Pilot News: Trophy Wife's Albert Tsai Joins ABC Comedy Dr. Ken

Albert Tsai Dr. Ken

Albert Tsai is, apparently, just what the doctor ordered.

The breakout star of last season’s Trophy Wife has been cast in ABC’s comedy pilot Dr. Ken, our sister site Deadline reports.

Tsai will play the son of Ken Jeong’s titular character, a frustrated HMO doctor who is juggling medicine, marriage and parenting — and succeeding at none of them.

Following Trophy Wife‘s cancellation, Tsai booked guest-starring roles in USA Network’s Benched and ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat. He previously worked with Jeong in an episode of TV Land’s Hot in Cleveland.

    Good news! It doesn’t make up for Trophy Wife being cancelled, but I’ll take it. It will be good to see him back on a show as a regular cast member. I suppose we’ll see how well the show does.

    To undergo this change they can turn on a completely

    not properly disposed off then those elements can harm the nature.

    Ken Jeong getting a chance to stretch out of his wacky weirdo role.hopefully. He is a doctor in real life if I remember correct.

    • Ron says:

      You do, indeed, remember correctly. He is in fact Ken Jeong, MD. I’m pretty sure there’s a funny story out there that when he was working on a movie (The Hangover, I think), he was playing his wacky character when all of a sudden a crew member collapsed or something from heat exhaustion (I think that’s what it was). And everyone said he raced over to save the guy and started spouting out all this medical jargon. It was funny to see him go from his Hangover character to actual doctor in a matter of seconds for the cast.
