Fox has signed thesp John Cho (“Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle”) to a talent deal.

Under the deal, valued in the mid-six figures, Fox and sib studio 20th Century Fox TV will develop a potential comedy vehicle for Cho.

The actor is already signed on to star in at least eight episodes of “Kitchen Confidential,” the new single-camera Fox laffer set in the New York restaurant world. Cho plays Teddy Wong, one of the chefs brought in by Jack Bourdain (Bradley Cooper) to help open a new hot eatery.

If a Cho series comes to fruition, his managers, Principato-Young Entertainment, will also be involved. Cho starred in the short-lived WB laffer “Off Centre,” and was a lead on NBC’s “Men’s Room,” which was picked up but never aired.
