Acting isn't a profession that requires a college degree, or even a high school diploma. Yet contrary to "dumb actor" stereotypes, there are a number of stars with advanced degrees.

Probably best-known as the creepy janitor on "Community," Ken Jeong has also starred in movies like "The Hangover" and "Pineapple Express," and he's one of the few actors in Hollywood who is a real-life medical doctor. Jeong was a member of the High IQ team in high school and graduated early at the age of 16. After receiving his undergraduate degree at Duke University, Jeong completed his medical degree at the University of North Carolina and performed his residency at the New Orleans Ochsner Medical Center. It was in New Orleans that Jeong began doing stand-up and eventually decided to pursue comedy in Los Angeles.
