He is best known for his roles as Ben Chang on the critically acclaimed NBC/Yahoo! comedy series Community and gangster Leslie Chow in The Hangover trilogy.

Biography

Jeong's wife, Tran Ho, is Vietnamese American, a family physician and a breast cancer survivor. They have two children. Jeong became engaged to Ho around 2003 or 2004.

Jeong was encouraged by his wife to quit his job as a physician and pursue acting full-time; Jeong states that "I had just finished filming Knocked Up, and it was life-changing. But I didn't have the courage to go for it until she persuaded me. Medicine is a hard-won skill, and acting can be a fickle profession, so I tried to be realistic. Now, I'm a spoiled actor. I get weekends off and hiatus weeks — time I never got as a doctor".

Bianca (Mae Whitman) is enjoying her senior year of high school with two close friends Jess (Skyler Samuels) and Casey (Bianca Santos) who are significantly more popular than she is. She is also the neighbor and former childhood friend of Wesley "Wes" Rush (Robbie Amell), a star on the school's football team, with whom she has fallen out during high school. She has a crush on guitar-playing Toby Tucker (Nick Eversman), and reluctantly attends a party hosted by mean-girl Madison Morgan (Bella Thorne), hoping to talk to him.

The DUFF does not actually have to be ugly or fat, he explains, it's just the person in a social group who is less popular and more accessible than the others in the group.
