On ” ‘Til Death,” also from SPT, Cho will play the arch nemesis to Jeff Woodcock (Eddie Kaye Thomas). In three episodes, Cho will play the principal of a prestigious private school who squares off with Woodcock, the public school’s vice principal.
Cho is best known for starring opposite Kal Penn in the feature “Harold & Kumar” and its upcoming sequel.
Both Cho and Penn will appear on Fox next season. Penn has been tapped as a recurring on the network’s hit drama “House.”
