  Biography  

 early life
Cho was born in Seoul, South Korea, and raised in Los Angeles, where his family settled in 1978. His father was a minister in the Church of Christ, and was originally from North Korea. Cho graduated from Herbert Hoover High School in Glendale, California, in 1991. He then attended the University of California, Berkeley, graduating in 1996 with a BA degree in English, and taught English at Pacific Hills School in West Hollywood, California.

 career
Cho began his career as a print model for Korean magazines, and after appearing in advertisements for companies such as Enterprise Rent-A-Car. After graduating from Berkeley, he moved to Los Angeles, and worked with the Asian American theatre company East West Players, appearing in Edward Sakamoto's The Taste of Kona Coffee in 1996, and Euijoon Kim's My Tired Broke Ass Pontificating Slapstick Funk in 2000. He gained attention with a small role in the 1999 comedy American Pie, in which he popularized the slang term "MILF". His most successful starring role to date has been as Harold Lee in 2004's Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle. Cho was one of the stars of the short-lived situation comedy Off Centre, and guest-starred on Charmed as a ghost. He was a costar of the now-defunct Fox sitcom Kitchen Confidential. Cho had supporting roles in American Beauty, Evolution and Down to Earth, and a minor role in Bowfinger.

In 2002, Cho had a starring role in the ensemble cast of Better Luck Tomorrow, a drama focusing on the travails of a group of Asian Americans living in Southern California who are academically successful but socially discontented, and as a result engage in wantonly violent, criminal behavior. He was cast in NBC's new comedy The Singles Table in September 2006, but the series never aired due to changes in scheduling and production. In 2006 and 2009, Cho was selected as one of the sexiest men alive in People Magazine.

Cho appeared on July 2004 issue of KoreAm Journal. In 2007, Cho was added to the cast of Ugly Betty as a recurring regular. Cho plays Kenny, a best friend of accountant Henry Grubstick . Cho played helmsman Hikaru Sulu in J. J. Abrams's feature film Star Trek.

Cho appeared in Nas's "Be a Nigger Too" music video along with various celebrities, and had a guest appearance on the sitcom How I Met Your Mother, in the episode "I'm Not That Guy".

In 2009–10, Cho starred in the TV series FlashForward as FBI Special Agent Demetri Noh. His character was originally slated to be killed off during what turned out to be the show's only season, but after his turn as Sulu in Star Trek boosted his popularity, the producers revised the show's storyline so that he survived, in an attempt to boost declining ratings.
