Comedian, Actor and Physician
Dr Ken Jeong definitely knows how to make an entrance. In a breakout role in The Hangover, Jeong memorably leaps from a car trunk stark naked, madly flailing a crowbar. After that part, Jeong burst onto the comedy scene on NBC’s Community and turns in several blockbuster movies. So it’s only fitting that the doctor-turned-actor makes his appearance in commercials for smartphone game Cookie Jam by barging Kool-Aid man-style through a wall into a hair salon clad in a cookie costume. He was even able to put his own spin on the role, after spitballing a few different antics for his character. The 30-second spot was good practice for Jeong’s current day-job, he says, where he is shooting his first sitcom in a starring role, ABC’s Dr. Ken, and he has found himself with more creative control than ever before.
