While seeing Funny People yesterday, I noticed a very disturbing trend -- no not that Robert Zemeckis' A Christmas Carol looks absurd and fuel to the unfortunate 3D fire -- but that Ken Jeong (that asian guy from every Judd Apataw-produced flick ever made) was in not one, not two, not three, but FOUR previews that I saw -- out of six!
You'll see his work in The Couples Retreat, All About Steve, Despicable Me and The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard. Talk about striking while the iron is hot. Jeong, a kind of funny looking middle-aged asian man, has been in everything from Knocked Up to Role Models to the recent smash-hit The Hangover.
He's become, almost overnight, the obligitory rated-R funny-asian-male-wacko-peripheral-character and I've gotta say that I've had enough. It was funny the first time, but it's time to move on, see ya. The guy's schtick is becoming more stale than Will Ferrell when he made Blades of Glory and Semi-Pro. Put it up, we've seen it.
