Who's that sexy undead leader in 'Vampires Suck', seductively licking his lips, whipping his cape and rocking the white, white pancake makeup? It's Ken Jeong, of course, the most awesome doctor-turned-actor ever (He also recently hosted AOL's Geek Awards).

No matter what he's in, Dr. Ken's signature in-your-face hilarity ensures he steals every scene. Whether he's kicking ass while naked in 'The Hangover', scolding slackers on 'Community' or dishing out advice in 'Couples Retreat', he brings a certain je ne sai quoi to all of his roles.

His latest role is the mysterious Zolturi leader Daro in the spoof 'Vampires Suck.' While the spoof genre has gotten a little stale since the Wayans Brothers stopped making parodies, I'll see pretty much anything if Dr. Ken is in it. My only beef is that he's always a supporting character, and never a lead. Note to Hollywood studios: Dr. Ken can carry a movie. Just give him a chance!

He's already pretty tight with the Judd Apatow crew, after having roles in' Knocked Up' and 'Pineapple Express.' Apatow is famous for writing leading roles for unlikely leading men, like Steve Carell in 'The 40 Year Old Virgin' and Seth Rogen in 'Knocked Up.' When will it be Dr. Ken's turn? Apatow should write a script for him. He can be the aggressive nerd with a heart of gold who's really just looking for love, or something along those lines. Dr. Ken is skilled at playing prickly, tightly-wound, slightly-angry dudes, but he's also capable of showing a softer side, too. That takes skills, yo.

To top off this Dr. Ken gushfest, I would like to now segue to the Top 10 Reasons Why Ken Jeong is Awesome:

1. He's an MD. That's right. He's Dr. Ken to you.
2. His wife is also a doctor, so he's obviously not one of those guys who's intimidated by smart ladies.
3. He's not afraid to bare all on camera. He'll show his penis on the big screen.
4. Even with a purse and heels in 'The Hangover,' he was still totally bad-ass as the erratic villain Mr. Chow.
5. He cried during his MTV Movie Awards speech. Real men aren't afraid to cry.
6. He braved the WWE ring as a pimp-clad guest of Jeremy Piven. (We're willing to overlook the fact that he was hanging out with Jeremy Piven.)
7. He makes community college look like fun as Senor Chang on 'Community.' Getting yelled at by Senor Chang would make the tuition totally worthwhile.
8. He has great hair. It's so shiny, and just the right length. Not too long, not too short. Just right.
9. He held his own against Christopher Mintz-Plasse (McLovin') as the medieval role-playing super-nerd in 'Role Models.'
10. Despite all of his success, he hasn't gotten "too Hollywood." He's always talking about how grateful he is for his success. Note to other celebrities – being grateful is endearing. Being entitled is obnoxious. We fans are fickle – appreciate us or risk alienation!
