Randall Park fans are overloading TikTok with praise for the comedic actor thanks to his role on Disney Plus’ WandaVision.
Park is no stranger to Hollywood hits — the actor starred in ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat, Netflix’s Always Be My Maybe and HBO’s Veep. Park reprised his role as Agent Jimmy Woo, his character from Ant-Man and the Wasp, and stars alongside Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany as Wanda Maximoff and Vision, respectively.
Who is Agent Jimmy Woo?
WandaVision follows Wanda and Vision three weeks after the events of Avengers: Endgame. The surreal sitcom is an unconventional departure from most Marvel properties and because it’s so bizarre, the details will be kept sparse to prevent spoilers.

Jimmy Woo is a character from Marvel’s Cinematic Universe and the parole officer of Scott Lang, a.k.a. Ant-Man. While Woo is a very serious federal agent, he still has Park’s signature deadpan humor.
What is the #JimmyWoo trend on TikTok?
Fans of Park are creating videos to celebrate the actor’s numerous and eclectic television roles.
The way the #JimmyWoo meme works is a user will say they are watching a television show or movie for one reason.
Then they play the “SIKEEE Woo Wednesday” sound on TikTok, which loudly screeches the phrase “sike” — another way of saying “just kidding.”
Like the time user @mymomdoesntbeatmelol watched the UCLA graduation ceremony “just because” only to reveal the real reason (sike!) was Park was giving a speech at the end.
Some more examples of the #JimmyWoo trend.
One person, @theokatz99, revealed Park played a teacher on Nickelodeon’s iCarly.
Another user, @matt.2324, unearthed footage of Park on MTV’s freestyle rap series Wild N Out.
Thanks to @aznboi2419 you may have just learned Park was a guest on Hell’s Kitchen.
This hardly encompasses all the roles in the Randall Park Cinematic Universe, so be sure to check out the #JimmyWoo hashtag which has over 159 million views.
