Good news of the day. We’ve been talking about Harold and Kumar 3 quite a bit lately thanks to a recent Twitter kerfuffle between John Cho and Patton Oswalt. And now thanks to an update from one of the franchise’s other stars, we know that Neil Patrick Harris will make his triumphant return to the world of traveling stoners.
The news comes from Hollywood.com, who spoke with NPH on the set of The Smurfs earlier yesterday. Explains Hollywood’s Daniel Hubschman: “Even though he was mowed down by Beverly D’Angelo’s madame in the 2008 sequel Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay, NPH will make a glorious, unexplained return to the series.”
I doubt that anyone cares how his return is explained, or whether or not it makes any logical sense. The fact is that NPH will return to the franchise and will undoubtedly bring the laughs. As he does in everything he does — including Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog and on the delightful CBS show How I Met Your Mother.
Where there is NPH, there is happiness. With my powers of deductive reasoning, I’ve determined that Harold and Kumar 3 (or whatever it’s going to be called) is worth keeping an eye on. I’m deductive like that.
