NBC has signed a talent deal with actor-comedian Randall Park, in part based on Park’s comedy short Blueberry (video below). In film, Park, repped by TalentWorks and Levity, had a role in Dinner for Schmucks and will be seen in Larry Crowne. On TV, he co-starred in Fox’s comedy pilot Tax Man last season.
Park is one of my favorite comedic actors around. And the fact that he has a master’s degree in Asian American studies from UCLA makes him one smart cookie. Keep your fingers crossed that this deal leads to something big.
