Move over Jacinda Barrett, another alum from MTV’s “The Real World” is making a serious mark in Hollywood. Jamie Chung, who appeared on “Real World: San Diego” has landed another high profile movie gig according to Variety. The actress will appear in Todd Phillips‘ highly anticipated sequel The Hangover 2, which is currently in production.
The trade reports that Chung will star as the new fiancee of Ed Helm’s character Stu. As you might remember from the first film, Stu broke up with his then fiancee Melissa, who was played by Rachael Harris. It looked as if he was going to have a future with Heather Graham’s stripper character but that’s not going to happen. He’s found another leading lady.
Chung’s career has been on fire as of late. She appeared in the summer comedy Grown Ups alongside Adam Sandler and Chris Rock, she recently wrapped production on the thriller Premium Rush with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and she’s one of the ass-kicking ladies in Zack Snyder’s upcoming flick Sucker Punch! Someone give this woman’s agent a raise. She’s been working overtime.
What do you think of Chung joining the cast of The Hangover 2? Are you sad that Heather Graham won’t be returning?
