Ken Jeong - also known as Dr. Ken - is an actor, comedian and former physician of internal medicine! The father of 3 1/2-year-old twins, Alexa and Zooey, opens up in the June edition of REDBOOK about his upcoming hit The Hangover Part II, his diverse career and his loving family.
On his supportive wife: "My wife, Tran, encouraged me to quit my job as a doctor [of internal medicine] at 36 and pursue acting full-time. I had just finished filming Knocked Up, and it was life-changing. But I didn't have the courage to go for it until she persuaded me. Medicine is a hard-won skill, and acting can be a fickle profession, so I tried to be realistic. Now, I'm a spoiled actor. I get weekends off and hiatus weeks ? time I never got as a doctor."
