You may not believe it, but Ken Jeong from NBC’s Community and The Hangover Movie Empire started off his career as a DOCTOR! But with more than 60 TV and movie credits his medicine days seem to be long gone. Rumor has it that he’s getting a whopping $5 million dollars to play the evil, yet loveable “Mr. Chow” in The Hangover Part 3.
Recently when on a plane a passenger needed a doctor and Jeong came to the rescue. The passenger instantly recognized him from The Hangover, but let Jeong help. He just renewed his medical license for another year.
Ken told usatoday.com, “When I was a doctor, comedy was my golf. Now it's the other way around."
