New images from the Michigan set of A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas have surfaced today along with the news that Patton Oswalt has been cast as a villain. With a tweet message from the film's director, Jon Hurwitz stated, "Harold & Kumar 3 has officially started shooting. That is all."

The atmosphere in Michigan was quite twitter happy, as other stars also chimed in from the set. Harold himself John Cho left the following message, "In Michigan. @pattonoswalt in my vicinity, holding a sketch pad, duct tape, and a reel to reel audio recorder. Eeesh." Patton Oswalt responded in kind by saying, "Maybe it's this Michigan air, but @JohnTheCho is looking huggable, chloroform-able, and bury-able."

Does this mean that Patton is an official cast member? Hurwitz remained coy about this saying only, "Cannot confirm whether or not @pattonoswalt was cast in Harold & Kumar 3, or if he's simply on an espionage mission for the Ruskies."
