Ken Jeong’s Debut on NBC’s Community

Last week, Ken Jeong made his debut in the second episode of the new NBCs show Community, a comedy which follows the lives of community college students of diverse backgrounds. In the show, Ken portrays the self-described Spanish teacher, Señor Chang. In his first class, Señor Chang gives a nice little speech about him being a Spanish teacher: “Every once in a while, a student will come up to me and ask ‘Why do you teach Spanish?’ ” This reminded me of when I first started work and someone asked me – “Where are you from?” – and when I reply I’m from Massachusetts, he asked me “No, where are you really from?”

Why can’t Ken Jeong be a Spanish teacher? Of course he can be and that is what I love about his speech… Señor Chang then goes a little crazy and I worry he’s going to be a Vince Vaughn like character, but then acts normally – which I hope Ken remains, since in a lot of his movie roles, who often goes overboard, which can get tiring quickly.

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .

About John

I'm a Taiwanese-American and was born & raised in Western Massachusetts, went to college in upstate New York, worked in Connecticut, went to grad school in North Carolina and then moved out to the Bay Area in 1999 and have been living here ever since - love the weather and almost everything about the area (except the high cost of housing...)
