The Best Article About The Hangover Part III is Mostly All About The Hangover Part I

Everything you always wanted to know but were afraid to ask about Mike Tyson and Ken Jeong’s stellar supporting work in The Hangover can be savored this week in The Hollywood Reporter. In an ingenious editorial move, executive editor Matthew Belloni and senior TV writer Lacey Rose chucked the usual script for sequel promotion and orchestrated instead a rollicking oral history of the 2009 R-rated smash that started it all. (The final Part III installment opens in theaters May 24.)

FishbowlLA can never get enough of Jeong’s Mr. Chow. In the article, the actor’s work is fully retraced, from the audition to the origins of some of the most repeated lines to a touching backstory:

JEONG: It was a very magical shoot. My wife was going through breast cancer and chemotherapy at the time. [She recovered.] It was part of the reason I was so unhinged in the character; I think I was working out my own demons. Todd and Bradley were the only people who knew.

Around the eight-and-a-half-minute mark, Maron tells Lazar about his upcoming IFC show Maron, an offshoot of his podcast success debuting in May. “If you haven’t had your fill of me, there’s more me coming in a different format,” the comedian joked. “It’s all I have.”

Movieline Has Found Something Else Tragic About Community

yvettenicole-thumb-585xauto-5204.jpg

We’ve been coping with the fact Community with Joel McHale and Chevy Chase misses all of its marks. This has been very hard on us. We think Dr. Ken or Ken Jeong is one of the funniest people on the planet. So much talent. So much possibility.

And yet, Community stinks. It’s maudlin, cliche and lame. It’s the kind of show where the only charm is it can be easily translated into other languages. Yes, in South American Fran Drescher‘s The Nanny is huge.

We tried to like Community again last night. We gave it another chance. As we were watching it, we thought to ourselves,”Hm, the opening credits are pretty clever.”

And then a Movieline fan caught this. A (ahem) knife drawn through Nicole Brown? Very classy.

Get it? “Classy?” It’s a show about school. Huh? Yep, that’s still funnier than the show.
