The stars of "Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay" sat down for a panel today at the South by Southwest Film Festival. Here are Neil Patrick Harris and Hollywood's currently stoner-types, John Cho and Kal Penn.
Someone in the audience asked Cho and Penn if they did a lot of research for their roles, and Cho looked back at the questioner a bit incredulously. "We did a lot of blow," he said. "Then we were told that was incorrect." Laugher and a chatter about tomorrow's headlines erupted.
Penn admitted he actually did do a little research for his part. His character, Kumar, is enamoured by Doogie Howser, who off course was played to great fame by Neil Patrick Harris. Said Penn, I think I actually watched every episode. Unlike Cho, he was serious.
All hail Doogie!
