Ken Jeong to Star in WWE-Produced Comedy with Hulk Hogan and David Hasselhoff
Ken Jeong is breaking into the world of WWE movies. Variety reports that the Community favorite has signed on to star in a comedy for WWE Studios with a working title of Untitled Celebrity Death Pool. The film will center on Jeong’s character as “a struggling nightclub owner who after amassing a large debt from a loan shark, sets out to win a long-running celebrity death pool by attempting to kill Hasselhoff.” Hasselhoff and WWE’s own Hulk Hogan have both signed on to make cameo appearances.
Untitled Celebrity Death Pool isn’t the only starring role to be announced for Jeong this summer; he’s also set to topline the Steve Carell-produced film International Incident and an MTV pilot called Ken Jeong Made Me Do It.
