King Kang: Getting to know Cho of 'The Mentalist'

One of my favorite shows is "The Mentalist," and I would like to know anything about the actor who plays Cho.San Francisco native Tim Kang is the performer in question. "The Mentalist" is the longest series gig he's had to date, though he appeared in multiple episodes of "Third Watch." A graduate of Harvard University and the University of California at Berkeley, Kang - who studied at the Moscow Art Theatre School as well - also had notable roles in the feature films "Rambo," "The Forgotten" and "Two Weeks Notice."

Will we see the program "Nashville Star" again?Apparently not, at least for now. After spending its first five seasons on USA Network, the competition moved to cousin network NBC in 2008 - with Billy Ray Cyrus assuming the role of host - but the ratings weren't enough for the broadcaster to want to continue it. With other outlets such as Country Music Television in existence, there's always a chance the show could be revived elsewhere. - Zap2itSend questions of general interest via e-mail to tvpipeline@tribune.com.
