(CNN) — If Ken Jeong has his way, “The Hangover” wouldn’t end with this weekend’s third installment.

To actor, there’s one unsung hero of the franchise whose story has yet to be fully explored: his own diabolical Mr. Chow.

“I would love to do a Chow spinoff,” the actor told CNN at “Hangover III’s” premiere in Westwood, California on Monday. “Chow’s my favorite character I’ve ever played. For me right now, nothing can get beyond the fact that this is the last one we’re ever going to do together.”

While it’s sad, Jeong’s also feeling grateful, because “not many actors get to work with people like this for one movie, and I got the opportunity to do this for three. I’ll look back on this years from now as the best times of my career.”

If he does somehow manage to get another “Hangover”-related movie out, it doesn’t sound like he’d have an easy time roping in the rest of the cast. Bradley Cooper matter-of-factly said of “Hangover’s” conclusion that “everything has to end at some point. This is the time to go out on a high note. [Director] Todd Phillips spent the last six years of his life making these movies, so we’ve been blessed in that sense, but it’s over.”

Phillips himself sounds satisfied with having just a trilogy.

“For us, it’s a story thing. When you’re writing it, and if you’re a fan, you know [Zach Galifianakis’] Alan character was the one stone left unturned,” Phillips said. “And we thought, we have to solve him. And when he’s OK, they can finally move on, because he’s the one who causes all the trouble.”

Well, part of it, at least. Jeong’s Mr. Chow definitely helps him out – but could a part four of “The Hangover” be all about Chow? We think so.

“Yeah,” Phillips said with a laugh. “That’s what Ken thinks too.”
