VIC IS A SERIES REGULAR ON THE NEW UNTITLED BRENDA HAMPTON PILOT!!! This is a new pilot for ABC Family created by Brenda Hampton, the creator of the long-running 7th Heaven and the ABC Family hit The Secret Life Of The American Teenager. If the pilot gets picked up, it is believed that Vic’s family on the show could be the first ever Asian American family on a prime time drama!


MEGA SHARK VS GIANT OCTOPUS IS SWEEPING THE INTERNET!  The movie, starring Vic Chao, Deborah Gibson, and Lorenzo Lamas has been profiled in Aint It Cool News, LA Times, New York Post, The Guardian, People, Entertainment Weekly, Best Week Ever, The Onion AV Club, and Angry Asian Man just to name a few.  The YouTube Trailer and MTV Trailer have each registered close to a million hits.  Vic has screened the movie and will be sharing his thoughts on the movie, the actors, and inside tips to watch for as well as photos on his blog.


Vic just network tested for the CBS pilot Washington Fields.  It went down to just two people for a great series regular role on this FBI-centered drama.  While the network test went extremely well, unfortunately the role went to the other candidate.  Vic is disappointed, but happy to have been part of an exhilarating, mentally exhausting, triumphant, and heartbreaking process.  He will post some blogs soon on the process.


Vic recurs on the FOX hit show 24 as FBI Agent Mark Dornan.  Vic recurred previously in season 4 as CTU Agent McCallan and was honored to be brought back for the final season of 24 as a new character.


Vic wraps shooting on Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus, starring Lorenzo Lamas, Deborah Gibson, and Vic.  Vic plays Dr. Shimada, the love interest to Deborah Gibson’s character Emma McNeil.  Vic can now say that he’s made out with Deborah Gibson in a broom closet---yeah it was for a scene in the movie, but that still counts.


Vic plays Dr. Shamada in the Electronic Arts video game Command & Conquer Red Alert 3: Uprising, to be released on March 12.
