooper took a little fashion risk and opted for a burnt orange-colored suit. On anyone else we would hate it, but Phil can do no wrong. "Part III" brings the Wolfpack back to Las Vegas, but this time around there is no wedding, »

When Todd Phillips' The Hangover hit theaters in 2009, no one was anticipating that a modestly-budgeted, R-rated comedy would wind up with a worldwide gross of more than $467 million. Two years later, The Hangover Part II did even better, grossing $586 million with Phillips promising, even before the sequel was released , that the franchise would be wrapped up with a third and final Wolf Pack adventure. This week, it all ends as The Hangover Part III reunites Phillips with leading men Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis (along with quite a few other returning cast members from both previous films). ComingSoon.net sat down with Phillips in the place where it all began -- Caesars Palace Las Vegas Hotel & Casino -- to discuss the end of the series, what has »
If you speak to just about anyone over the age of 30, they’ll tell you that hangovers get worse with age. Well, on this evidence, they’re right, as we get ready to step back into Todd Phillips’ The Hangover franchise, with the third and – thankfully – final addition to the celebrated comedy.
Having survived a series of inexplicable events in both Las Vegas and Thailand, it seems that for close friends Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Doug (Justin Bartha) and of course Alan (Zach Galifianakis), it’s time to settle for a quieter life, and steer clear of trouble. However, when randomly ambushed by crime lord Marshall (John Goodman), it seems that, once again, trouble has found them. Marshall has handpicked the collective to get hold of fugitive – and absolute nutcase – Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong), who stole $25million worth of gold from him. As Alan and Chow kept in »

When this movie begins in the middle of an over-the-top prison riot in Bangkok that leads to a crazy "Shawshank Redemption" joke, it's the first sign that "The Hangover Part III" is not just business as usual. The first film, written by Jon Lucas & Scott Moore, featured a very clever hook, and when Craig Mazin, Scot Armstrong & Todd Phillips wrote the script for the second movie, they mirrored the structure of the first film closely. When I spoke with Phillips recently, it was obvious that he loved the reaction of people who were bothered by that, and at first, »

Five minutes into “The Hangover Part III,” a giraffe is gruesomely decapitated by a freeway overpass. While this unfortunate event is ultimately tangential to the film’s plot, it nonetheless marks its best shot at leaving a lasting legacy, with the phrase “beheading the giraffe” perhaps someday supplanting “jumping the shark” as the cliche of choice to mark a franchise’s official descent into pitiable pointlessness. Nearly bereft of laughs, this final “Hangover” should nonetheless generate lucrative business due to simple brand recognition and a desire to see the old gang one last time as they dutifully, distractedly wind down the clock.
Once the highest-grossing R-rated comedy ever made, the first “Hangover” was one of the best surprises of 2009; a thoroughly modern callback to the great politically incorrect bro comedies of the 1980s, enlivened with a novel narrative twist. A 2011 sequel reeked of laziness, reprising the original’s every beat with mechanical obligation, »

I think it's kind of amazing that Todd Phillips is now the guy behind the biggest comedy franchise of all time. Not because I don't think he's capable of it, but more because of the Todd Phillips I originally met many years ago at this point. The Phillips I got to know at first was so far outside the mainstream that even imagining him working on a studio comedy seemed unlikely. What I find really impressive about the way he's managed his career is how he's kept his voice intact while working on bigger and bigger films. When I saw "Hated: »

Star Trek Into Darkness weekend box office: Downright disappointing domestic debut (photo: Benedict Cumberbatch as Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness) J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness, featuring Chris Pine as Captain Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Spock, and Benedict Cumberbatch as Khan, took in an estimated $22 million at 3,668 North American venues on Friday, according to studio figures found at Box Office Mojo. Is that good or bad? Well, let’s just say that this weekend Star Trek Into Darkness should end up collecting approximately $20-28 million less at the domestic box office than early estimates indicated. (Check out comparisons between the Thursday opening of Star Trek Into Darkness and the more impressive debuts of other movie sequels.) Star Trek Into Darkness vs. Star Trek: Opening-weekend box office Star Trek Into Darkness will likely gross at most $83-85 million by Sunday evening, and $70-72 million over the three-day weekend.

Phil, Stu and Doug throw a final bash in a Red Band trailer for Todd Phillips’ “The Hangover 3″. It’s nothing you haven’t seen before, but this time you get all the cuss words included in your trailer. Enjoy, enjoyers. It’s been two years. Phil, Stu and Doug are happily living uneventful lives at home. Tattoos have been lasered off, files purged. The last they heard from disaster-magnet Leslie Chow, he’d been tossed into a Thai prison and, with him out of the way, the guys have very nearly recovered from their nights prowling the seamy side of Las Vegas in a roofie’d haze, and being kidnapped, shot at, and chased by drug-dealing mobsters in Bangkok.The only member of the Wolfpack who’s not content is Alan. Still lacking a sense of purpose, the group’s black sheep has ditched his meds and given in »
Ken Jeong is having a nice couple of weeks. First, the doctor-turned-actor's television series, "Community," was surprisingly renewed for a fifth season. And next week, the third and final installment of the hugely successful "Hangover" series will be released -- featuring a substantially larger role for Jeong in his criminal, scoundrel role as Mr. Chow. We caught up with an excited Jeong about the end of "The Hangover," the future of "Community" and his dreams for a Mr. Chow spinoff movie.
Congratulations on the renewal of "Community."
Oh, thank you so much. I'm excited. I'm just really excited and pleasantly surprised. You know, I really didn't know what the chances of renewal would be. I really didn't know. That's really a testament to the fanbase, the devoted fanbase, that the show has.
Do they give you any hints on renewal either way before the announcement?
We get our information probably off of the Internet, »
