James Hong (Feb. 22, 1929, Minneapolis, MN). Originally having studied civil engineering at the University of Minnesota and the University of Southern California, he worked for the County of Los Angeles while also working in the movies. Quiting after 18 months, he became a full time actor and was one of the founders of the East-West Players, the oldest Asian American theater in Los Angeles. After 60 years of acting, he is one of the most prolific and well-recognized Asian-American character actors in movies and television.

He played the Chinese restaurant manager Chen in The Big Bang Theory, in the episodes, "The Dumpling Paradox" and "The Tangerine Factor" between 2007-2008.
