A Hollywood actor who attended UC Irvine and Cal State Fullerton will play the role of a murdered adult film actor in an upcoming true crime episode of "Fatal Encounters" on Investigation Discovery channel.

William Ngo--who is of Chinese, French and Vietnamese descent--guest stars in the show's second season premier, "Living on the Edge," as Herbert Wong, the 30-year-old Asian porno star who was killed by a fellow porn actor in a bizarre 2010 samurai sword attack.

Wong's porno name was Tom Dong.

Ngo tells me the show is "a heart-wrenching story about a man who pursued his own happiness and was shunned by his family for it."

OC Weekly's sister paper in Los Angeles published Michael Albo's cover story about the crime last year.

Ngo has appeared in numerous national commercials, short films, music videos and television shows.

According to the channel's website, the Investigation Discovery episode is scheduled to air at 10 p.m. on Monday, May 28, but I'm not sure if the listed time is for the East Coast.
