Tom Lennon Interview for "A VERY HAROLD & KUMAR 3D CHRISTMAS"
Independent Films, Talk Shows, Interviews
Tom Lennon of "Reno 911" fame has been a busy bee. Besides scriptwriting (he wrote the "Night at the Museum" movies), he also stars in movies such as the upcoming "A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas." In the film, he plays Harold's new friend, Todd, who's a straight-laced father. He and his baby nearly stole the film!
I first met the comedian for the press junket for "17 Again," and he's always refreshing to talk to. Lennon has a dry wit, and you have to constantly stay on your toes to keep up.
In this interview, we talked about:
*** Why he decided to join the "Harold & Kumar" franchise
*** His baby
*** Shooting the Christmas movie in Detroit in the middle of the summer
*** Was he a fan of the franchise?
*** He's not the most reliable pot smoker
*** The best muchie ever!
*** What's going on with "Reno 911?" Are we going to see him again as Lt. Dangle?
Transcripts / Production notes / Scripts
After years of growing apart, Harold Lee and Kumar Patel have replaced each other with new friends and are preparing for their respective Yuletide celebrations. But when a mysterious package mistakenly arrives at Kumar's door on Christmas Eve, his attempt to redirect it to Harold's house ends with the "high grade" contents -- and Harold's father-in-law's prize Christmas tree -- going up in smoke.
