EXCLUSIVE: Ken Jeong Talks ‘Turbo’ Blu-ray

Like many animated movies, DreamWorks Animation's Turbo features an amazing ensemble cast of voice actors such as Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Michael Peña, Samuel L. Jackson, Luis Guzmán and Snoop Lion, just to name a few. Then there's the incomparable Ken Jeong, who plays the cranky Korean woman Kim Ly in this DreamWorks Animation comedy, a role he also reprises in the Netflix TV series Turbo FAST. I recently had the chance to speak with the actor over the phone about the Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD release, where we discussed what drew him to this role and much more. Take a look at what he had to say.

First off, this is a hilarious character. What goes through your mind when they approached you to voice an old woman?

SET VISIT: ‘The Hangover Part III’ with the Wolf Pack!

SET VISIT: ‘The Hangover Part III’ with the Wolf Pack!

Roosters were heard cackling as I walked onto the set of The Hangover Part III on the Warner Bros. lot last November. Needless to say, given the history of this hilarious, blockbuster franchise, I was not surprised. After two highly-successful installments (The Hangover and The Hangover Part II have combined to earn more than $1 billion at the box office worldwide), which have included tigers, monkeys, crazy (lawsuit-inducing) face tattoos, bizarre gangsters, and much more lunacy, the one thing that might be surprising is that director Todd Phillips is wrapping up his beloved series after three movies. Although there will likely be more than enough demand for at least one more movie, The Hangover Part III will be the last of The Wolf Pack's madcap adventures.

Oh yeah, the roosters. The scene they were shooting on that late November day was set in a rundown Tijuana, Mexico house. The Wolf Pack - Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), and Alan (Zach Galifianakis) have caught up with enigmatic Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong), who is running a cock-fighting ring in TJ. This scene involved the trio confronting Chow, when Alan suddenly falls on a crate of roosters, and all hell breaks loose. Just another day in the life of The Wolf Pack.
