As the self-proclaimed “El Tigre Chino,” Ken Jeong‘s character on NBC’s comedy Community has always been the most outlandish out of an ensemble cast of quirky misfits, but creator Dan Harmon reveals that we’ve only just begun the journey into the “insane” mind of Ben Chang.
Returning to Greendale with a new job as a security guard, Ben will be given a more in-depth background including a story told in noir-style about his earlier life.
Harmon shares, “I wanted to tell a story of acquiring power and what it does to you. It’s a little Macbeth or Scarface. Or maybe something from The Wire…[Ben] is corrupt in the sense that the campus is less secure than if he wasn’t a security guard. But he’s mostly insane.”
Make sure to catch the new season of NBC’s Community on September 22, 2011.
