Jang stars in Take Out, a feature film now playing at the Quad Cinemas in Manhattan, as well as the Kew Gardens Cinema in Queens and the Jacob Burns Films Center in Pleasantville, NY. Jang plays Ming Ding, an illegal Chinese immigrant working as a deliveryman for a Chinese take-out shop in New York. The character gets caught up in a high-pressure race to pay back a group of smugglers, and must go to extremes to raise the money in one day.
