Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “‘Harold & Kumar’ star John Cho tells Daily News that politics stands in the way of series’ future”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

“I have not tried to max out, but I can eat a lot,” the 47-year-old “Harold & Kumar go the White Castle” star told the Daily News this week. “I’m considering turning pro, let’s put it that way.”

Cho, who stars in “The Grudge” reboot, out next month, doesn’t know how kindly audiences would take to revisiting the comical pair now.

“I don’t know how Harold and Kumar would fare in 2019," Cho, who played Harold, told The News. “They’re ... politically down the middle, I’d say, and the middle is not a place to be today."

“I feel like those characters, in the movie, have always balked at politics in general and I’m not sure how we navigate the humor and where the humor wants to go and sort of play down the middle, which sounds like we’re tapping out, but it’s not,” said the “Star Trek” actor.

In the first three films, Harold and Kumar (Kal Penn) are Asian-American stoner buddies who hunt down White Castle’s signature burgers (in 2004′s “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle”), are mistakenly imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay (in the 2008 sequel aptly titled “Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay”) and seek out a Christmas tree (in 2011′s third installment, “A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas”).
