Whatever Happened to Harold & Kumar?

Hello Boys and Girls!

It’s Easter and it’s time to spend quality lunches, dinners and chocolate-hunting with your family. And so with some spare time on my hands after a month in New York I subscribed to Netflix (which is an incredible resource by the way!) and started discovering some old gems that I never previously had the chance to see.

This dog loves Netflix too...!

One such gem is of course “Harold & Kumar Get The Munchies” (originally titled “Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle”), a classic of the stoner movies, and a new favourite I never realised would be.

Harold & Kumar Get The Munchies - brilliant!

Those chaps are simply awesome. Kal Penn who plays Kumar, is hilarious as the lazy stoner best friend, whilst John Cho who plays Harold is perfect as the hard-working stoner office worker.

You may actually remember from this iconic scene in the first American Pie:

After appearing in a bunch of movies such as Son of the Mask, Epic Movie and Superman Returns, Kal left Hollywood to begin work as the Associate Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement in the Obama administration in January 2009….!

He briefly left his post to film the third instalment of the Harold & Kumar movies, and is now firmly back at the White House.

What next for the Harold & Kumar boys?

Kal is firmly staying put at the White House whereas John’s success has been boosted by his role in the JJ Abrams Star Trek remake. He can next be seen in Total Recall as well as another Star Trek sequel.

That’s all for now boys and girls…..

Happy Easter!
