Ken Jeong, the original naked Chinese mob boss, has landed an expanded role on Hangover III.
The doctor-turned-actor has inked a deal with Warner Bros., to not only return to the blockbuster franchise, but to play in significantly expanded role for the third edition.
Jeong was relatively unknown at the time of the release of The Hangover in 2009, but he was solidified as a respectable character. Thus, he starred in the 2nd edition of the franchise, where he appeared to die of a cocaine overdose, but later was discovered to be alive in an ice box.
The studio is keeping details of The Hangover: Part III under wraps. Jeong is the last major actor to signed on for the upcoming film, which also stars Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis who have already signed to return.
Todd Phillips’ directed film will take place in Tijuana and is slated for release Memorial Day 2013.
