The film is scheduled to be released in the summer of 2016. He previously appeared in such films as Paul Weitz’ “Grandma” and Mora Stephens’ “Zipper” which were released earlier this year. Additionally Cho starred in Seth Gordon’s “Identity Thief” opposite Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman, J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek Into Darkness” and “That Burning Feeling,” a romantic comedy directed by Jason James. Cho first came into the spotlight in the 1999 breakthrough hit comedy “American Pie,” in which he popularized the slang term “MILF.” Cho recently reprised his role in the latest installment, “American Reunion.” Cho achieved near-household name status starring as “Harold Lee” in the cult comedies, “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle,” “Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay” and “A Very Harold & Kumar 3-D Christmas.” Cho’s additional film credits include Len Wiseman’s remake of the classic, “Total Recall” opposite Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale; Paul Weitz’ “American Dreamz,” opposite Willem Dafoe and Hugh Grant; Justin Lin’s “Better Luck Tomorrow;” Ho Yim’s “Pavilion of Women;” Steven Soderbergh’s “Solaris;” and the Best Picture Oscar® winner, “American Beauty.” In television, Cho was most recently seen starring in the ABC comedy series, “Selfie,” opposite Karen Gillan and as the corrupt ”Officer Andy Brooks” in Fox’s captivating drama series, “Sleepy Hollow.” He also starred in the NBC comedy, “Go On” opposite Matthew Perry. In addition to numerous guest-starring roles, he starred in ABC's drama series “Flashforward” and the Weitz Bros’ “Off Centre,” as well as Fox’s “Kitchen Confidential.” Born in Seoul, Korea, and raised in Los Angeles, California, Cho began acting while studying English literature at the University of California, Berkeley.
