Now that they've made it through an honest-to-God trilogy, are cinema's silliest stoners ready to conquer the small screen?
According to The Hollywood Reporter, on the eve of "A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas" being dropped into theaters Lionsgate is currently shopping an animated TV show featuring the high times of these now-iconic characters.
Both John Cho and Kal Penn, who were thought to be done with the series, are onboard to voice Harold and Kumar, respectively, and original writer/creators Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, who have penned all three movies and directed the second, are attached to continue scripting their baby. Gotta have quality control.
Interestingly enough, "Christmas" already features an extended sequence in which the boys get done up in some old school Will Vinton-style clamation, but the article does not state what style the proposed series would be done in.
It also doesn't state what era in Harold and Kumar's timeline the series will take place, either pre-"White Castle" when they're still in college or *SPOILER* post-"Christmas" when they have to face the challenges of becoming fathers. We actually think the pair will make an excellent pair of puff daddies.
Lionsgate has supposedly received several offers already from various cable networks for the show, as it will mos def be too hot for network TV, but is likely waiting for the returns of this weekend's release before they begin negotiating.
