As Ride Along 2 continues filming in Miami, one of the sequel’s newest cast member’s Ken Jeong may soon hit TV with his own show on MTV. Reports are out that he will be working on an upcoming pilot for the network.
His casting lifts the contingency on the pilot, from young writers Andy St. Clair and Paul O’Toole, which will now be titled “Ken Jeong Made Me Do It.” Community’s Ken Jeong is going on a ride with MTV. The Hangover star has landed a leading role in the youth-skewing cable network’s coming-of-age comedy pilot, The Hollywood Reporter has learned, with the project now titled Ken Jeong Made Me Do It. The comedy entry revolves around 22-year-old Andy, who, after catching his girlfriend cheating, accidentally rear-ends Jeong’s fancy car. Taking pity on Andy, Jeong takes it upon himself to teach him how to man up. Jeong will play himself, with the casting lifting the contingency on the pilot. The pilot will not prevent Jeong from returning to Community, with the MTV entry working around the in-demand actor’s schedule.
