A Korean-American actor, Justin Chon is best known for his supporting role in the Twilight film franchise. His father appeared in South Korean films as a youth and inspired Justin to follow a career in acting. After winning his earliest minor screen roles while in his early 20s, Chon quickly ascended to more significant parts, notably playing the brother of the title character in the hit Disney Channel movie "Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior" (2006). Soon thereafter, he scored a recurring role on the sitcom "Just Jordan" (Nickelodeon, 2007-08) and found a much wider fan base when he was cast in the part of high school student Eric Yorkie in the blockbuster supernatural drama "Twilight" (2008), based on Stephanie Meyer's young-adult book of the same name. After appearing in subsequent installments of the hugely popular series, Chon finally landed a lead role in the raucous coming-of-age comedy "21 & Over" (2013). With his likable, laidback charm, Chon was able to alternate easily between dramas and comedies and win parts that weren't contingent on his Asian-American background.
