Why Ken Jeong Got Naked In 'The Hangover'

Ken Jeong, star of 'The Hangover Part III', talks about how his character, Chow, was born from a dark place - and how that led to his decision to bare all in the original Hangover movie.

He also gets into the genuine bond between the members of the Hangover cast, and his long-standing friendship with Zach Galifianakis, dating back to 1998 (with video evidence to prove it...).

You can see the full interview with Ken on the show July 10, and catch 'The Hangover Part III' in theatres tomorrow, Friday May 24.

In this clip, Ken talks about...

Why he decided to get naked in 'The Hangover'

"It's been five years, my wife is still cancer-free. And I believe, yeah, I mean, a lot of that informed me of playing Mr Chow.... I played it so aggressively in many ways because I believe life is short... This sounds strange, because it was my choice to do it naked in the first movie... Whatever your instincts are in life, just go for it. Life is short, you have nothing to lose."
